Official opening of the information suite at the new Beaufort Grange care home.

The Rt Hon Lord Mayor of Bristol, Cllr Peter Main, alongside the Chair of South Gloucestershire Council, Cllr Janet Biggin, caught a glimpse of the new care home under construction in Cheswick Village today (Wednesday 10th April) during an opening ceremony attended by local healthcare professionals and neighbours.

The Mayor took a tour of the new information suite and cut the ribbon to officially open it with the help of Alexandra Crew, General Manager of the newly named Beaufort Grange care home.

The 74-bed home is situated within Cheswick Village, a new development in North Bristol on the border of Stoke Gifford and Lockleaze, and is now open from 9am to 6pm weekdays and from 10am to 4pm at weekends.

The home’s surroundings and services will accommodate people requiring different types of care, including residential, nursing and dedicated dementia care.

The information suite was fitted out by an in-house expert interior design team and gives the local community an opportunity to see what the finished care home will look like when it opens this summer. It features examples of two homely bedrooms, a dining area and a living room all designed with future residents in mind. The home will be finished to a high specification with luxury fixtures and fittings throughout and each bedroom will have full en-suite facilities.

Funding secured for new care home at Cheswick Village

Posted on Wednesday 25th July 2012 at 6:50 pm by SH (Editor)

Proposed care home at Cheswick Village, Bristol.

MedicX Healthfund, the UK healthcare property investment fund, has announced that it has agreed to fund the construction of a new 74-bed care home at Cheswick Village, North Bristol.

The property is being developed by Castleoak, a specialist care development, design and build group. Work has started on site and at practical completion, a 35-year lease will be granted to Barchester Healthcare. The high specification, premium care home is arranged over three floors and will provide quality personal and nursing care for older people, including those with dementia.

Cheswick Village is a new community of approximately 1,400 residential units, located on land formerly known as Wallscourt Farm, south of the University of the West of England (UWE).

The new neighbourhood, which is being developed in seven phases, is due to be completed in 2015. Once finished, it will incorporate a new primary school and a new local centre containing a convenience store, a GP surgery, a nursery and a gym.

The new care home forms part of the Aurora Spring phase, which is located south of Long Down Avenue, within the City of Bristol boundary.

Mike Parsons, Founder and Chief Executive, Barchester, said:

“We are very proud of all our homes and believe Cheswick Village provides a clear opportunity to deliver a high quality care environment. Barchester is a company that has never lost sight of its principles and is a byword for the highest quality care. We work hard to grow each community with residents and staff to ensure every one of our properties becomes ‘a home’.”

Melville Knight, CEO, Castleoak, stated:

“Castleoak has worked with Barchester for many years, utilising our combined experience in care home development and operation, to deliver state of the art buildings for the provision of first class care.”
