Meadow Bank care home has benefitted from transformative refurbishment and upgrade programmeMeadow Bank care home in Bamber Bridge, Preston has benefitted from an exciting almost £700,000 refurbishment and upgrade resulting from a major investment programme launched by owners HC-One.

Residents of the 110-bed friendly care home are able to enjoy sustainable, modernised and enhanced living environments – including full redecoration of the hair salon, activities room, vintage café and cinema. The home has also seen a revamp of the kitchenettes and bathing facilities.

The refurbishment of the residential, nursing and dementia care home forms part of HC-One’s £54.5 million refurbishment and upgrade programme. This programme will benefit 221 HC-One homes, including Meadow Bank, 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 Meadow Bank began in March 2022 and completed in July 2022 – no Residents were impacted by the works.

In addition to the extensive refurbishment works, Meadow Bank is also enhancing the service it offers for people living with dementia to help support the ever-changing needs of people living with dementia in Preston and the wider Lancashire area.

Later this year, Sabrina House, a 20-bedded living environment at Meadow Bank, will deliver a new market-leading service, known as a Specialist Dementia Care Community, to ensure that people with complex emotional needs can be cared for appropriately in a dementia-friendly therapeutic setting by specialist care staff.

Tracey Yates, HC-One’s Area Director said: 

“We are committed to fostering an environment that really feels like home, and décor and facilities are an important part of this. We’re really excited that the plans for Meadow Bank Care Home have now been safely completed. We look forward to families and friends visiting the home and seeing the end result.”
