Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps has officially opened a new luxury care home in Welwyn Garden City.

Mr Shapps unveiled Oakview Lodge Care Home, based in Howalands, before being given a tour of the facility, which includes a hair salon, relaxation spa, pub and cinema room.

“This is really a fantastic addition to our community in Welwyn Hatfield,” the Tory MP said.

“We are going to need a lot more care over the next few years. By 2025, there will be a million people with dementia in this country, so it is very important we have this quality of care.”

The facility is owned and operated by Country Court Care, and its chief executive Abdul Kachra was also at the unveiling.

Managing director Alykhan Kachra said it was “an absolute pleasure” to show Mr Shapps how it is hoping to shape family-led care in the area.

He added: “We look forward to welcoming Grant back again in the future once Oakview Lodge has had a chance to embed itself into the local community.”
