AS part of a new dementia therapy programme, Jack Parkinson Court care home in Mablethorpe has 
received a brillant British makeover.

A traditional pub, classic tearoom and cinema are just some of the 
quintessential features that residents of the care home can now enjoy.

Run by the Orders of St John Care Trust, the new ‘Jubilee Street’ was officially opened last week.

The home provides residential and specialist dementia care for its 37 residents, and underwent the makeover to promote reminiscence as therapy and reduce the use of antipsychotic drugs.

Jack Parkinson Court home 
manager Rosemary Robinson said: “The new areas have been well 
received by everyone at the home and also inspired new therapy ideas.”
