Huntercombe Hall Care Home in Henley-on-Thames has been celebrating the completion of its extensive refurbishment and revival project with a 1940s and 50s themed party.
The event brought residents, colleagues, and members of the local community together to witness the grand unveiling of its stunning transformation.
As part of Aria Care’s ambitious £18 million revival project, Huntercombe Hall has undergone a comprehensive makeover. The community is now poised to offer an exceptional experience, seamlessly blending modern amenities with timeless charm.
The highlight of the event was the renaming of The Winston Churchill Library. The revamped library is set to become the heart of Huntercombe Hall, offering a place for relaxation, and social engagement.
Notable features of the refurbishment programme include:
- Creation of a new Café Bistro for residents, relatives and visitors to enjoy.
- Redecoration of the main resident day spaces including lounges and dining rooms.
- Refurbished bedrooms and en-suites for improved comfort.
- A revamped hair salon offering residents the opportunity to engage in self-care.
- Brand new spa bathroom offering the opportunity to indulge in a spa-like experience.
- Creation of an additional outdoor seating area so residents and families can enjoy the beautiful grounds overlooking the stunning Oxfordshire countryside.
Huntercombe Hall’s revival aligns with Aria Care’s vision of being the leading care provider, known for exceptional quality of care, innovative services, and a compassionate approach.
Pete Watt, Home Manager at Huntercombe Hall said, “It was great to have one of our Centenarians, Jean Eastwood, unveil the plaque for the newly refurbished and renamed “Winston Churchill Library”. As Churchill said, ‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give’, and Jean, like all our residents, is a wonderful embodiment of that phrase.”
Pete continued, “the investment in the home has made a real difference to our residents and the colleagues who work with them. It was lovely to be able to share this celebration with our families and our neighbours in the community. A community that we are proud to be at the heart of as we look forward to enjoying our beautiful surroundings with them in the days and years ahead.”
Caroline Roberts, CEO of Aria Care, said: “Ensuring the wellbeing and comfort of the people that live and work in our communities has always been our top priority. By revitalising our communities, we aim to create a nurturing and vibrant atmosphere that truly feels like home, where care is given from the heart.”
This transformation represents a new chapter in Huntercombe Hall’s rich history, promising their continuing commitment to providing the best possible care and living environment.
