Care home operator to deliver 139 new beds in Stockport

A typical New Care centre

Development-led care home operator New Care has received planning consent for two new £15m care centres in Stockport.

Helping to address the increasing shortage of beds in the area, the Cheshire-based operator has received approval for a state-of-the-art 71-bed care home off Hardy Drive in Bramhall, and a similar 68-bed care facility on the site of the old Queen’s Arms pub on Stockport Road in Cheadle.

Each of the privately-funded ‘new generation’ care facilities will be purpose-built to ensure that the highest standards of care can be delivered in a comfortable and stylish home-from-home environment.

Each property will boast spacious and fully-furnished bedrooms, complete with private en suite wet rooms, elegant communal lounges, fine dining rooms, spa assisted bathrooms, a hair salon, nail bar and landscaped gardens.

Above all, they will provide an outstanding clinical offering including residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, with all residents receiving individual person-centred compassionate care that is enhanced by a meaningful programme of daily activities and excursions.

New Care chief executive, Chris McGoff, said: “We are committed to bringing our award-winning care facilities to areas of the UK with an identified and well-documented need.

“The care crisis in Stockport is escalating – seven care homes have closed in the last two years resulting in the loss of 151 beds and we are pleased to help address this by delivering 139 new beds to the area.”

Having worked closely with Stockport Council on the design of the two schemes, New Care is delighted that the projects have been approved and is looking forward to getting started on site in the New Year.

New Care’s portfolio of purpose-built ‘new generation’ care centres is fast gaining a reputation for outstanding care.
