New Care on course to complete £15m Salford site in autumn
Care home operator New Care is on track to achieve practical completion on a new £15m, 71-bed facility near Salford in November.
Work at the site in Worsley started in September with principal contractor McGoff Construction managing the build programme.
The care facility will be arranged over three floors, with facilities including furnished bedrooms with ensuite wetrooms, communal lounges, dining rooms, spa-assisted bathrooms, hair salon, nail bar, landscaped gardens and a first-floor terrace.
A number of advanced care services have been incorporated into the build, such as acoustic monitoring and silent call bells.
New Care will in the coming months recruit up to 100 members of staff, from a home manager and carers to hospitality roles and wellbeing co-ordinators.
“We are pleased to be able to confirm that this care facility will open later this year, providing much needed care services in the locality,” said New Care commissioning director Dawn Collett.
“It will be the company’s first care home in Salford, complementing our already well-established existing facilities across the north-west, and we are looking forward to employing a new team in Worsley,” she added.
