Kirkwood Court care home has benefitted from transformative refurbishment and upgrade programmeKirkwood Court care home in Kenton, Newcastle has benefitted from an exciting £270k refurbishment and upgrade resulting from a major investment programme launched by owners HC-One.

Residents of the 69-bed, lovely purpose-built care home are able to enjoy sustainable, modernised and enhanced living environments - including full decoration of reception area, dining area, lounges, corridors and WC facilities. New flooring has been laid across the lounges and dining area as well as new lighting fixtures.

This programme will benefit 221 HC-One homes, including Kirkwood Court, and forms part of HC-One’s mission to be the UK’s first choice care provider in the communities it serves. 

As the largest care home refurbishment programme in the UK, HC-One is transforming its homes for the benefit of the Residents and Colleagues who live and work in them, and for the local communities they serve. The upgrades mean that every HC-One home will be equipped to meet the needs of an ageing population with increasingly complex care needs – including dementia care needs.

The works at Kirkwood Court began in April 2022 and completed in August 2022– no Residents were adversely impacted by the works.

We’re really excited that the plans for Kirkwood Court Care Home has now been safely completed. We look forward to families and friends visiting the home and seeing the end result.”
