Local School Students Name Suites at New Waterhouse Manor Care Home

In a delightful collaboration with the community, students from Hampton Lakes Primary School have named three suites at the new state-of-the-art care home, Waterhouse Manor, in Peterborough.

As Waterhouse Manor Care Home, located in Hampton Gardens and part of the Avery Healthcare Group, prepares to welcome its first residents this summer, the involvement of local children has added a personal and meaningful touch to the home’s new beginning.

Earlier this year, Natalie Maxwell, Home Manager at Waterhouse Manor Care Home, visited Hampton Lakes Primary School to hold an engaging assembly about care homes.

Natalie invited the students to participate in a competition to name the home’s three new suites. The students enthusiastically came up with creative names: “The Meadows,” reflecting the company name and the surrounding areas of Peterborough; “The Lily Pad,” inspired by the nearby lake; and “The Waterfalls,” symbolising the serene beauty of lakes.

To thank the students for their creativity and participation, Waterhouse Manor Care Home presented the school with a cheque for £250.

“We wanted the children of Hampton Lakes Primary School to name our floors because we love involving our local community,” said Natalie. “As our closest neighbours, this is a wonderful way to build a positive relationship between the young and older generations.”

Natalie added, “It was lovely to meet the children and see their excitement about naming our suites. Hampton Lakes Primary School will play a big role at Waterhouse Manor Care Home, and it’s heartwarming to talk to our residents about the children’s involvement. ”

Miss Trigg, Head of School at Hampton Lakes Primary School said, “We were delighted to welcome our new neighbours from Waterhouse Manor Care Home as they delivered a whole school assembly to share the results of the Suite Naming Competition.”

“I was immensely proud of the names the children came up with as they really resonate with the surroundings of our local area, and this has created a legacy for our community.”

Azariah, Year 5 said, “It was really nice for our neighbours to let us name the floors for the care home. We hope that we will be able to get to know our neighbours more and maybe even perform for them. ”

Waterhouse Manor Care Home is the latest addition to the Avery portfolio, joining the 98 care homes currently open nationwide.

Scheduled to open its doors in August, the new build care home will feature 80 spacious and luxurious bedrooms over three floors, along with a variety of facilities such as a hair salon, cinema, café, outdoor terrace, companion rooms, private dining, and beautiful landscaped gardens for residents to enjoy.

The dedicated team at Waterhouse Manor Care Home is committed to providing unparalleled residential, respite, and dementia care to residents across Peterborough.

With this new addition, Avery Healthcare continues to solidify its position as a leader in the adult care sector, setting a new standard for excellence. The company is on track to deliver six new care homes across the UK by spring 2025.

The grand opening of Waterhouse Manor will take place this August. For the latest updates and events happening across Avery and their homes, visit
