The Mayor of St Neots, Cllr Derek Giles, visited Nelson Lodge care home on Thursday 16 March, for an open day attended by over 100 local health care professionals.
Nelson Lodge opened its doors to doctors and health care commissioners on Thursday 16 March, so people can find out more about the new home. The Mayor and visitors were able to experience all that life at Nelson Lodge has to offer and enjoyed a tour of the site.
Jane Trimarco, Nelson Lodge care home manager said; “We’re holding this open day so that people can have a look round and see how great Nelson Lodge will be once it’s open. This is a proud moment for Anchor and a key milestone in what will be a fantastic new care home. We are looking forward to welcoming residents and becoming a part of the local community.”
A further open day was held on Sunday 19 March, where members of the public were welcomed into our brand new home for the very first time.
The Mayor of St Neots, Cllr Derek Giles, said: “Nelson Lodge is a wonderful new care home and will provide a valuable service to our community in St Neots.”
