  • MMCG building £13.5m care home in Biddenham

    Bentley Grange, set to be opened in March 2024 by the Maria Mallaband Care Group, will provide a luxurious living environment with 60 en-suite bedrooms across 3 floors, multiple lounges, restaurants, communal areas and social spaces.

    Located in Biddenham, the brand new three-storey home will feature a number of outstanding facilities such as a cinema, wellness suite, beauty salon, rooftop bar and terrace.

    The home will also have landscaped grounds, with both private and shared patios and quiet terraces, with planting to encourage bees, butterflies and other wildlife to visit.   With several rooms such as the Drawing Room and Garden Lounge offering direct access to these outdoor space, fresh air and nature will be a feature of everyday life in the home.

    Annelli Chatfield, Group Commissioning Manager at Maria Mallaband Care Group said: “Bentley Grange will offer an elegant environment and a personalised care experience, where people can continue to live both full and rewarding lives, maintaining their independence and pursuing their interests.

    “We are looking forward to making this home spectacular with an incredible care team and a lifestyle offering that will enhance every day.”

    Bentley Grange is the latest home to be developed by the Maria Mallaband Care Group, which has over 80 care homes across the country. This project comes with many high expectations after the success of their other recently opened homes, Chartwell Manor, located in Aylesbury and Lace Hill Manor, in Buckingham, reflecting the demand for high quality care.

    These purpose-built homes have created over 200 jobs locally and have continued to build on their commitment to supporting their local communities. Lace Hill Manor was also recognised for its outstanding development and design being named among the finalists in the Pinders HealthcareDesign Awards 2023.

    Chatfield added: “We are excited to become part of the Biddenham community and meet the demand for exceptional care in this area. The village is surrounded by many local amenities and close to a bustling market town. There are also several local schools nearby, which ties in well with our intergenerational activities programme.”

    The new private care home, designed for dementia, residential and nursing care, is under construction by contractor Lawrence Baker Ltd. The interiors are being designed by Rebecca Hunter of Rebecca Hartley Interiors, who works exclusively with MMCG and has also designed other MMCG care homes including Chartwell Manor and Claremont Manor in Devon.

    Not only will this new luxury care home be the first of its kind to open in the Biddenham area and respond to the need for more choice in social care within the community, but it will also be creating jobs for local carers, qualified nurses, administrators, hospitality professionals and more.
