Residents, staff, relatives and friends of Bowfell House welcomed the Mayor of Trafford, Rob Chilton, Alderman Mrs Ward and parliamentary candidate for Stretford and Urmston, Kate Green to officially open the new £5million state of the art residential care home. Pupils from St Monica’s RC Primary in Flixton also attended the ceremony and buried a time capsule in the landscaped gardens for future generations to find.

The new home has 40 en-suite bedrooms for elderly individuals and those living with dementia.

Sitting at the junction of Bowfell Road, Flixton Road and Brook Road, Bowfell House will give residents and their families, invaluable care and support

within a safe, secure and modern environment, carefully designed by experts to ensure each resident can benefit from a tailored level of support. The site includes a hairdressing salon, library and designated areas for stimulation, relaxation or social interaction.

As well as offering easy access to amenities in the town, the care home will secure the future for 40 staff and create an additional 12 full time jobs in the Urmston community, and employees will be offered a series of training and development opportunities to encourage internal progression whilst ensuring a high level of care is given to all residents.


The Knoll Care Partnership Ltd is owned and managed by a local family who have been providing high quality care for the elderly in Trafford for over 30 years. Matt Callaghan, Director of The Knoll Care Partnership, said: “Bowfell House is our biggest home to date and represents an incredibly exciting period of growth for us. All 40 bedrooms are set to be occupied within the next 12 months, showing a clear demand for this personalised service that has residents’ wellbeing at its core.

Bowfell House will ensure that senior members of our community with advanced care needs, are able to enjoy a high standard of living in a beautiful environment, with the help of an experienced and dedicated team.”
