Wilmslow Manor

A £15m care scheme has opened in Wilmslow, creating around 100 jobs.

The Mayor of Cheshire East Council, Cllr David Marren, performed the opening ceremony at Wilmslow Manor Care Centre, on Handforth Road.

The facility is the latest care home to open by Altrincham-based operator New Care.

Designed to suit the specific plot, the team has worked with the architect and clinical lead, as well as with the local authority, to deliver a new facility that will provide residential, dementia, 24-hour nursing and respite care services.

Cllr David Marren and his wife, Belinda, were welcomed by Wilmslow Manor’s manager, Paula Clark, and deputy manager, Sophie Kay, for a tour of the facility, meeting several members of the New Care team.

Featuring 63 fully furnished bedrooms, each with a private en suite wet room, as well as several communal lounges and dining rooms, Wilmslow Manor provides living environments for its residents.

In addition, there is a spa assisted bathroom, nail bar and hair salon within the care home. Externally, the facility boasts landscaped gardens and outdoor terraces to the first floor

Cllr David Marren said: “Having seen the care home I am thrilled to say that the facility is very impressive both inside and outside.”

With recruitment well under way, Wilmslow Manor will create jobs across multiple disciplines, from carers and nurses to hospitality, housekeeping, activities, maintenance and chefs over the course of the next 12 months.
