Poets Mews Care Home handed over to Avery Healthcare by J. Tomlinson Ltd
Avery secured planning permission from North Somerset Council to build a 68 bedroom care home, but have since expanded the application to build to an 80 bed capacity to meet local demand. Work began in 2018 and has taken 18 months to complete. The home will also have 28 car parking spaces, a communal garden and a sensory dementia garden.
The facility cost £10 million to build and Avery employed local trades and suppliers wherever possible to support the local economy.
Poets Mews Care Home will be Avery’s 60th service to open, and they also operate four Hawthorns Retirement communities, one of which is on Elton Road, Clevedon.
Avery Healthcare have said: “People staying at the home can expect a bit of everything.”
“They will get high-quality personal care from a highly-trained professional staff team and the latest in care for those living with dementia, based on up-to-date research and practices.
“There will be quality dining and free refreshments throughout the day in the all-day café and a sector-leading wellbeing programme and a daily calendar of events and activities for all including day trips to places of interest in our own minibus.
“We want Poets Mews to be recognised for the very best for care and resident services in North Somerset.”
Residents will enjoy such on-site amenities as a cinema, hair salon and private dining room, plus landscaped gardens with raised beds and a potting shed.
Poets Mews will create up to 75 full-time and part-time jobs when full.
