Anjulita Court in Bedford proved it was fit for royalty when Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex attended its official opening in January. The Countess unveiled official plaques and took a tour of the magnificent building, whose features include sensory and hydrotherapy rooms, a hairdressing salon and a lounge that doubles up as a cinema. Anjulita Court was built in partnership with the Bedfordshire-based Ibbett Trust.

As she toured the building, the Countess also spoke to a number of residents and their relatives.

Addressing the gathering, she noted how much praise she had heard for those who work at the home. She thanked the staff members and told them, “It is you who makes the difference.”

Chairman of the Ibbett Trust, Clifton Ibbett, said that the Countess had “charmed everyone”, adding, “[She] was even willing to share the contents of her handbag with one curious resident!

“I am very pleased that she acknowledged the great work staff and volunteers do – that is truly what makes these care homes special.”
