Build has commenced on a state-of-the-art new £15 million care facility on Heath Lane, to the west of Chester city centre.
Located in an area characterised by older, converted stock, care facilities, the new 81-bed purpose-built care centre will create approximately 70 jobs and is being built by New Care, one of the UK’s fastest growing development-led care home operators. Part of the McGoff Group, New Care works with its build partner, the multi-award winning principal contractor McGoff & Byrne, also part of the McGoff Group, throughout the entire design and construction process.
Unique in its ability to acquire, design, build and operate, the McGoff Group provides a ‘one stop shop’ approach naturally de-risking the development process while adding value and enhancing growth. The Group’s sixth care development, the three storey, 42,591sqft expertly designed facility in Chester will provide an exceptional clinical offering including residential, general nursing and specialist dementia care services.
Renowned for its high quality, person-centred care, New Care’s individual approach is evident in its focus on ‘enablement’ which involves working with each resident individually to maintain their health and wellbeing and ensure they remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.Catering for the aspiring needs of its residents in Chester and the surrounding areas, 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 hair salon and nail bar.
And, with its own dedicated hospitality team, the 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 and events.
CEO at New Care, Chris McGoff, comments: “We are delighted to have started work on our superb new 81-bed care home in Chester and are pleased to be providing the city with a truly modern, purpose-built care facility that will deliver high quality care with first class services. The plans for the new care facility are fantastic. Build is underway now and we are looking forward to the development taking shape in the coming months.”
