Bristol home opens new residential wing

Fairview Court Care Home in Kingswood, Bristol, has opened a new residential wing following a major refurbishment.

The home, which provides residential, dementia, respite, and nursing care, has increased its capacity by nearly a quarter from 66 to 81 beds. The opening of the new wing was attended by the Labour candidate for Kingswood, Damien Egan, along with residents of Fairview Court and their friends and families.

Residents Molly Saunders and Yvonne Evans who lived as neighbours in the original space, and who have forged a long-standing friendship at Fairview Court, cut the ribbon to officially open the new wing.

Pyela Mwale, care home manager at Fairview Court, said: “We are delighted to have opened our new wing at Fairview Court Care Home, which will increase the provision of high-quality elderly care for people in the Kingswood area and beyond.

“This extension was a serious undertaking, and like most projects of its scale it has had its ups-and-downs, but we couldn’t be more thrilled by how beautiful the new rooms and facilities are and we’re really looking forward to welcoming new residents to our home.”

Damien Egan, former MP for Kingswood and current Labour candidate for Kingswood, said: “I was so pleased to attend the opening of Fairview Court’s new residential wing.

“It was a pleasure to meet so many residents and their families and this modern extension will provide superb accommodation for those requiring residential or nursing care now and in the future. It is a very welcome addition to the residential care home capacity in Kingswood.”
