Specialist dementia care home opened in Tile Hill

Emily Fish 9th Jul, 2017

A CARE scheme designed to provide a homely environment for people with dementia has been opened in Tile Hill.

Arden Grove was declared open by the care complex’s first resident, Eileen Garland, as she cut the ribbon – in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Coventry.

The specialist housing offers support throughout the day and night while providing an environment where residents can flourish.

It offers communal spaces on each floor where people can meet, eat together and socialise with the added benefit of individual apartments for privacy and independence.

Elisabeth Buggins is the chair of Accord and helped plant a rose bush in honour of Eileen.

She said: “The opening of Arden Grove means a great deal to Accord and all involved, as this is the first brand new care facility built by Accord in seven years.

“We are very proud of the ethos and care model that is right at the heart of the service we provide here at Arden Grove.”

More than 50 people gathered to celebrate the opening – enjoying afternoon tea in the atrium and joining residents and their families for a singalong.

Maxine Espley, executive director of Care and Support at Accord, said the opening ceremony was warm and wonderful.

She added: “At Arden Grove, we have developed a unique care model for every customer that utilises our significant experience and expertise of working with people with dementia.

“Our teams have undergone comprehensive training and have access to a specialist team who can work with our staff, customers and family members when things change or additional care is needed.”
