Following its innovative three year partnership with Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, New Care's Bramhall Manor care centre on Hardy Drive in Bramhall is now fully open and ready to welcome private residents from the local area.
Located close to the centre of Bramhall village, the top-rated 71-bed care centre was commissioned in its entirety by Stockport NHS Foundation Trust shortly after its opening in March 2020 as part of a borough-wide response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Working closely with Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, the experienced and professional clinical team at Bramhall Manor relieved pressure on Stepping Hill Hospital providing care for patients well enough to be discharged from hospital but not yet able to fully care for themselves in their own homes.
With the pandemic lessening in severity, the majority of the beds at the beautiful care centre have been returned to the New Care team, enabling Bramhall Manor to open fully, welcoming new private residents from across Bramhall and the surrounding areas to its warm and friendly care community.
Featuring 71 fully furnished bedrooms, each with a private en suite wet room, plus a selection of communal lounges, reading rooms and dining rooms, spa-assisted bathrooms, a nail bar, hair salon and landscaped gardens and terraces, Bramhall Manor is an expertly designed high quality care centre that provides a stunning living environment for its residents who enjoy person-centred individual care, freshly prepared nutritious meals and a daily programme of wellbeing activities.
Part of leading care home operator New Care, Bramhall Manor is renowned for its outstanding residential, respite and 24-hour nursing care.
A celebratory event was held recently, with the home officially re-opened by home manager and Bramhall resident Helen Hartley along with her parents Chris and Dave Easley who also live locally and support the home by giving their time voluntarily to help maintain the beautiful gardens and outdoor space.
The trio was joined by chief operating officer at New Care Cath Fairhurst and commissioning director Dawn Collett plus new clinical staff who have recently joined the company.
Commissioning director Dawn Collett commented: "Our partnership with Stockport NHS Foundation Trust was incredibly successful demonstrating how public and private care partnerships can deliver best outcomes for patients, but with the pandemic lessening in severity, the number of beds are no longer needed and we are able to focus fully on supporting private patients in Bramhall and the surrounding areas offering comprehensive residential, respite and 24-hour nursing care. We have already welcomed our first residents, with more moving in over coming weeks."
Home manager Helen Hartley added: "I'm so proud of our facility and how the team helped support the NHS during Covid, but it is now time to offer our care services to some of the most vulnerable and elderly in our own local community and we are looking forward to them joining our thriving and friendly home."
