The red carpet was rolled out for the grand opening of new care home, Gracewell of Ascot, on Thursday 4th October.
The care home, on Burleigh Road, will offer high quality, personalised nursing, residential and dementia care to older people right in the heart of the local community. To celebrate its opening, Gracewell of Ascot was delighted to host a very special launch event.
The celebration saw the welcoming of VIP guests including High Sheriff of Berkshire Graham Barker, Deputy Mayor Colin Rayner and Alan Carr MBE. Residents, local members of the community and health care professionals were also in attendance to enjoy the festivities, prosecco and delicious canapés.
Guests were treated to a live performance from the Charters School Jazz band and the soothing sounds of harpist Luisa-Maria Cordell. A ribbon was cut by founder member of Gracewell of Ascot June Wheeler, who also sliced a 3-tiered cake that featured decorative jockeys and horses to tie into the day’s ‘at the races’ theme.
Alongside the official opening event, Gracewell of Ascot is also marking the special celebration by offering 10% off residential fees for the first three months*.
Gracewell of Ascot is set to welcome up to 80 residents to its beautifully-designed and stylish en-suite bedrooms, with a full team of dedicated and compassionate carers and nurses on hand to deliver high-quality and personalised care. The home also has a beautiful courtyard which overlooks a picturesque sensory garden for all residents to enjoy.
The luxury care home will be the 21st home to be opened in the UK by Gracewell Healthcare. Each resident will receive a tailored care plan, created with their individual needs in mind. Residents will also benefit from the home being within walking distance to the local high street, railway station and local shops, as well as the famous Ascot racecourse.
And, like all Gracewell care homes, Gracewell of Ascot will offer a busy calendar to its residents, full of a diverse array of stimulating and engaging activities and events.
Stella Putt, General Manager at Gracewell of Ascot, said:
“We are very excited to have opened Gracewell of Ascot. We hope we showcased the high-quality and compassionate care we will strive to provide every single day, as well as the active role we are keen to play in the community.
“I am very proud to be leading a team of dedicated staff, who have been busy preparing our new home to ensure it meets the needs of all residents.
“We would like to thank everyone who made our opening event such a success and are now looking forward to welcoming residents over the coming weeks and months.”
