Anglican Care has decided in principle on a gradual wind down of its Bishopspark and Fitzgerald complexes.  No new residents will move in to Bishopspark or Fitzgerald and both sites will continue to operate with their existing residents.

Bishopspark, opposite Hagley Park, and Fitzgerald in Avonside provide independent living and rest home care; while Fitzgerald also offers hospital and dementia care.

The complexes will continue to operate around the needs of the residents so at this stage it is not possible to put a timeframe on how long this will continue. We expect this to become clearer once Anglican Care has spoken with residents and staff.

“We know this will be a challenging time for our residents and staff. Anglican Care will continue to provide the same quality of care to all residents at Bishopspark and Fitzgerald through this extended transition period.  This includes rest home residents at Bishopspark and hospital residents at Fitzgerald,” says Moka Ritchie, chair of the Anglican Care Trust Board.
