Manorcroft Care Home in Dewsbury has started a three year plan to redecorate the whole home, with the aim of creating a brighter, more modern space for its 40 residents. The project began two weeks ago, and the first area to be completed is the entrance hall where a new floor has been laid and the walls painted. The residents at Manorcroft are being consulted about how the redecoration will progress, including helping to choose colours and materials for the new and improved areas. Neil Booth, home manager at Manorcroft said: “The entrance hall looks really good and it makes a huge difference, it’s a lot more welcoming for visitors. Our residents are very happy with the improvements, and we are looking forward to redecorating the rest of the home with their involvement.” Next on the list is the stairs and the upstairs reception, which Manorcroft hope will be completed in the New Year. Manorcroft is a modern purpose-built property, situated in the leafy suburbs of Dewsbury. The home has 40 en-suite single rooms and four comfortable day rooms for residents to socialise.
