Welcome to Middlefields House Welcome to Middlefields House, a brand-new state of the art residential care home opening in 2021 that will provide high quality, personalised care for 48 residents aged 65 and over, including those with dementia. The new home will be made up of four households of 12 residents with communal spaces and beautiful gardens to help ensure that residents are able to live fulfilled life in their later years. Find out more about Middlefields House, how you can pray for the project or how you can give towards the new building. Middlefields House is just the beginning of the Pilgrims' Friend Society Renewal Programme which will see six new care homes built over the next 10 years.

The project has progressed remarkably well and the time lost due to coronavirus issues has now been caught up. Progress continues to be good with the majority of the masonry completed and work started on the windows. Plans for August include erection of roof trusses and work inside to prepare for electrical installations. First floor nearing completion How the household model works during coronavirus The current coronavirus pandemic has highlighted some of the benefits of the design that Middlefields House is being built to. The four “households” of twelve rooms can operate virtually independently and so, in the circumstances of an outbreak, each household forms its own ‘bubble’. Residents would be isolated in their rooms, as is usual practice, but the risk of spreading the virus throughout the home is much reduced. As each household will have its own communal areas and other facilities, it should be possible to isolate one household without having to put the whole home into isolation. The building is designed so that neither food nor laundry must pass through one household to reach another and visitors, contractors and staff will be much less likely to move between households, minimising the risk of cross-contamination.We give thanks to God that He has led us to adopt this model of care home design at Middlefields House.
