Residents, staff, relatives and friends of Bowfell House welcomed the Mayor of Trafford, Rob Chilton, Alderman Mrs Ward and parliamentary candidate for Stretford and Urmston, Kate Green to officially open the new £5million state of the art residential care home. Pupils from St Monica’s RC Primary in Flixton also attended the ceremony and buried a time capsule in the landscaped gardens for future generations to find.

The new home has 40 en-suite bedrooms for elderly individuals and those living with dementia.

Sitting at the junction of Bowfell Road, Flixton Road and Brook Road, Bowfell House will give residents and their families, invaluable care and support

within a safe, secure and modern environment, carefully designed by experts to ensure each resident can benefit from a tailored level of support. The site includes a hairdressing salon, library and designated areas for stimulation, relaxation or social interaction.

As well as offering easy access to amenities in the town, the care home will secure the future for 40 staff and create an additional 12 full time jobs in the Urmston community, and employees will be offered a series of training and development opportunities to encourage internal progression whilst ensuring a high level of care is given to all residents.

 

The Knoll Care Partnership Ltd is owned and managed by a local family who have been providing high quality care for the elderly in Trafford for over 30 years. Matt Callaghan, Director of The Knoll Care Partnership, said: “Bowfell House is our biggest home to date and represents an incredibly exciting period of growth for us. All 40 bedrooms are set to be occupied within the next 12 months, showing a clear demand for this personalised service that has residents’ wellbeing at its core.

Bowfell House will ensure that senior members of our community with advanced care needs, are able to enjoy a high standard of living in a beautiful environment, with the help of an experienced and dedicated team.”

Thoughts of our Customers

  • Bowfell is a sparkling new state of the art care home which continues to keep hold of the traditions set by Fairways. The attention to detail is second to none, in fact .... I would like to reserve a room! Over the last few weeks I have found myself dancing, singing and playing the maracas, what a great atmosphere for the residents and their close family

  • I cannot praise ALL the staff highly enough for their excellent care and compassion towards my mum.  The home is spotless and the atmosphere is calm and welcoming.  My mum has improved with her mobility, and eating since moving in. Our Family have been involved in all care making decisions for mum and welcomed when we visit. You should all be very proud :)

  • Our Sister has settled well and is thriving in the fabulous environment that is Bowfell. I could speak of the surroundings, food and hairdressing all of which are first class but it is the amazing staff who are the reason I felt the need to contact you. Every level of staff have contributed to a perfect whole.

    Sister of a Resident

  • My Sister has been a resident firstly at The Knoll and now at Bowfell House since September 2019. From the first moment we visited the staff shone like a beacon on a very dark day. Their sense of commitment, empathy and dedication was palpable. They were in a class of their own. The understanding shown to me and all my sister's family as we faced the very difficult decision to entrust our Sister to their care has been amazing.

  • My mother has only been a resident in Bowfell house since mid-November and we have had nothing but exceptional care and service from all the team starting with the warm welcoming smile on arrival from Vicky to the housekeepers. The carers have cared for mum with dignity and warmth which has been a blessing for my sister and myself. It is good to know who to speak to with any feedback but so far everything is fabulous.
