Prestwick Care rolls out red carpet for Alnwick opening

A £12m, state-of-the-art care home in Alnwick will be officially unveiled by the Duchess of Northumberland on 21 September.

Beech Tree House is an 86-bed home providing nursing, dementia and residential care, equipped with specialist facilities to care for young, physically disabled people, bariatric residents and those with brain injuries.

The home boasts a range of facilities designed to enhance the quality of life for residents, including coffee shop, cinema room and hair salon.

The development has been designed to create a sense of ‘home’ as well as ‘care,’ with carefully chosen paintings and ornaments.

Bedrooms feature inbuilt flat-screen TVs while bathrooms are designed to be as attractive as they are functional.

Beech Tree House is Prestwick Care’s second Alnwick residential care home - after it purchased Hillcrest in 2019 - and the second in its platinum range of homes.

The company’s 13-strong portfolio of care homes across Tyne and Wear and Northumberland, will be joined by new, purpose-built facilities at Ryhope, Sunderland and at Whitley Bay later this year.
