Ben Parkinson set to officially open Doncaster’s newest care home

Special guest and local hero, Ben Parkinson MBE, will officially be opening Liberty House in Cantley, Doncaster, by cutting the red ribbon at 1pm this Saturday, 11 September 2020.

Liberty House, the latest purpose-built care home in Doncaster developed by leading residential care provider, Runwood Homes, consists of two floors of impressive, specious and well thought out bedroom suites and shared spaces for people over 65 years of age to enjoy.

Ben kindly agreed to cutting the ribbon at the home in Goodison Boulevard to mark the official opening, where the small number of attendees will be adhering to current government guidelines to protect against the spread of coronavirus.

Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson is inspirational figure, particularly known in his home town of Doncaster. Ben has endured and overcome such difficult times; he lost both of his legs and suffered brain damage and more than 40 injuries in a bomb attack in Afghanistan in 2006 as a paratrooper. After a journey of recovery, Ben is now best known for embarking on incredible expeditions raising money for charity.

Home Manager, Kathleen George, commented, “We’re thrilled that Ben has agreed to officially open Liberty House and support this new residential care service for people in our local and wider community. During these times, a large open day was not possible, though anyone interested in Liberty House can take a look around via our virtual tour on the Runwood Homes website. We’re very proud of our new home and residents have already begun to settle in and enjoy the modern facilities available.”

Catering to those over the age of 65, including those living with dementia, the home comprises of a team of experienced and professional carers who are highly trained to both encourage independence, promote choice and offer a discreet, personalised care service around the clock. What’s more, the home benefits from it’s own Wellbeing Lead, responsible for activity and meaningful engagement.

With capacity for 81 residents, those moving into Liberty House can expect to enjoy spending quality time in the various shared social spaces such as a bar, café, bistro style restaurant, salon, activity room and bespoke home cinema, plus two outdoor living areas, all of which encourage living life to the full.
