Work has begun on a new multi-million pound luxury care home which will provide quality care for older people in Sale.
Care UK and specialist development partner, Termrim Construction Ltd, have celebrated the start of work on the purpose-built home on Washway Road. When complete, the new care facility will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 60 older people, and will create over 68 full time jobs.
The three-storey home, which is expected to welcome its first residents in autumn 2019, will includefacilities 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.
Tim Parker, construction project manager for Care UK, said: “We are delighted work has begun on the new care home in Sale, not least because this impressive development reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the town.
“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 in Sale and beyond.”
Simon Bateman, contract manager at Termrim Construction, said: “Development of this high-quality new care facility has got off to a great start. We are on schedule to complete the scheme in autumn 2019. This is a high-profile project for Termrim Construction, and we are proud to be playing a part in the delivery of this much-needed new care home for the Sale community.”
Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, the new care home will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities. The layout of the building will be configured into a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge/dining room to help facilitate the creation of close-knit communities.
