Park View Gloucester – New care home

Press release February 2016

 

Markey Group, based in Hardwicke, are finalising the development of a new 97 bed care home at the corner of Southgate Street and Trier Way in Gloucester city centre. 

Park View is ideally located next to Gloucester Quays with direct access to Gloucester Park, and within easy reach of Gloucester’s many other attractions and facilities. 

The state of the art care home is due to open late spring this year, offering specialist dementia care and nursing facilities, extra care apartments and respite care, along with a range of other care services for older people.  The home has capacity for 102 residents and will be supported by a dedicated team of care staff.  The home will provide employment for around 150 people when full.

Arranged across four floors, Park View will provide 24 hour individualised care in high quality, comfortable surroundings with excellent facilities.  Built with energy efficiency in mind for minimal environmental impact, residents will benefit from features such as under floor heating and low energy lighting throughout.

Park View provides a discreet specialist call system ensuring help is at hand 24 hours a day, specially equipped bathrooms, wheelchair access and lifts for accessibility.  All bedrooms have en-suite wet rooms with shower facilities, and are equipped with wifi access along with points for telephone and digital television.

Large, bright lounges provide sociable spaces with comfortable furniture and TVs, while quiet areas are set aside for reading and relaxing.  A hearing loop is installed in many of the communal lounges.  On the ground floor is a coffee shop, library area, hair salon and quiet seating areas for residents to spend time with family and friends.

Markey Group companies are working together to complete the project.  Markey Construction and Markey Building Services have created the structure of the home, Premiere Furniture are supplying kitchen, bathroom and bedroom furniture, and Markey Interiors are providing additional design and interiors elements. 

Charlotte Potter, Home Manager said ‘with over 13 years experience working in the care profession, I am passionate about creating a care home where staff are supported to enable our residents to live fulfilled and happy lives.  I’m really looking forward to welcoming both visitors and residents to Park View’.
