Work has begun to start on an 85-bed care home with specialist on-site dementia care at Trafford Waters in TraffordCity, Manchester.
Trafford Council approved the plans for the 85-bed care home earlier this year, which will be delivered in partnership with specialist healthcare provider Montpelier Estates, investment partner Octopus Real Estate, and waterside regeneration specialists Peel Waters.
The home will offer tailored dementia care and amenities for later living, with a range of on-site facilities to encourage socialising and community building in a comfortable, safe, and supportive space.
The new home forms a key part of Peel Waters’ plans for its Trafford Waters neighbourhood. Peel secured outline planning permission for the waterside development in TraffordCity, which is projected to create 3,000 new jobs and 3,000 new homes, in addition to a new primary school, hotel, and 20 acres of open space.
Montpelier Estates director Anna Ciesielska said: “We are delighted to be a part of Peel Waters’ vision for a new community and we are extremely excited that the ideas we started to formulate nearly two years ago are about to be built and become a home to many residents.
“We feel extremely privileged to be working with partners that share our ethos and beliefs of what a care home should be. We understand that moving into a care home is a life changing decision for the whole family and that is why we are focused on creating spaces which people find attractive to spend their time in and where they can continue to have an active role in the wider community.
“The support and assistance we have had from Peel Waters, Octopus Real Estate and their operator has been invaluable and it is only with their help that the project has been able to proceed to this stage.”
