Windsar Care, a care provider specialising in supporting people living with dementia, has been appointed to manage the residential service within the new Bracknell Forest Heathlands development when it opens early this year.

The appointment follows a competitive tendering process and will see Windsar Care offering personalised care to people suffering with dementia. The support will be tailored to the individuals’ needs, interests and wishes and delivered by fully trained and dedicated professionals, in a safe, relaxed and secure environment.

The 66-bed specialist care facility is anticipated to be fully operational in early 2022. Windsar Care will manage 46-beds to provide care for people living with dementia. A further 20-bed intermediate care unit will be operated by Frimley Health Foundation Trust for people transitioning from hospital to their home, or who may benefit from a short stay to prevent them from being admitted to hospital. 

Dale Birch, Executive Member for Adult Services, Health and Housing, said:

“I am very pleased that we will be welcoming Windsar Care to Heathlands Care Home when it opens. Bracknell Forest Council is a caring council, and the support and attention Windsar Care provides will ensure residents diagnosed with dementia will receive the specialist care and attention they need in a safe, clean and professional environment.”

Mulkraj Ram, Operations Manager at Windsar Care, said:

“We are delighted to have been appointed to provide our specialist care services at Heathlands Care Home. We understand it’s not just about providing physical care to people, but also supporting them to get the best from their lives.

“To achieve this, we employ highly skilled and knowledgeable professionals to ensure exceptionally high standards of care are delivered in a friendly manner. To ensure familiarity and consistency of care, each person living with us at Heathlands will have a dedicated member of staff as their key worker to assist them in developing and maintaining their social interests and engaging in meaningful activities.”

Fiona Slevin-Brown, Frimley Clinical Commissioning Group’s Executive Managing Director for Bracknell Forest, said:

“Heathlands will further enable the council and the local NHS to provide a full range of enhanced care and support for our community.”  

The re-development of Heathlands Care Home has been made possible through a partnership with Bracknell Forest Council and Frimley CCG.
