Oak Manor

Oak Manor, a brand new MHA care home on Harvest Rise off Ivel Road in Shefford, celebrated its grand opening for the official launch of the new facility on 23rd November. Special guests in attendance included the Mayor of Shefford, as well as other public figures from the community.

Building at MHA Oak Manor is now complete and the home is ready to open its doors to 64 new residents. It will be providing residential and dementia care to people in Shefford and the surrounding area.

The pinnacle of the launch was the ribbon-cutting ceremony led by Mayor Paul Mackin.

MHA’s new care home has created over 70 new jobs for people in the local area, with experienced care professional Sharon Hipper heading the team as the newly appointed home manager for Oak Manor.

Oak Manor home manager Sharon said: “We were thrilled to finally open the doors and welcome the local community to our official launch party. The event was a huge success and to see so many faces mingling in our new facility was wonderful. It truly felt like the whole of Shefford was here.

“A huge thank you goes to the Mayor for helping us to mark the occasion with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony. Of course, the most important thing for us is that we’re now able to welcome our lovely new residents and get them settled into their new home just in time for Christmas.”  

As part of national charity MHA, Oak Manor is still on the lookout for volunteers for a variety of roles.
