A recently refurbished care home in Inverness has held an official opening event to give guests a first glimpse of its new facilities and an opportunity to meet its care team.
Culduthel Care Home was acquired by Meallmore last April and the leading care provider has now fully transformed the care home to significantly enhance its offering for residents.
Special guest Provost of Inverness Helen Carmichael joined residents, staff and guests for the celebrations, gave a speech and unveiled a commemorative plaque to mark the occasion.
A number of activities were also offered throughout the day, including music from local piper Aiden Ross and The City Jazz Quartet and plenty of canapes and fizz.
Provost Helen Carmichael said: “It was a pleasure to officially open Culduthel Care Home which Mealmore Ltd has acquired and refurbished in Inverness.
“It was fantastic to meet the owners and residents and to hear their many stories while being shown around the beautiful accommodation.”
Following the revamp, Culduthel Care Home has 62 fully furnished en-suite bedrooms and six luxurious living/dining areas, as well as a cinema, two café areas and a hairdressing and beauty salon for a spot of pampering.
Anne Mawdsley, Highland Area Manager at Meallmore, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase the excellent facilities we now have on offer at Culduthel and the fantastic work that takes place at the care home.
“All the residents, families and staff are over the moon with the way it has been completely transformed. It was a great day and we would like to say a big thank you to everyone for joining us to celebrate and especially to the Provost for making a speech.
“At Culduthel, we are committed to delivering the highest quality in person-centred care and providing social activities and entertainment is just one of the many ways in which we strive to do this.”
