We are delighted to announce that Cygnet Care has undertaken its most significant challenge so far with the completely new redevelopment of The Dell Residential Home in Beccles. Robert Blackham explains: “This is a big step for what is a little company, but, as a team, this service competes with the larger corporate care providers.”
The Brand-new, purpose-built Dell House was officially opened on 22nd March by Elfrede Brambley-Crawshaw, Lord Mayor of Beccles. It is ready to accommodate 60 residents and has beautiful views over the Waveney Valley on one side and the playing fields of Sir John Leman High School on the other. The views are lovely and to be able to hear children playing and see them running around having fun is lovely.
Elena Stefan, Manager of Dell House.
Elena has been involved within the family organisation since 2016, starting at our sister home – Manor House. Elena was able to build up a wealth of experience in caring for elderly people, including residents with dementia. With recognition of her qualities and skills she was soon promoted to Senior Carer and subsequently Assistant Manager. Elena completed her Health and Social NVQ level 3 and is currently undertaking level 5 in Leadership and Management.
Elena is strongly supported by a senior team who all have the same passion for providing person-centred care. Elena is committed to providing a happy, homely and safe environment for our residents. She feels determined that, when coming to stay at Dell House, it becomes a life-enhancing experience.
Our facilities and services
When Completely redesigning Dell House, prize-winning architect Tom Ground has emphasised its stunning location with large, low down windows so the people can enjoy the views whether sitting or standing. The views from the first-floor terrace are particularly impressive. There has been a lot of thought put into the design of the home and Tom has created a beautiful home with a sublime palette of materials that will set it apart from the usual care home design.
Dell House is a lovely environment in which to live, built to focus on small group living with four distinct areas to provide levels of care suited to each resident.
Dell House has a cafe, cinema, activities rooms, wellness room, hair and beauty salon, family room and a large garden which includes walkways and raised beds in a gardening area. The family room can be booked for occasions such as birthdays and parties so that residents can enjoy more private special events with their friends and relatives.
