Care facility to create at least 100 jobs to help meet rising demand

The first phase of a new multi-unit care facility, Alderbrook Care Home, is to open its doors in Leeds later this year, creating more than 100 jobs.

Occupying the former Donisthorpe Hall site on Shadwell Lane, Alderbrook Care Home will provide specialist nursing care for adults living with dementia and complex mental and physical health conditions.

Opening in phases, Silver Lodge unit will provide 40 en-suite bedrooms with a further 20 due to open before the end of the year. The home’s total occupancy of 160 en-suite bedrooms will be available in 2024.

The care home will feature lounge areas and dining rooms, a sensory room, hairdressing salon, cinema and secure landscaped gardens.

Home manager, Clare McCourt, said: “Alderbrook is a beautiful care home that we know will become an asset to the local community, but above that, it provides substance – the building blocks to better care that help residents feel loved and valued.

“The home has been meticulously planned to ensure it provides accessible and functional spaces, high-spec equipment and menus that nourish – while forming staff teams that are specially trained to truly understand the conditions and dependencies of our residents. All things that make for a harmonious home environment.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our first residents into Silver Lodge and expanding the home this year and throughout 2024.”
