Continuous investment

We recently created two new rooms at Longlands as part of a continuous investment programme aimed at further improving the experience for residents.

We have taken a former communal area and transformed it into a spacious new bedroom which comes complete with its own adjoining garden room.

In addition, a smaller bedroom has been converted into a comfortable communal area and visitor pod which we can use as part of any future Covid-19 restrictions, or anything else which may impact on our ability to allow residents’ families into the home in the future, although this is entirely a precautionary measure.

The new rooms follow the recent replacement of all the windows at our 43-bedroom home, which represented an investment of £35,000. A new conservatory and door replacement programme are also planned.

Tina Kendall, Manager of Longlands, said: “We couldn’t be happier with the new bedroom; it would be an understatement to say it wouldn’t look out of place in a five-star hotel.

“It’s been decorated to a high standard and with its own, private garden room, it’s easily the biggest room in the home and we expect it to be in high demand once people view it.

“We’re also pleased to have been able to create a new communal room for residents which can also be used as a visitor pod which residents’ families can access via the main garden.

“With Covid-19 restrictions being lifted, we’re hoping to be able to welcome families back into the home on a full-time basis soon, but the pod will enable us to continue visits in a safe, secure manner.

“It also means we have future-proofed the home for anything unexpected which may affect visiting in the future, although we obviously hope that this doesn’t happen after everything we have experienced over the past few years. “With the recent and planned investments, we’re definitely looking to the future as we strive to make Longlands the number one choice for people seeing residential care in Middlesbrough for themselves or their loved ones.”
