Chandler Court opens its doors

February 9 2018

 

Chandler Court has welcomed its first residents as it officially opened its doors this month.

Chandler Court in Bromsgrove, is the town’s newest luxury care home and will soon become home for 81 older people from the local area.

 

Since work started on the purpose-built care home, Chandler Court has embedded itself in the local community. Its name was provided by a Bromsgrove resident, the suites were named by local school children, and the care team has built strong links with organisations including Friends of St John’s.

Speaking about opening the care home’s doors for the first time, home manager Jo Gill said: “We are delighted to have welcomed our first residents this month and have officially started our new chapter here in Bromsgrove.

“We are really proud of the environment that has been created, and every last detail here has been considered to create a high-quality, luxury care home which will enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives.

John Rawlinson, regional director of West Midlands construction firm Stepnell, which has built the new home and is significantly experienced in designing and constructing specialist care facilities, said: “Chandler Court is an extremely high-spec accommodation scheme which we’ve really enjoyed delivering in partnership with Care UK for the local community. It’s thrilling to watch the first residents moving into their smart new accommodation today and see them bring this wonderful building to life.”

Jo Gill added: “Our doors are always open to people in the town and we invite them to pop in and talk to the team here to get an insight into what day-to-day life is like at Chandler Court. We look forward to an exciting first year and to welcoming residents, friends and families over the coming months.
