At Queens View Harbour Care Home, we officially opened our doors last week on Friday 12th November and had a celebratory ceremony to mark the occasion.
Our care home in Troon unofficially opened to residents on July 22nd, but due to coronavirus restrictions, we were unable to fully commemorate the event.
Our Home Manager, Michelle Somerville was joined by SNP MP Dr Philippa Whitford and residents to cut the ribbon of our new home, which is currently occupied by 19 residents.
With a state-of-the-art cinema room, hairdresser, nail salon, and ample views of the marina in Troon, our home has been purpose-built on Templehill and can cater for any kind of service user.
On officially opening the home, Manager Michelle Somerville said she was “delighted with the work that has gone on, and she is extremely proud of the home.”
She said: “The home is purpose-built and it’s in an idyllic setting. People living here are already enjoying the facilities we have got on site. We’ve got a bar, a number of sitting rooms, a cinema, a café, and so much more. The café is great for family who are visiting and they can come and make their coffee and sit and have a catch up with family.”
“The home is built over three floors and it’s allowing us to care for the services users with a really personal approach. The people from Troon have been great and so welcoming for people in the community and I want to thank them for that. I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has helped this happen.”
Dr Philippa Whitford helped to cut the ribbon, and she was also delighted to see the hard work that had gone into making the home happen.
She added: “I want to thank Michelle for inviting me to see the home and to declare it officially open. When you see it, you can see how much hard work has gone into making it what it is, and everyone involved should be incredibly proud.”
“I want to wish all the service users all the happiness in the world during their time here and I’m sure they’ll get all the support they need.”
