New home opened in Bournemouth

Following a successful CQC inspection, Great Oaks, a purpose-built care home in Bournemouth has opened. The 80-bed care home offers nursing, dementia and residential facilities within a private woodland setting.

Great Oaks is managed by Encore Care Homes, which in partnership with the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, opened Fairmile Grange care home on the grounds at Christchurch Hospital in December last year.

Great Oaks manager Ian MacDonald, who is looking forward to welcoming its first residents, said: “I am excited to lead our incredible team of care professionals, whose compassion and kindness are at the core of everything that we do.”
