A new care home has opened up in Dorset which is anticipated to create up to 120 new jobs, especially in the care and nursing field, once the property reaches full occupancy.
The Bourne View, operated by Colten Care, is an art deco-themed care home located on Langside Avenue on the Poole-Bournemouth border.
It boosts 68 en-suite bedrooms, a rooftop garden, a piano lounge and spa facilities to all its residents.
Colten Care currently runs 20 other registered nursing care homes in Dorset, Hampshire, Sussex and Wiltshire.
Chief executive of Colten Care, Mark Aitchison, said: "Residents are at the very heart of everything we do. We want the home to be a beacon of excellence reinforcing our position as one of the country’s leading care home groups.
"A building is only a small part of what makes a home outstanding however. It’s the team and the residents that define a home’s character. I am truly delighted by the team here at Bourne View.
"In our home manager Sohail Daniel and clinical lead Vera Almeida we have two highly experienced, dedicated professionals who embody our values.
"We are one team with two objectives, being the care provider of choice and employer of choice, and one goal: our residents and the care they receive."
