A 60-bed residential facility for the elderly is being developed in Glasgow’s Crookston area with support from a £4m finance package from Royal Bank of Scotland.
Bonnyholm Care Home, which is currently being constructed on the site of the former Bonnyholm Primary School, will provide a mix of elderly nursing and specialist dementia care for the local area.
The project is in response to a tender issued by Glasgow City Council, in which the father and son team behind Bonnyholm Care Home won. The development, which is due to complete in April and open in May this year, is anticipated to create around 120 new jobs for the surrounding community in the Southside of Glasgow.
It will be the second care home delivered by John and Scott Shearer, who also own and operate the purpose-built Glenlivet Gardens care home based in Darnley, Glasgow, which was developed with the help of Royal Bank of Scotland.
John Shearer, director of Bonnyholm Care Home, said: “We’re just a couple of months away from the completion of our latest care home, which we’re confident will be a welcome addition to the local area of Crookston. Thanks to the support from Royal Bank of Scotland, Bonnyholm Care Home has been expertly designed and purpose-built to provide first-class care services to the community. We’re confident it will follow in the same successful path as Glenlivet Gardens and we very much look forward to its opening in May.”
Kevin McCormack, relationship director at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “We’re proud to support a family-run business making such a positive impact on the local community. Not only is Bonnyholm Care Home going to deliver important facilities to the elderly in the South of Glasgow, it will also create a sizeable number of jobs for the local community. We wish the Shearer family every success with their latest venture.”
