The Worshipful the Mayor of Bracknell Forest Councillor Ash Merry officially opened the Information and Recruitment Suite at Buckler’s Lodge, a new care home in Crowthorne, on Friday 26th November.

The suite is open to the public should they wish to see the home and discuss care options or careers: the home will offer over 100 jobs to the local community and beyond.

Mayor Councillor Merry visited the home, accompanied by Mayoress Councillor Isabel Mattick, and did the honours of cutting the ceremonial ribbon indicating the opening of the Information and Recruitment Suite.

Mayor Councillor Merry said the following of the event:

“It’s such a pleasure to come here today and to open the Information and Recruitment Suite here at Buckler’s Lodge. I think it’s a matter very close to my Mayoress, Isabel’s heart and mine, we both have close family who had dementia.

This is such a fantastic facility for families and the people who will be residents here, and not to forget that it will provide great opportunities for 100 people locally to find employment and to really forge a career in such an important sector as care.”

Buckler’s Lodge intends to become a pillar of the local community, extending the hand of friendship and creating lasting relationships with local schools, businesses, and individuals.

The purpose-built care home, operated by Greensleeves Care, is set to open in January 2022, and will offer person-centred residential and dementia care for up to 80 older people.
