A new £15m care home in Formby that will create around 90 jobs is just two months away from completion.
More than 30 contractors are on site at the facility in Liverpool Road, that will be known as Formby Manor, with external brickwork and roof tiling now complete and the structure watertight. Now work continues to ensure it opens as scheduled in June.
The care facility is the latest for New Care, one of the UK’s fastest growing development-led care home operators and part of the award-winning McGoff Group.
When complete, it will offer “person-centred care” and an clinical offering, including residential, nursing and specialist dementia care services, in a safe and comfortable environment. A number of advanced care services will be provided including additional acoustic monitoring and silent call bells.
Each of the bedrooms will feature a private en-suite wet room, while the home itself will offer several communal lounges, dining rooms, spa assisted bathrooms and landscaped gardens.
The facility will also boast a hair salon and nail bar, and with its own dedicated hospitality team, the facility will provide high end hotel-style services that ensure continued quality of life and enjoyment for residents, including fine dining, concierge services and a busy and varied programme of activities and events.
New Care chief executive, Chris McGoff, said: “Formby Manor is an expertly designed, purpose-built care facility that will provide first class care services in a stylish setting. We remain committed to improving the standards of care across the UK, and are fully confident that Formby Manor will be a much welcomed addition to the Formby area.”
