THE Mayor of Droitwich has officially opened a new luxury care home in the town.

Cllr William Moy and his consort, Dilys Moy joined the care team and the local community at the official open day event at Woodland View, situated on Woodland Way in Droitwich Spa.

The care home includes a plush cinema room, lavish Sky Bar with far-reaching views, a vintage tearoom complete with balcony area, hairdressing salon and airy botanical garden rooms leading onto spacious landscaped gardens.

Earlier this year, the Mayor visited the development during the final phase of construction to plant the first tree in the homes grounds during the official topping out ceremony. This ancient ritual seeks to appraise the tree dwelling spirits which may have been disturbed during the build.

Cllr Moy was interested to hear about the care teams’ commitment to combatting loneliness in local older people, as home manager, Cindy Hawkins, explained how the dedicated activity co-ordinators will provide varied activities through a packed social calendar that is tailored to each resident's interests and hobbies.

Cllr Moys said: "On behalf of myself and my wife, I would like to thank everyone at Woodland View very much for the lovely welcome to such a fantastic care home. I was thrilled to take a tour around the facilities and very proud to be able to plant a commemorative tree, I wish the whole team luck as you begin to welcome new residents."

Cindy Hawkins, said: "It has been wonderful having the Mayor visit our beautiful home and to be able to discuss some of our key initiatives around the person-centred lifestyle delivered at Woodland View.

"Our open day event was a fantastic way to meet people within the local community and we had such an overwhelming response so far from local people. I can’t wait to support our new residents to live life to the full as part of the Woodland View community!"

Woodland View is care provider, Ideal Carehomes, 27th development and has benefitted from a £12m investment.

It is a residential and dementia care home and is now welcoming new residents for short and long term placements.
