Bothwell Castle Care Home has been compared to a boutique hotel

Posted on 11 December 2018

WHAT Every Woman Wants business tycoon Gerald Weisfeld has become the first resident to move into a new, luxury £10million care home.

It boasts a cinema, cocktail, piano bar, games room and a hair and beauty salon as well as a chauffeur-driven Mercedes and fine dining restaurant.

However, the company say the local community will also benefit as local groups will be given the opportunity to use designated spaces free of charge to host events including exercise classes.

Gerald 78, was the buyer behind the hugely successful brand that the couple built up from one store to a chain of 130 UK stores and sold in 1990 for £50m.

More than £10m has been invested into the purpose built care home which will create over 100 full and part-time jobs and provide nursing, residential, dementia and respite care.

Katherine Bain, Home Manager, at Bothwell Castle Care, said: “Our ethos is very much on re-ablement, encouraging residents to continue to be physically and emotionally active, looking very much at what they can do rather than focusing on any age related challenges they may have.

“We are very excited to welcome Gerald as our first resident.”
