He said: “I want the residents to get the a better value of life and staff get a better working environment.”

The care home has also received plenty of supplies of personal protective equipment for its 18 members of staff.

In addition to the resident’s bedrooms there is an orangery where residents will be able to take part in activities such as arts and crafts.
