Development-led care home operator, New Care, recently broke ground on a stunning, state-of-the-art care facility on Handforth Road in Wilmslow, with practical completion now confirmed for August 2022.

Work is progressing well on site with the foundations firmly in place and brick work under way. Within a year, the Altrincham-based company will transform the 1.14 acre site into an expertly designed, purpose built 63-bed care home, with a value circa £15m.

Renowned for the delivery of high end, luxury care facilities across the North West, New Care’s latest care home will be arranged over three floors, featuring fully furnished private bedrooms with en suite wet rooms, elegant communal lounges, stylish dining rooms, spa assisted bathrooms, as well as a hair salon and nail bar.

A number of advanced care services have been incorporated into the build, such as acoustic monitoring and silent call bells, which will further enhance the level of care available.

The care facility will also enjoy beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds, as well as an outdoor terrace to the first floor, ensuring residents live in a desirable, comfortable, safe and secure environment.

Dawn Collett, commissioning director at New Care, said: “Work on site is going well and the foundations of the care facility are now in place.

“Over the course of the next 12 months the development will take shape and we look forward to bringing one of our award winning care facilities to Wilmslow.”

She added: “The design of this care home is specific to this particular site, with the construction team working closely with New Care’s operational team to ensure the facility will work to the benefit of its residents.

“We continually provide the highest standards of care within all of our care facilities, and this care home in Wilmslow will be no different.

“We are committed to delivering a safe and stylish home-from-home environment, in the heart of the community where people want to live, which will, no doubt, appeal to Wilmslow residents.”

Principal contractor, McGoff Construction, New Care’s sister company, is managing the build programme.

Part of the McGoff Group, New Care is one of the UK’s leading care home providers.
