A NEW 70-bed dementia and nursing care centre has opened in Thornbury.

Grace Care Centre on Midland Way is the first in South Gloucestershire to be run by the Orders of St John Care Trust, a not-for-profit charitable trust.

It has been named after the cricketing Grace brothers - EM and WG - due to their links with Thornbury.

The home’s general manager is qualified nurse Pyela Mwale, who has helped commission two previous care homes.

She said. “I like the challenge of setting up a new home as it gives me an opportunity to choose the right team to work with and an even greater opportunity to get it right from the start.”
