A Melton Mowbray care home brought the local community together to help celebrate its first birthday in March.
The Amwell, an all-inclusive residential, nursing, dementia and respite care home in Asfordby Road, has proved very popular and has welcomed more than 50 residents since it opened its doors a year ago.
The care home invited members of the local community from Melton Mowbray to come down and enjoy a free slice of birthday cake.
The Amwell sits with its only private wooded area overlooking the River Eye and caught the attention of the media when it opened due to its superb facilities. The home includes a cinema, beauty spa, riverside bistro, a specialised gym, a beautiful landscaped courtyard garden, private dining and computer suite facilities.
The care home was officially opened by fitness celebrity Rosemary Conley CBE, and has 88 luxurious en-suite bedrooms across three floors. She described The Amwell as ‘phenomenal’ and like a ‘posh hotel’, saying it will ‘create a new level of luxury for care homes’.
Tracy, a representative from The Amwell, said: “We were delighted to celebrate our first birthday in Melton - it has been a fabulous first 12 months in the town and we feel we have really been welcomed and accepted by the local community which is fantastic. I also want to say a big thank you to all the staff for making our first year in Melton so successful.”
