GreenAcres Specialist Dementia Care Home, formally known as The Green Acres Hotel, was once a forty-three bedroom, three-star hotel, which operated for more than forty years, serving Guernsey’s tourism industry. However, due to a decline in tourism, the Hotel permanently closed its doors on 31 October 2012 and was left derelict for a number of years.
In 2014, after many long and detailed discussions, five individuals, three local doctors, one Registered General Nurse and her husband, who had detailed knowledge of building construction, unveiled their plans to convert the unoccupied Hotel into a Specialist Dementia Care Home.
After a year of campaigning with fantastic support from Guernsey’s community, plans to refurbish the former Hotel into a specialist facility were approved on 21 July 2015, with work on GreenAcres commencing on 1 March 2016.
GreenAcres is now a privately-run Specialist Dementia Care Home with 47 beds that opened its doors to its first resident on the 1 February 2017.
