Our brand new care home, which offers luxury harbourside accommodation for up to 56 residents in South Ayrshire, is gearing up to welcome its first residents next week.
Queens View Harbour Care Home overlooks the marina in Troon and has been under construction for the past 18 months. This week, our team have been adding the finishing touches, ready for our grand opening.
Our home is situated on Templehill, which is perfectly located near Troon’s bustling high street and is only a short stroll to the waterfront and marina.
Built over three floors, our home looks out towards Arran, with each floor offering communal balconies. Our home also has a beautiful garden area, complete with a putting green, that feels modern yet relaxed and resembles a trendy restaurant’s outdoor seating area.
Manager Michelle Sommerville said: “All rooms are filled with plenty of natural daylight and are fitted out with their own televisions and en-suite bathrooms. The home is split into four wings across two floors, enabling the residents to live in small communities of 14, with each community having it’s own dining room, lounge area and quiet room.
“But the key feature for me is the ground floor, we’ve designed it like a community space. As well as having communal areas and the bedrooms upstairs, the ground floor is really quite unique for a care home.”
Our lobby would match any top hotel, and alongside the community coffee shop that we have for residents and guests to enjoy, we also have a fully equipped hair salon, nail station and treatment room. The real jewel in the crown is the fully functioning champagne bar that allows residents to carry on living an enjoyable social life.
To further highlight our wonderful facilities, we also have a cinema room and offer a wide range of activities and entertainment. Our team have been busy building relationships with local community groups and arts groups to bring the Troon community to the residents.
A private dining area that can be booked for family meals and occasions, with a separate lounge area to relax and spend further time with family. There is even a guest bedroom to allow family members to stay over.
Some of Troon’s primary schools have even been involved in naming special areas of the home. For example, the coffee shop, alongside the wings of the home, are named after the kids’ suggestions, and it is hoped that intergenerational activities will resume soon.
Michelle said: “The staff have been gelling well and preparing to welcome and care for the first residents next week. It’ll be our official launch in September, so stay tuned to find out.”
