Specialist care home to create at least 100 jobs
Building works are nearing completion on the former Gateway Care Home site in Bradford, following approved plans for a new care facility creating more than 100 jobs within the local area.
Opening in phases, Cherrybrook Care Home will provide specialist care for adults living with dementia and complex mental and physical health conditions, with its first 16 beds open in October and full occupancy – 120 beds – available by the end of this year.
The home is currently undergoing a full refurbishment comprising structural maintenance, external works and internal renovation, including re-carpeting, updated layouts and decorating throughout.
The care home will feature lounges and dining areas, a hair-dressing salon, landscaped gardens, dedicated activity rooms and recreational facilities including pool tables.
Commissioning operations manager, Martin Deakin, said: “Although it has been hard work getting Cherrybrook ready we are thrilled to be reopening the site.
“Serving the local community as soon as possible is our priority, but we will not compromise our standards.
“It is important to all at Cherrybrook that this building truly becomes a home. One that is comfortable and safe while being a fulfilling place for our residents to live.”
