We started our caring journey over 27 years ago by opening the first Bristol Care Homes home in Almondsbury. Read below how our story continued until today.
Our story starts over 27 years ago when our Chairman Geoff Crocker had the vision to build a care home where residents can live a fulfilling and meaningful life. The motivation came from a genuine desire to lift the standards of care for the elderly generation living in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
Glebe House in Almondsbury was the first Bristol Care Homes home to open its doors in 1996. Being an Old Vicarage, this beautiful building with breathtaking views over the countryside gave a great opportunity to create an outstanding home for its future residents.
Our story continues through a new build opportunity to open a second home, this time in beautiful Thornbury. This was a result of consultation with the local community about the need for a quality care home in the area.
Beech House subsequently opened in 2000. It has spacious and bright rooms with en-suites and a beautiful, award-winning garden where our residents plant flowers and grow vegetables.
Two years later, in 2002, the third Bristol Care Homes home opens its doors, this time in North Bristol. Field House is a wonderful gem hidden away from the hustle and bustle on a peaceful residential road in Horfield. The home has been redecorated several times over the years making sure it delivers the highest standards of care possible. The building wraps around a beautiful interior garden that hosts most of our summer events.
The last and newest of our homes, Quarry House, started welcoming residents in 2016. This is a wonderful care home with 65 individual rooms, each with its own state-of-the-art en-suite. Quarry House is where Bristol Care Homes also launched a project that significantly improved the lives of our dementia residents by using innovative decor ideas. The project has now become a nationally noted development in creating dementia-friendly environments in care homes.
2018 saw the appointment of Geoff’s son, Rich to the position of CEO following an initial career in the NHS, while Geoff maintains his Chairman position. Completing the executive team is Linda Warren, our Finance Director. Linda has been part of the Bristol Care Home family from the first moment, spending time as the managing director and moving into the FD position, always delivering the highest standards of care in all our homes in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
Bristol Care Homes is a family-owned project that started from the genuine vision to deliver great levels of care to our residents. We continually reinvest in the homes’ environment, implement new systems to support our staff and residents. We ensure the best level of care to our residents by acquiring new equipment as required, giving our staff great opportunities for development and providing the very best dining and activity experiences for our residents. You can see this through the unique features that we provide.
