Another care centre refurbishment, this time in the Meridian Healthcare Classic brand. As well as having a refurbishment of the communal areas Kirkby had two exciting additions. The first was a SOL room. These are safe sun rooms kitted out like beaches where residents can enjoy the benefits of sun all year round in complete safety.
The second change is the garden. More and more care facilities are realising the benefits of a beautiful garden, not only to sit in and relax but residents are encouraged to grow and tend; some of the care centres even have regular gardening clubs that grow veg and flowers.
