Littleport Grange is a period residence, dating back to 1855, set within beautiful grounds. The Grange still retains some of its original Victorian features, however the building has undergone extensive refurbishment works and now provides excellent care facilities in a residential setting. In conjunction with Minster Care, we have constructed a new dementia facility within the grounds of Littleport Grange which offers care to existing residents of the home who develop dementia symptoms and need support, whilst also providing places for new residents with dementia needs.
Littleport Croft is a new 21-bed dementia facility, built in the grounds of our existing Littleport Grange care home in Cambridgeshire. It broadens the range of services provided on the Littleport site, benefiting both new and existing residents and their families.
Colin Farebrother, Operations Director at Littleport Grange, said:
“We saw an opportunity to add a vital service for the local community and to enhance the environment at Littleport for all the residents. We’ve used carefully designed landscaping to closely connect the two homes. The new outside space is a huge improvement on the previous hard landscaping, giving residents better access, a place to socialise and somewhere that is safe and well observed.”
Adding dementia services to Littleport helps to future proof the provision of care services in the community, at the same time as enhancing the quality of the buildings we own. The new home has seen a good fill rate since it opened in October 2018, reflecting Littleport’s reputation for providing exceptional care for residents.
