Fulfilling lives, fulfilling Careers.

Where you'll work

Trymview Hall care home is a brand new, state-of-the-art care home being built in Southmead, Bristol. Here, quality care will be delivered in luxury hotel-style surroundings. We will be opening its doors later in 2019, when our experienced team will provide full time nursing and residential care, short term respite care and specialist dementia care. At Trymview Hall, we will support residents to live life the way they want. We will get to know them well so that we can create care and lifestyle plans – even menus – that are tailored to their needs and tastes. Keeping busy is the best way to maintain independence and physical and mental wellbeing as we get older. That’s why we will support your loved one to do the things that bring them meaning and fulfilment. The home will have its own coffee shop, comfy cinema room and hair and beauty salon, so your loved one will be free to enjoy a fulfilling lifestyle.
