Bupa has announced plans for two new care homes in the Midlands and the south of England.
Work has begun on a new 64-bed home in Butler’s Green Road (pictured) which will replace the existing Downlands Park facility (pictured). Further plans have been announced for a 62-bed home in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
Downlands Park home manager Karen Harman said: “We are really pleased to be starting work on our new care home.
“We believe the home will offer the very best in tailored care, with first class facilities for residents and we are looking forward to seeing the home fully operational next year.”
The new Downlands Park home is part of a newly developed site including retirement living apartments and houses operated by Anchor and a community centre operated by Age UK. It will include a multi-purpose activities room, beauty salon, and landscaped gardens. All bedrooms will be en-suite. Dementia and nursing care will be provided at the home.
The Pebbble Mill care home will be a purpose built 62 bed service on the site of the former Pebble Mill BBC studios. It is located within a healthcare community, which includes a Circle private hospital, and dental hospital. The care home will have a multi-purpose activities room, beauty salon, landscaped garden and a rooftop terrace. All bedrooms will be en-suite. Nursing, dementia and residential care will be provided by the home.
