Bowbrook officially opens Marigold House

Marigold House

Bowbrook, our state-of-the-art dementia-specialist residential care home, has recently opened a new accommodation block with a special event to mark the occasion.

Located just outside of Lichfield, Bowbrook provides first-class facilities for people living with dementia and complex needs.

The new accommodation at Bowbrook, known as Marigold House contains 15 ensuite bedrooms which are suitable for couples and individuals over 55. In keeping with the other houses at Bowbrook, Marigold has a communal kitchen diner, cinema room, lounge and access to outdoor space.

Lucie Willday, our Registered Manager at Bowbrook, said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Cllr Mike Willcox and members of the local community to Bowbrook recently.

“My colleagues and I were proud to show our guests around our new household where our customers can enjoy a wide range of activities, industry-leading facilities all in a tranquil setting. We look forward to welcoming more customers to Bowbrook now that Marigold House is open.”

Cllr Mike Wilcox, who represents Lichfield Burntwood South division on Staffordshire County Council was invited to officially open the Marigold household.

Cllr Wilcox said: “It was a real pleasure to visit Marigold House at Bowbrook. The facilities are excellent, and the staff are dedicated. Bowbrook is a real asset to have in our county.”

During his visit Cllr Wilcox had the opportunity to take a tour of the new accommodation, meet members of the care team and sample a selection of items from the menu at Bowbrook.

The tasters were provided courtesy of apetito, a major catering supplier to the UK care sector and NHS, who provide a rotating menu of hot and cold food items at Bowbrook.

Richard Woodward, General Manager at apetito Care Homes, said: “We are delighted to be a part of Bowbrook’s journey in enhancing the quality of life for its residents. At apetito, we understand the importance of nutritious and delicious meals in promoting wellbeing, especially for individuals with dementia and complex needs.

“Our partnership with Bowbrook reflects our commitment to delivering high-quality, tailored meals that meet the diverse dietary needs of residents. It was an honour for apetito to contribute to the opening of Marigold House and see the positive impact our meals have on the residents’ daily lives.”

Bowbrook is based in Fradley, a village just three miles from the famous cathedral city of Lichfield and a short drive from Burton-upon-Trent and Tamworth.
