Residents and colleagues at Brendoncare Ronald Gibson House, a care home in Tooting, South West London, will be transferring to a brand-new, purpose-built building next door.
The Meadowcroft, which will open in autumn 2022, will be operated by Greensleeves Care, a leading not-for-profit care organisation in the UK.
The new home will be finished to high specifications and will have 64 purpose built en-suite bedrooms, as well as state-of-the art facilities to allow for excellent care provision.
The name ‘The Meadowcroft’ was chosen to reflect the historical site on which the home sits, as the area was home to large flower nurseries back in the mid-1800s, which were cultivated there for research and development as well as to sell across the country.
All residents and colleagues who currently live and work at Brendoncare Ronald Gibson House will be given the opportunity to transfer to The Meadowcroft.
Brendoncare and Greensleeves Care are closely aligned in their values, both being not-for-profit care providers, and both organisations are committed to working together to make the transition as seamless as possible for residents and colleagues.
Marianne Wanstall, Chief Executive at Brendoncare, said: “Our colleagues at Brendoncare Ronald Gibson House are a fantastic team and their support of residents and their families has always been excellent. The new home will allow the team to continue to provide the same high standard of care in a modern and state-of-the-art home.
“Ensuring a smooth transition is our priority. We are delighted to be working together with like-minded care charity Greensleeves Care to support residents, relatives & colleagues as they move to The Meadowcroft.”
Paul Newman, Chief Executive of Greensleeves Care, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming colleagues and residents from Ronald Gibson House to our Greensleeves Care family. The Meadowcroft will allow for the continuation of excellent care in a setting with modern facilities.
Supporting residents and colleagues during the transition is our number one priority, and we are proud to be working together with Brendoncare to ensure the best possible outcome.”
