On Tuesday 11th May, His Worship The Mayor, Councillor Riaz unveiled a stone to commemorate the first Quantum Care Home for older people to be developed in both Luton and Bedfordshire. The ceremony was attended by the Mayor and his wife as well as children from Warden Hill Infant and Junior Schools and representatives of Luton Borough Council.
The home will provide much needed care for 70 older people in the Luton area and will provide residential, nursing and specialist dementia services.
The home will have a Best Friends Cafe which will enable people within the home, and also within the local community, to join together and share coffee, tea and cakes with friends and family. The aim is to create a centre of excellence in care for older people and a real community resource with links to local schools and places of worship already established. The home will open to residents in October.
