Build has commenced on a new £12.5 million care home in Lytham. The ‘new generation’ 76 bed care facility, which is located on a spacious plot on Heyhouse Lane, will create approximately 70 jobs. Development funding for the project is being provided by Octopus Healthcare and New Care, one of the UK’s fastest growing development-led care home operators, will run the home under a lease arrangement once complete.
New Care, part of the McGoff Group, will be working with build partner; multi-award-winning, principal contractor McGoff & Byrne, also part of the Group, throughout the design and construction process. The McGoff Group utilises its unique ability to acquire, design, build and operate to provide a one stop shop approach, naturally de-risking the development process whilst adding value and enhancing growth.
As the Group’s fifth’s care development, the 3446m2 expertly designed, purpose-built care home will cater for the aspiring needs of its residents. Each of the well-appointed and restful bedrooms will enjoy en suite shower facilities, while the home itself will offer a number of communal lounges, formal dining rooms and gardens. The impressive facility will also boast a cinema, hair salon and coffee shop. With a dedicated hospitality team, the state-of-the-art facility will provide high end hotel-style services that ensure continued quality of life and enjoyment for residents, including fine dining, concierge services and a busy and varied programme of activities.
On the medical side, it will offer residential, nursing and specialist dementia care services. Renowned for its focus on high quality, individual person-centred care, New Care’s exceptional clinical offering will be evident also, with the delivery of its ‘enablement’ philosophy, which involves working with residents individually to maintain their health and wellbeing and ensure they remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.
CEO at New Care, Chris McGoff, comments: “We are delighted to have started work on our superb new 76-bed care home in Lytham and are pleased to be providing the town with a truly modern, purpose-built care facility that will deliver high quality care with first class services. “The plans for the care facility in Lytham are fantastic. Build is underway now and as a company we are looking forward to the development to take shape in the coming months.”
