Residents and staff of Napier House Glenrothes celebrated the official opening of the new sixty bed state-of–the-art care home. The £7.1m Napier House is the new home for residents who previously stayed in Alan McLure and South Parks care homes and moved in at the end of August. The care home also provides day services for up to 20 older people from the local area who can come along, make friends and have fun.
Co-Leader of Fife Council Cllr David Ross said: “Napier House provides the highest quality care and will allow integrated models of care to be developed to meet the individual needs of every resident. It’s great to see residents in their new state of the art accommodation and hear how they are settling in. All the feedback we have had so far is extremely positive and very appreciative of the warm, friendly and comfortable environment.”
Co-Leader of Fife Council Cllr David Alexander said: “The care our residents at Alan McClure and South Parks received was always excellent and both had a good reputation. Napier House will build on this and the new facilities will provide an environment which will enhance the level of support already provided for the residents. Person centred care combined with activities and entertainment will stimulate and enhance their lives and enable residents to enjoy life as much as they possibly can.”
Michael Kellet Director of Health & Social Care added: “The completion of Napier House is a wonderful achievement and has come to fruition through an amazing collaboration between many partners. Everyone involved has worked hard work to build and create an environment that will bring the maximum possible benefit to the residents.”
The opening of Napier House marks the completion of the first phase of the Care Village that will be built on the site.The Care Village will also include 30 extra care housingin a two storey ‘complex’ which includes a communal lounge area for tenants and a café area for the residents, families and wider community to enjoy.
