Residents and relatives have been able to enjoy a little bit of peace and quiet, as Kingswood Lodge Care Home in Wotton-under-Edge unveiled its new Relaxation Room.
Jana Vaskova, Home Manager, said: “The relaxation room was a project that began taking shape following on from a Resident and Relative meeting. It came about as part of the improvements we can continue to make in the home to help the well-being of the residents.
“Now that the relaxation room is finished, the residents are over the moon. They’re not the only ones. The Chiropodist loves the room, and uses it for his pamper sessions.

Residents and the care team have been busy bees at Doulton Court Care Home in Sutton-on-Sea.
The home has been undergoing some TLC recently as its been having it’s wooden windows and doors replaced.
Joyce Turner, Home Manager, said: “The workmen are doing a fantastic job, liaising with our carers to minimise the disruption to our residents. Within one week almost all of the windows are replaced and look fantastic. Our very own ‘Domestic Dave’ has been staying late each day to clean up and ensure the disturbance to the residents is minimal. We’d be totally lost without him. I want to thank the whole team for their continued help and support whilst the renovations have been going on. Go team Doulton Court!”
Whilst the windows were being replaced, the residents were taking part in their very own exercise class.
“The class is always a firm favourite with the residents,” explained Joyce. “It helps to keep them agile and is great fun. It’s definitely one activity on the calendar that the residents look forward too constantly.”
