Following a £1.3 million refurbishment from its new owners Agincare, Gorseway Manor Care Home on Hayling Island will re-open for business from Monday 20 May 2019.
Since buying Gorseway Manor in late 2018, Dorset-based care provider Agincare has invested significantly in the south-east Hampshire site. As well as its financial investment, Agincare brings with it more than 30 years’ experience of providing high-quality yet affordable residential care.
Agincare CEO, Raina Summerson, said:
“Gorseway Manor was a key acquisition for Agincare due to its excellent position, the opportunity to provide a range of service from the site, and our confidence that we could bring it back to being the care home of choice on the Island.
“Now after an intensive refurbishment, it’s been brought up to the high standards expected of all Agincare care and nursing homes. We have a fantastic team, facilities and community here. Gorseway Manor offers a great quality of life and healthy retirement living, with the reassurance that professional care is always available should you need it.”
Bob Nelson, registered manager of Gorseway Manor Care Home and Gorseway Lodge Nursing Home, said:
“The entire team is very excited for the future of Gorseway as a Care Village, offering a variety of services for people when they need care and support. We’re really looking forward to welcoming new residents and staff who are interested to work for Agincare from next Monday. We’ve done a lot of work inside and out of the care home and our beautiful four-acre accessible site is looking great.
“While we can show potential residents round at any time, we’re also going to be opening up Gorseway Manor to the local community on 28 June for National Care Home Open Day. It’ll be a chance for local people to see what we’ve done with the place, meet our staff and residents, and get a taste of what it’s like to live here.”
Gorseway Manor has 31 lovely en-suite bedrooms, as well as five luxury suites with lounge areas, bedroom and bathroom. The care home boasts a number of communal rooms, including a TV room and sun lounge. The dining room was originally a stunning ballroom, which has been painstakingly restored to its former glory. These relaxing and sociable spaces can also be enjoyed by other members of the Gorseway Park community – the independent leasehold apartments and the Gorseway Nursing Home.
