Taking care of business
Linear Park Care Home specialises in dementia care, and has been designed in a unique figure eight layout. It was created to avoid blind-ending corridors that can cause confusion and upset to residents with memory impairments.
The 31-bedroom building, run by husband and wife team Andy and Shirley Murray, had formerly been a standard residential care home, but with the support of Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, has been upgraded by the owners to specifically cater for the elderly and mentally infirm.
Having had to put my own mother into care several years ago I was determined to provide something for everyone that I felt would be good enough for her.
Andy Murray, Director of Linear Park Care Home
