Plans to significantly improve a local care home service for the elderly and those living with dementia are underway, following the recent acquisition of a care home in Inverness.

Meallmore Ltd acquired Mandaville Care Home in April, which has now been renamed as Culduthel Care Home.

The leading care provider is supporting its staff team, many of whom transferred at the time of acquisition, to develop high quality standards across the home. An extensive refurbishment programme is also being undertaken to improve the facilities available to the residents.

Following the revamp, the home will offer updated bedroom suites and multiple, luxurious living areas, as well as a cinema where residents can view the latest blockbusters, a café for sharing a cuppa and a bite to eat with family and friends and a hairdressing salon for a spot of pampering.

The acquisition comes during a special anniversary year for the company. Gerry Hennessey, managing director of Meallmore Ltd, said: “Acquiring Culduthel Care Home this year feels very fitting, as the Highlands was where it all began for us 30 years ago.

“In 30 years of trading, the sector has changed significantly. Nevertheless, throughout this time, we have consistently aimed to deliver exceptional standards of care to the elderly and frail.

“It is this high quality of care that we have come to be recognised for that we will bring to Culduthel Care Home. We’re now very much looking forward to seeing the community here grow and to transforming the home into a fantastic place to both live and work.”

The refurbishment programme is currently underway and is expected to be complete by Summer 2018.
