Sandycroft Care Home, Blackpool
Sandycroft was an existing care facility in Blackpool, which was purchased by the developer to improve the level of care facilities on offer. The home now provides dedicated care and support tailored to residents’ needs and is fully managed by an experienced nursing team.
Sandycroft caters for up to a maximum 26 people who live with dementia and during the last CQC inspection (February 2016), there were 24 inhabitants and the home was an awarded an overall ‘good’. Renovations at Sandycroft have been taking place over the course of the year, in a phased approach, in order to minimise disruption to residents. The final phase of improvements will commence in September 2016.
Well-recognised for providing high quality care, Sandycroft was the first home in Blackpool to be awarded the Gold Standard Framework End-of-Life Award for exceptional end-of-life and palliative care - an award which has been retained to this day.

Since completion, Gilwood Lodge has undergone extensive redevelopment and renovation, and now proudly offers the latest in comfort, technological and sensory features. The state-of-the-art facility now provides dementia care for those living across Blackpool and Lancashire.

Following the refurbishment, Gilwood Lodge was inspected by the CQC and received an overall ‘good’ rating. The facility is now fully subscribed, with more residents on the waiting list.
