A Stanton-by-Dale nursing home has almost tripled the space it dedicates to the care of younger adults with a new wing, which opened this week.
The Crompton Suite was officially opened at Stanton Hall Nursing Home by Mayor of Erewash Cllr Val Clare on Thursday (October 31).
It has eight bedrooms and is specifically for adults aged 18 and over with physical disabilities and lifestyle limiting conditions.
Corrine White from Alfreton-based MPS Care, which owns the home in Main Street, said: “Hopefully it will encourage people that need respite care to use our home.
“It’s been completely refurbished to make it look more like a hotel, which we hope will be inviting to younger residents.”
The wing cost an undisclosed amount but is said to be ‘thousands of pounds’.
Before the new wing was opened the home was mostly dedicated to the care of older residents, apart from the Stanhope Unit, which housed five younger adults.
The historic Stanton Hall, which hosts the village’s annual pancake race every year on its front drive, has been a nursing home for about 30 years, Corrine explained.
MPS Care runs 14 homes across the UK.
