OSJCT Gloucestershire Care Home facilitates new community purpose-built nursing unit
The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT) is a provider of initiatives to help promote and support care pathways in the community.
In South Gloucestershire, OSJCT’s newest home Grace Care Centre has welcomed patients of Sirona care & health to their premises and in doing so helping to support care in the community. This relocation by Sirona has been supported by Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (BNSSG CCG) and North Bristol NHS Trust who is responsible for Thornbury Hospital in Bristol. Individuals with rehabilitation needs at Thornbury Hospital have now been moved to the purpose-built nursing unit (named Henderson Rehabilitation Unit) at Grace Care Centre which is registered, managed and staffed by Sirona.
The aim of this service is to provide a safe and dedicated area for those to recuperate through intensive therapy and once medically well to swiftly return back to a home environment or their preferred location
Kerry Dearden, Deputy Chief Executive at OSJCT said, “We are really pleased to support the community of Thornbury and South Gloucestershire by enabling the use of our new home, Grace Care Centre, for the benefits of individuals to be rehabilitated and then be able to move to their preferred onward location. We look forward to working with Sirona and making the facilities of Grace Care Centre available to their service users and the wider Thornbury community.”
