The unit provides space for an additional 15 residents to receive round the clock care and support.
Home Manager, Michelle Montgomery, said: “We are delighted to open a new general residential unit at Dunmurry Manor for older people in our community to enjoy. We’ve strived to move past the previous challenges the home has faced, and have implemented and maintained such positive changes which have been widely recognised.
“My team have built a good reputation and instilled trust as a good service within our local community which has allowed us to expand our offering. We welcome anybody to come and meet us and take a tour of Dunmurry Manor.”
The official opening event was attended by current Dunmurry Manor care home residents, their families and friends, health and social care professionals, and visitors from the local area as well as broadcaster, Q Radio.
Runwood Homes Operations Director, Michael Doolin, said: “Thanks to the team at Dunmurry Manor for facilitating this day. We envisage the opening of the new unit will lead to an increased number of enquiries at the home and we can now fulfil the local demand for residential care.”
Chief Operating Officer, Gavin O’Hare-Connolly, added: “The team at Dunmurry Manor have worked incredibly hard to continually exceed standards and drive a positive change to the lives of those who share our home.
“Under Michelle’s leadership the team has become focused and proactive in a recovery ethos of care and as such the new unit further cements our vision for offering high quality residential care in a fantastic environment.”
