A picture of Care home’s grand opening in Pensby

A new residential dementia care home in Pensby has been officially opened by Sanctuary Care.

Ridgewood Court Residential Care Home, which features 60 en-suite bedrooms, was declared open by its very first resident Vera Grant, along with the Deputy Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Geoffrey Watt.

They were joined at the official opening by guests who were given a guided tour of the home to see the facilities available including a hairdressing and beauty salon, boutique shop, cinema room and on-site café.

Speaking about cutting the ribbon at the event, Vera, who has a floor at the home named after her, said: “I felt flattered to be asked and the staff here at Ridgewood made it a very special day.

"I am very happy at the home - it was a big move but the staff have made me feel very welcome and made my first day extra special.”

Councillor Geoffrey Watt commented: ‘The Deputy Mayoress and I were delighted to be invited to the opening of Ridgewood Court Residential Care Home in Pensby, to meet some of the first residents and be shown around by the manager, staff and directors from Sanctuary Care. We were really impressed by the design of the building and the facilities it offers, which we are certain will be appreciated by residents and their families for many years to come.”

Chris Poole, Sanctuary Care’s Director of Business Development, added: “It was an honour to meet our residents, who have settled into their new home so quickly, as well as the fantastic team. The occasion was extra special because Ridgewood Court is the first home that we have opened this year and will be a real asset to the local community.”
