Between 50 and 60 jobs are set to be created in Lincolnshire after Tanglewood Care Homes confirmed it will open its sixth care home in the county.

City of Lincoln Council gave the development the go-ahead at a planning meeting last month.

“Our Lincoln care home is the start of a new and exciting journey for the company,” said Tracy Ann Shelbourn, founder and director of Tanglewood Care Homes.

“Tanglewood has provided care, accommodation and employment to generations of Lincolnshire families. We are looking forward to welcoming our first residents and their families to Tanglewood in Lincoln in 2019.

How the new car home will look

“I feel honoured and truly delighted to be part of this exciting period in the company’s history.”

The building work will be carried out by LNT Construction, a Leeds-based firm, and the development is due to open in February 2019.

The three-storey home will cater for elderly residential care, nursing care and dementia care residents.

It will have a large, secure, landscaped garden as well as a café, cinema, tavern, hair salon and lounges.
