Private Residential Home in Bristol

Situated in Kingswood on the outskirts of Bristol, Avon Valley opened in May of 2019. Just a two minute drive from the A4174 Bristol ring road and 20 minutes from the M4, our care home offers residential, dementia and respite care to residents drawn from across the South Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol areas. Our proximity to the South Gloucestershire and Cotswold countryside is a big asset and our communal balconies look out over the beautiful rolling hills beyond Bristol’s city limits.

Meet Alyson, our Care Home Manager

I was born in South Wales, so some would say that I am “almost English”. I grew up with my parents and two sisters. Both parents were from large families and so I grew up surrounded by grandparents, aunts, uncles and many cousins. I stumbled into care work aged 17, while waiting to start a career in the police force, I enjoyed care so much that I decided to make it my career.

In the years following that, I got married, had two children and continued to work as a carer in a hospital and then a nursing home. Aged 35 and both children in high school, I ventured into managing a large service of care in the community. Although it gave me good foundations in a manager’s role, I dearly missed the atmosphere and belonging of a care home team and so went into managing what became a very successful care home, offering respite care and a day service. I happily remained there until 2015, when I went to work in Somerset to manage a large new development. I was able to embed it into the community, increase its occupancy and build its reputation.

Working for Avery and commissioning Avon Valley Care Home has been a dream come true, a blank canvas. The chance to develop best practices or routines from the outset as well as recruit my very own team. I have been able to develop staff into good ways of working, have staff that are there for the right reasons and build a team that are proud and respectful of what they do.

Mealtimes at our Residential Care Home in Bristol

Mealtimes can be the highlight of our day. We aim to make the experience as enjoyable and sociable for our residents as possible. Our excellent team of chefs are trained on delivering choice, quality, seasonality and nutrition in all our meals and we often enjoy themed culinary events too. Our kitchen staff love to keep our residents fed and happy, and if there is nothing on the menu that you fancy then the team will happily create something else. Our Chefs ‘follow the food’ and chat with residents about their likes and dislikes, ensuring their food is always well-received. Our gardening club provide the kitchen with many of the herbs needed for the delicious dishes made daily. Much of our food is locally sourced from Bristol and Gloucestershire suppliers or growers in our aim to shop locally and sustainably. We even have suppliers come and visit the home to present their produce so that residents can see the people behind their ingredients.

Snacks are the perfect accompaniment to the day. There are normally freshly baked cakes and biscuits available throughout the day, and our frequent guests are most appreciative when they visit loved ones in our cafe. Afternoon tea is something of a regular fixture at our retirement village in Bristol, again it is a time to gather and share in the days news or just make some new acquaintances.
