Work has begun on a new multi-million pound luxury care home which will provide quality care for older people in Quorn in Leicestershire.
Care UK and its principal contractor, Clegg Construction, has celebrated the start of work on the purpose-built home on Farley Way. When complete, the new care facilities will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 64 older people, and will create over 90 full-time jobs.
The two-storey home is expected to welcome the first residents in autumn 2020, and will include facilities such as a cinema, café and hairdressing salon. Secure and wheelchair-friendly landscaped outdoor space will include sensory gardens, water features and seating to give residents the opportunity to spend quality time outdoors.
Claire Ellam, development project manager for Care UK, said: “We are delighted to have started work on the new care home in Quorn, and are looking forward to improving the provision of residential care in the village and surrounding area.
“At Care UK, we take great pride in the build quality, layout and design of each individual home, as these factors can greatly impact the everyday experiences of those living in a care environment. Our new care home will live up to these standards, and will provide a quality home for older people across Leicestershire and beyond.”
Simon Blackburn, managing director at Clegg Constructionsaid: “We are proud to be playing a part in the progress of the much-needed, high-quality new care home for Quorn and the East Leicestershire community. The build has got off to great start and we are on schedule to complete the scheme in autumn 2020.”
