Greensleeves Care is proud to announce it has reached its “silver goal” with the opening of its 25th care home in the historic town of Ely in Cambridgeshire. The Orchards, a state-of-the-art care home, will provide the highest quality residential and dementia care to the local community in Ely and the surrounding villages.

The 66-bed brand new care home features a number of facilities including a resident’s cinema, a physiotherapy room, several comfortable lounges, a library, family room, coffee bar, sky bar, landscaped gardens and generous parking. Residential care and specialist dementia care will be provided in separate parts of the home for the benefit of residents.

Greensleeves Care is one of the most respected care charities in the United Kingdom.  The charity has been providing award-winning, 24-hour care and support to older people across England for over 20 years.

Greensleeves Care has maintained a number of principles over its history, from which it has never wavered. The staff never forget they are guests in the residents’ home and they consider ourselves privileged to share those homes with them. Everyone at Greensleeves lives by this ethos. It empowers the residents to influence and drive the decisions that impact their lives.

Samantha Curran, Home Manager at The Orchards, said: “I am excited that we have now received the keys to The Orchards. The home looks elegant and has been designed and furnished to the highest specifications. My team and I look forward to settling in at the care home and welcoming new residents who I am sure will be as impressed with their new home as I am.”

Paul Newman, Chief Executive at Greensleeves Care, said: “Greensleeves Care is already active in Cambridgeshire and the East of England area. We look forward to introducing our award-winning care and support for older people in the Ely area. As well as caring for 66 residents, we plan to play an active role in the local economy, creating over 100 new jobs, welcoming a variety of local volunteer groups and charities to the home and supporting the local community with dementia cafes“.
