Work is under way on a new multimillion-pound care home in Wilmslow, which will create 65 jobs when complete.

The Care UK facility, on Manchester Road, will also offer its own café, cinema and hair salon.

When complete the site will provide residential, nursing, dementia and respite care for up to 60 older people.

The home, which is expected to welcome its first residents in late 2024, will offer secure and wheelchair-friendly landscaped outdoor space that will include sensory gardens, water features and seating to give residents the opportunity to spend quality time outdoors.

Joshua Jones, development project manager for Care UK, said: “This impressive development reflects Care UK’s commitment to improving residential care in the region – we take great pride in the build quality of each home, carefully considering design and layout to improve the everyday experiences of those living in a care environment.

“This thoughtfully planned new home will live up to these standards, providing a high quality home for older people in Wilmslow and surrounding areas.”

Martin Sage, project lead at Russell WBHO, said: “Construction is off to a great start and we’re looking forward to reaching our next milestone in the coming months.”

Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, the new Care UK home will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities. The layout of the building will be configured into a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge/dining room to help facilitate the creation of close-knit communities.
