Care provider Quantum Care and its partners Hertfordshire County Council opened the Panshanger home, called Anson Court, on Thursday, November 16.

Forty residents that were in Quantum Care’s Welwyn Garden City Hyde Valley House were moved into Anson Court along with new residents.

The home, which offers residential, dementia, respite and day care, is named after the Avro Anson aircraft that was regularly flown out of Panshanger airfield in the 1930s.

The day care centre is also for people still living in the community that require some additional support to assist them through the day.

They will then have the chance to interact with others and enjoy activities that are tailored to their individual needs.

Deputy mayor of Welwyn Hatfield, councillor Barbara Fitzsimon, said: “It’s refreshing to see that new care homes of today are designed with a purpose and that purpose is to be part of the community in which they are built.

“Some might even say they are becoming ‘community hubs’ for care and support, offering advice, information, and other services to local carers and people living in the community.”

If you would like to make an enquiry about the new home call 01707 379700.
