Take a look at an artists drawing of the new £3.8 million Barchester Care Home being built in Deeping St James, near Peterborough.
The 60 bedroom (with ensuite) care home will be operated by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest healthcare providers.
The care home will specialise in caring for sufferers of dementia, which is a topic we are very passionate about at MoonLotus. My own dad suffers from dementia and these specialised care services have had a huge impact on his life – and ours. We personally opted for his local home care kettering agency before he moved home to be nearer to my sister and her family. Fortunately for everyone, this agency also provided home care Thrapston services, making it a simple move.
To this day, my Dad is still using these services and his life has improved because of it. With his dementia getting increasingly worse as he ages, it has become even more important for him to leverage these services. Thankfully there are many services around to support it, including a future 60 bedroom care home with ensuites.
This care home, being built by construction company Bullock, will have very high building standards, excellent energy standards to be efficient and save energy, it’ll also benefit the local community with a proposed 100 jobs to be available.
Kenneth Mackenzie, development director at Barchester Healthcare said: “We are committed to providing person-centred care and designing living spaces that are second to none for older people and those living with dementia. We are pleased to be collaborating with all our partners – Bullock, Cinnamon Care Capital and Larkpoint – to deliver a high-quality home that will not only benefit those needing personalised care, but will also significantly boost the local economy through job creation.”
This care home is a wonderful project for the local community, not only the elderly and dementia sufferers, but also their families and the jobs it will provide.
