THE first residents have moved into a new state-of-the-art care home in Westerton.
People will be able to have a look around the 86 bed facility when it holds open days next week.
More than £10million was spent in creating the Maxwell Avenue home, which is constructed over three levels with floor to ceiling windows looking onto a view of the Campsies.
Each of the private rooms includes an en-suite bathroom, TV and music system, and in addition the home itself is designed to provide a wide range of facilities for residents, including an on-site hairdressing salon, library, cinema, resident’s celebrations room and a dedicated bedroom to allow overnight stays while visiting family.
Outside, Westerton Care Home has three tiered terraced gardens, a sensory garden and putting green.
Westerton Care Home’s award winning team is led by head of care Joan Fraser, who has over 25 years experience of care home management and is supported by experienced staff who will provide 24 hour nursing care for residents.
Mrs Fraser said: “It’s been an incredibly busy – and exciting – period for us over the past few months, and we’ve taken a lot of time to ensure that the environment is of the highest standard, and that our facility is a true home from home.
“In addition to the internal features, having such a great outdoor space is fantastic for residents and their visiting family – not to mention the most amazing view!
“We were delighted to welcome our first residents and I look forward to welcoming many more over the months.
“To celebrate our opening we’re hosting a number of open days this month, from Thursday, February 16 to Sunday, February 19 from 1pm till 4pm, to welcome those who would like to see around the facilities.
“It’s a great chance for potential residents to look around, and also for families who may be considering a care home provision for their family members to see what life is like in a modern care facility.
“If you are unable to make it along to the events, I would be delighted to arrange a private viewing for a time and date that suits you – please just give me a call on 0141 942 5831 to chat further. All enquiries are welcome.”
