We understand that the people we will be supporting will have passions and interests that could be difficult to pursue after moving into a care home – but that doesn’t mean we won’t encourage them to try! Some hobbies can define a person, so our activities team will be dedicated to ensuring that everyone we support is able to do what makes them happy to the best of their abilities. Social events will be organised with individual tastes in mind and with the idea that residents have the opportunity to try new and exciting things.

Life at Ouse View Care Home

Handing over of keys

General Manager, Pauline Hodgson was delighted to receive the keys to Barchester Healthcare’s latest new-build care home, Ouse View from McGoff Construction’s Site Manager, Neil Wilkinson.

Situated in the historic village of Fulford, near York, and with commanding views over the North Yorkshire countryside, Ouse View is a purpose-built care home due to open its door to residents in late August 2020. Set in secure, picturesque gardens, and within walking distance to a variety of local shops and amenities, the home has been specifically designed to provide high-quality elderly care, including residential care, as well as care and support for individuals living with dementia.

For enquiries regarding the home, please contact Home Services Advisor, Adam Pope on 01904 615117 or email at adam.pope@barchester.com

Topping Out

We marked the completion of the latest stage of Ouse View with a topping out ceremony, where the final tile was laid, and final brick was fitted.

McGoff Construction Contracts Manager; John Redford commented: “We were delighted to reach such a significant stage in the build process today. It was a pleasure to share the occasion with our project partners Barchester Healthcare. We look forward to handing over the Marketing Suite in the next few weeks which will allow finished aspects of the care home to be showcased.”

Mark Bennett, the Director of Property Services at Barchester said, “This is one of 10 projects we’ve collaborated with McGoffs on and we couldn’t be more pleased. Each new build uses a bespoke Barchester Healthcare design that has incorporated learnings from previous homes we’ve built. This was to ensure each of our homes are not only safe, comfortable and welcoming, but luxurious, spacious and thoughtful. The homes design will not only allow our staff to provide the best level of care for the residents who live there, but also ensure the residents are able to live dignified lives in surroundings that allow them to be as independent as they choose to be.
