A SAUCHIE care home is celebrating following the unveiling of their successful refurbishment project.

Beechwod park Care Home brought residents, colleagues and members of the local community together to witness the grand reopening of parts of the home.

The care home, part of the Aria Care Group, underwent a comprehensive £18 million makeover, which included a redecoration of the communal areas to encourage social interaction and engagement.

The bedrooms in the home were refurbished to improve comfort and the reception area has been refitted to foster a more nurturing and welcoming environment.

Caroline Roberts, CEO of Aria Care, said: “Ensuring the wellbeing and comfort of the people that live and work in our communities has always been our top priority.

“By revitalising our communities, we aim to continue a nurturing and vibrant atmosphere that truly feels like home, and where care is given from the heart.”

To celebrate the refurbishment project coming to an end, the care home organised a celebration event.

Beechwood Care Home was joined by members of the Sauchie community, provost councillor Donald Balsillie and the Dementia Choir, who provided entertainment.

The provost delivered a short speech before the residents, before entertainment was performed by the choir and also local bagpiper Charlie, whose grandparents live in the home.

Residents and colleagues were treated to trishaw rides provided by Cycling Without Age as well.

A spokesperson for Beechwood said: “This transformation represents a new chapter in Beechwood Park’s rich history, promising their continued commitment to providing the best possible care and living entertainment.”
