HRH Princess Michael of Kent opens latest Trust home

The rain held off as HRH Princess Michael arrived to open the OSJCT’s 79th care centre, Jubilee Lodge, in Bourton-on-the-Water.  Excited residents lined up to greet the Princess, as Chairman of the Trust, Peter Loyd and General Manager, Ruth Baggs, took her on a tour of the home. 

Jubilee Lodge will provide dementia, nursing and intermediate care for 74 residents.  All its bedrooms are for single occupancy and have been designed with en suite facilities. The Trust’s innovative dementia care programme at the Home, led by an Admiral Nurse*, focuses on the latest approach to palliative care and creation of personalised surroundings, with the treatment providing clear benefits for the residents.

*Admiral Nurses are trained mental health nurses specialising in dementia. They work with family carers and people with dementia to improve their quality of life.
