Development-led care home operator, New Care, have broken ground on a state-of-the-art facility in Wilmslow, with practical completion now confirmed for August 2022.
Once complete, Altrincham based New Care will have transformed the 1.14 acre site on Handforth Road into a purpose-built 63-bed care home with a value circa £15 million. Principal contractor, McGoff Construction (New Care’s sister company), is managing the build programme.
With clinical offerings across its homes spanning residential, nursing, dementia and respite care services, New Care is pleased to be delivering much needed, high quality care home beds in Wilmslow. Dawn Collett, Commissioning Director at New Care, said:
“Work on site is going well and the foundations of the care facility are now in place. Over the course of the next 12 months the development will take shape and we look forward to bringing one of our award-winning care facilities to Wilmslow.
“The design of this care home is specific to this particular site, with the construction team working closely with New Care’s operational team to ensure the facility will work to the benefit of its residents.
“We continually provide the highest standards of care within all of our care facilities, and this care home in Wilmslow will be no different. We are committed to delivering a safe and stylish home-from-home environment, in the heart of the community where people want to live, which will no doubt appeal to Wilmslow residents.”
New Care’s latest care home will be arranged over three floors, featuring fully furnished private bedrooms with en suite wet rooms, communal lounges, dining rooms, spa assisted bathrooms as well as a hair salon and nail bar.
A number of advanced care services have been incorporated into the build, such as acoustic monitoring and silent call bells, which will further enhance the level of care available.
The care facility will also enjoy beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds, as well as an outdoor terrace to the first floor, ensuring residents live in a desirable, comfortable, safe and secure environment.
