From April 1, 2012, Optalis will take over the management of four care homes in Berkshire after being awarded a contract by Wokingham Borough Council. The homes are currently managed by Atlas Project Team Ltd.
Linda Robson, Operational Team Manager at Optalis, recently organised a very successful Christmas raffle, which raised £210 for Wheels of Experience, a charity based in nearby Aldershot, Hampshire. The charity raises money to buy wheelchair-accessible motorhomes for disabled children.
Alexandra Place in Wokingham provides 46 one-bedroom apartments and 18 two-bedroom apartments, including ten apartments for people with dementia. The comfortable homes and facilities enable older people to live independently for as long as possible where they can surround themselves with their own belongings.
Optalis, which is wholly council-owned, has today taken control of all the borough council’s adult social care provided services. This includes day centres, employment services, home care, residential care and supported housing services, as well as brokerage and support and sensory needs services.
