Build­ing of new care home for el­derly brings jobs boost

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News Brief -

AROUND 60 new jobs are set to be cre­ated at a new care home in Bourne.

Pri­ory Group, a mental health­care provider, is bring­ing its ex­per­tise to Lin­colnshire for the first time with the open­ing of Abbey Court, a care home for older peo­ple.

The pur­pose-built nurs­ing home will have beds for 88 res­i­dents need­ing nurs­ing or dementia nurs­ing care. The home will be un­der the lead­er­ship of man­ager Peter Bar­low.

Care will be pro­vided in sin­gle, en­suite ac­com­mo­da­tion and there will be lounges and din­ing ar­eas and a se­cure, en­closed land­scaped gar­den.

There will be a spe­cial­ist dementia unit, in­clud­ing a ‘rem­i­nis­cence room’ and planned ac­tiv­i­ties for res­i­dents, with vis­its by pro­fes­sion­als such as GPs, chi­ropodists, op­ti­cians and even hair­dressers.

The build­ing is ex­pected to be com­plete in mid-July and then the home will go through a reg­is­tra­tion process with the Care Qual­ity Com­mis­sion.

A spokes­woman said the fa­cil­ity should be up and run­ning be­fore the end of the year.
