Shropshire nursing home launches 24-bed extension with some Strictly sparkle

Residents and staff at Isle Court Nursing Home celebrated the launch of its beautifully designed, new extension in ‘Strictly Style’ with a sparkling display by professional dancers.

Talented duo Chloe Hewitt of Strictly Come Dancing and Curtis Pritchard from Dancing with the Stars Ireland performed at Morris Care’s Isle Court Nursing Home in Bicton, Shrewsbury on Monday 15th October and won the hearts of residents and families who scored them a sensational 10.

The afternoon entertainment was hosted to officially open the extension which has provided an additional 24 en-suite bedrooms, two sensory Spa Rooms, with specialist massage bathing systems, and a Morris Café for residents to enjoy afternoon tea with friends and family. The new facilities fit sympathetically with the bright and welcoming feel of the Home, enhancing what is already one of the most sought-after nursing homes in the county and bringing much needed additional care to the area.  

Social Life Coordinator, Debbie Rees said: “We have many Strictly fans here as the show is so popular. It was fantastic to see the skills of these amazing dancers transfer from the TV screen to right here in our Home.

“Chloe and Curtis delighted everyone with their moving performance and were warm and friendly when they chatted to residents and joined them for refreshments and photographs. It was such a memorable way to launch our new facilities which will further enhance the quality of specialist care we offer.”

Morris Care has continually grown as a provider of high quality, expert care in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Cheshire, and has called upon its 30 years’ experience and extensive research into care for this investment at Isle Court.

The ‘Forget Me Not’ area, designed specifically for those living with dementia, has been re-developed and provides residents with a safe environment with everything designed to help them feel comfortable and reassured. It also features a secure, peaceful garden area with themed areas aimed at stimulating fond memories.

Isle Court Home Manager Claire Smith, said: “We are delighted to now be able to offer our specialist care and support to more residents within this community. The new extension fits seamlessly onto our existing building and brings with it some wonderful new facilities such as the Spa Rooms which provide such a positive and sensory bathing experience which we know our residents so enjoy. 

“I am very much looking forward to welcoming potential new residents and their families to look around the Home with a view to becoming a part of our family here at Isle Court.”
