Millennium Care gets green light for Standish care home

Millennium Care has been granted planning permission for a 48-bed care home in Standish near Wigan.

Wigan Council approved the plans to build Langtree care home on an existing site between Chorley Road and Worthington Lake.

Combining with the Worthington Lake and Lakeside Care Homes, the three will form the Standish Care Village and will include onsite amenities such as a bird-watching observation decks, indoor botanical art and a music therapy suite.

Drawing on experience of Millennium operating a household model of care at its Worthington Lake Care Home, Langtree will operate along similar principles with each household incorporating clusters of eight residents.

In the event of another pandemic, the home, designed by ACA Architects, can continue to operate with appropriate zones and cohorts with strong consideration given to the prevention of infectious and viral spreads.

The home has been deliberately and carefully designed around existing trees to maximise the exposure to greenery and will also incorporate a woodland walking trail.

“Our vision is to create a community with the Standish Care Village where those in later life and with cognitive impairments are empowered to live a healthy and fulfilling life and connect with our natural surroundings,” said Millennium Care executive assistant Beth Brydges.

“Our goal is to create a home and village where those in our care find pleasure in a warm atmosphere and drawing inspiration from the Norwegian Hygge principle of finding contentment of wellbeing in cherishing the little things in life,” she added.
