Open day at Mill House

Sir Geoffrey Clifton Brown MP and Local Radio presenter Peter Lewis joined colleagues, residents and members of the local community for a celebration open day commemorating the major refurbishment at Mill House Nursing Home in Chipping Campden.

Mill House Nursing Home who have won many awards in the last twelve months has recently undergone a major refurbishment resulting in a fresh new look for the bistro, reception, dining rooms, bedrooms and the activities/local community room.

The team at Mill House have plenty to be proud of, having won over 16 major national and local awards in 2019 for their care, hospitality, activities, food, and residents back to work project to name but a few whilst also being rated good by the CQC for the 2nd consecutive year.

Part of what makes the home so vibrant is that the team are always seeking to develop and improve their links in the local community, ensuring that residents feel very much valued and included in the day to day life of the village. They hope to extend this further during 2020, fully utilising the fabulous facilities that many who visited during the event say now have a ‘Wow’ factor.

Starting the year with gusto the team invited Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP to observe what Mill House offers the local community including free day care, regular interest clubs, intergenerational projects, wonderful hospitality and events all hosted in their beautifully refurbished Bistro, reception area, dining rooms and of course its activities/local community room.

The many guests enjoyed canapes and musical entertainment in the Bistro, others took a tour of the home whilst some chose to relax with a spa & pamper session and a glass of something nice.

Sir Geoffrey and guests learnt interesting facts about how Mill House is developing its dining experience and met a young local student who has built links with the home and its residents, hearing how this has benefited everyone involved.

Sir Geoffrey was remarked on his tour that Mill House was complimented by, “An incredible friendly diligent team, who know their roles and are genuinely interested in what they do.”

“The refurbished bedrooms were impressive, and it was wonderful to see that the Chef is 4-star trained and previously worked at a renowned local hotel and is relishing working in a care environment,” he added.

Sir Geoffrey continued in his praise for the home adding that Mill House offers the highest standards he has seen in any home he has visited, and that he felt it was extremely impressive that activities and every aspect of the home follows a ‘one home approach’ where everyone whatever their level of care needs is able to join in and experience every aspect of the home.

This was evidenced by two residents who beamed with joy when they discovered that their Husbands with the support of the team at Mill House had arranged a few Valentine’s surprises for them. Love was in the air as the ladies were invited to join their Husbands for a private dining experience including their very own butler service, champagne and flowers.

One of the ladies said, “I have been married 66 years and it’s the most romantic he has ever been. I suspect Mill House gave him a nudge, but it’s been the best Valentines I have ever had.”

The other lady commented,” It’s not just the lunch, I was whisked to the brand-new beauty salon, the staff did my hair, my nails, my make-up and even a pedicure, I’m glamorous from top to toe!”

All families, and locals who visited, several of whom had not been before , were surprised and delighted with what the home has to offer. Many commented on the new bedrooms and dining areas but by far the biggest wow factor was the stunning reception and bistro area.

The fact it is always stocked with home-made cakes, biscuits and goodies of course does help!

As he cut a celebratory cake, before departing, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP stated, “Campden is at the forefront of my constituency and it is wonderful to see a local care home business thriving.”

During the lively event, Local radio presenter Peter Lewis took the opportunity to speak with Billy one of Mill Houses’ student volunteers, understanding his involvement with the home and the benefits that provides. He was also joined Wendy Mill Houses’ Church volunteer and Barry one of the local performers who regularly visits to sing for residents.

Mill House Nursing Home in Chipping Campden provides the highest standard of residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 45 elderly residents in a friendly and supportive environment.
