A leading West Midlands care home is to open a new £2.5 million luxury extension which will increase its capacity by nearly 60 per cent.
Beech Hill Grange, in Wylde Green, Sutton Coldfield will increase from 36 rooms to 55 rooms when the new extension to its Beech Hill Road premises is opened later this month, with further capacity planned for the future.
The new extension, which is landscaped and sympathetically designed to blend in with the existing Victorian building, includes 19 new en-suite rooms, three of which have their own private gardens. Many of the rooms have stunning views over the nearby Walmley Golf Club.
The extension also includes a new restaurant, a bistro where guests and relatives can get drinks and snacks, a spacious activities lounge and spa bathing facilities.
Construction of the new extension has been carried out using state-of-the-art sustainable construction methods and materials. Energy-saving fittings and renewable and sustainable materials ensure high levels of environmental performance.
Beech Hill Grange, which is registered as a care home with nursing and dementia care for people aged 65 and over, was established more than 25 years ago.
Beech Hill Grange director Christian Humpherston, whose mother originally established the home, said the extension would provide the highest level of comfort and care for residents, regardless of their needs.
“There is a need for more residential and nursing care in the area which our new extension will go some way to fulfilling. They will provide an excellent standard of nursing care and first class facilities in which activities and an active social life will be our priority. We are looking forward to welcoming new residents to our home,” he said.
The new extension will be formally opened on July 20. Showrooms in the new extension are available for viewing by arrangement.
Beech Hill Grange is an independent, well-established care home offering a comprehensive range of skilled nursing, personal care and practical support and services for residents. Working on the principles of dignity, individuality, independence and freedom of choice, the home aims to provide a secure, relaxed and homely environment within which the care, well-being and comfort of residents is of prime importance.
