September saw the official opening of Low Furlong Care Home on Darlingscote Road. The brand new, purpose built 68 bed residential home replaces the original home which was demolished to make way for a more modern, privately-run facility.
The new Low Furlong, run by Runwood Homes Senior Living, offers support for a wide range of elderly care needs, including provision for those living with dementia. The building provides high quality accommodation, including quiet and ‘retro’ lounges, a central patio area and bedrooms with ensuite facilities. In addition to private accommodation, the home has a number of local authority-funded places.
Mayor, Dan Scobie, cut the ribbon to open the new home, accompanied by care home manager, Teresa Wilson, residents and guests.
The Mayor said: “I am very impressed with the facilities and positive atmosphere that is evident in this new home. Low Furlong has a long track record of providing care to elderly residents in Shipston and I’m delighted to see the home back up and running in its new guise.”
Care home manager, Teresa Wilson, said: “We were really pleased to see so many people attending our opening and wishing our residents and our team well.”
The residents of Low Furlong will continue to be supported by the League of Friends of Shipston Hospitals, many of whom have returned to the home having moved out temporarily while the building works were completed.
