Lincoln nursing home gets £480k refurbishment

Residents at Altham Court Residential and Nursing Home in Lincoln will enjoy improved communal areas and premium bedrooms with flatscreen TVs after a £480,000 refurbishment.

The official completion ceremony was attended by The Right Worshipful the Mayor of Lincoln, Brent Charlesworth, and the Mayoress of Lincoln, Kath Brothwell, on November 29.

The dignitaries joined residents and staff at the Bupa-run nursing home in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the opening of revamped communal areas and new bedrooms, following a half a million pound investment.

The investment also includes a newly refurbished lounge, where residents can get together to enjoy clubs and activities including exercise, crafts and music.

A selection of premium bedrooms are also now available which offer ensuite wet rooms and 32” flat screen televisions.

The nursing home, which is located on Altham Terrace, has also benefited from new furniture and decoration throughout after work on the refurbishment began in June.

Altham Court Residential and Nursing Home is a purpose-built 47-bed home that provides residential and nursing accommodation for Lincoln residents, including specialist palliative and respite services.

The facility also provides care for young and physically disabled residents. In keeping with Bupa’s commitment to providing high-quality personal care, qualified nurses are available 24 hours a day.

Manager of Altham Court Residential and Nursing Home, Tracy Johnston said: “It was great to see so many positive reactions to the refurbishment from residents and staff alike on Saturday, and we’re grateful to the Mayor of Lincoln, Brent Charlesworth, and Mayoress of Lincoln, Kath Brothwell, for attending. We’re looking forward to seeing our residents enjoy the new facilities.”
