ASTATE-OF-THEART care home has opened pro­vid­ing ‘vi­tal res­i­den­tial and de­men­tia care’.

Bar­ley View, the first pur­pose-built care home un­der Whit­worth Care, is open for res­i­dents mov­ing over from the cur­rent home.

The ex­ist­ing Sunny Side care home has now closed after more than 30 years, and res­i­dents have moved into the newly built and fully fur­nished fa­cil­ity for those need­ing res­i­den­tial care and for those liv­ing with de­men­tia.

Bar­ley View is a modern, pur­pose-built res­i­den­tial care home fa­cil­ity of­fer­ing com­pas­sion­ate, pro­fes­sional and dig­ni­fied care in a com­fort­able and homely set­ting.

The build­ing was de­signed and equipped to meet a wide range of needs, the home’s team of ex­pe­ri­enced care staff work closely with res­i­dents and their fam­i­lies to pro­vide a truly per­son-cen­tred ser­vice.

The £3.6 mil­lion fa­cil­ity was de­vel­oped by Cal­ico Homes, built by Ring Stones Main­te­nance and Con­struc­tion, and fur­nished by Cal­ico In­te­ri­ors.

Ar­ranged over two lev­els, the 28-bed­room home is split into two 14-bed com­mu­ni­ties named Wil­low Lane and For­est Grove and has been care­fully cre­ated to meet the needs of older peo­ple and those liv­ing with de­men­tia.

The build­ing, which took 17 months to build, of­fers res­i­dents pri­vate bed­room spa­ces all com­plete with en-suites.

Bar­ley View also con­tains an as­sisted bath­room and an in­dus­trial kitchen fur­bished to a high qual­ity to serve break­fast, lunch and din­ner to the res­i­dents.

The home looks out onto the Whit­worth land­scape and a gar­den that is fin­ished with wild flow­ers and raised flower beds.

Cal­ico Homes’ Gar­den Main­te­nance team will take over the space, car­ry­ing out main­te­nance and gar­den­ing work.

Suzy Knowles, di­rec­tor at Whit­worth Care, said: “We can’t wait to move our cur­rent res­i­dents in and wel­come new res­i­dents to their home.

“Bar­ley View is a beau­ti­ful build­ing in a lovely set­ting and we’re sure it will be re­ally well re­ceived from both staff and res­i­dents.”

She con­tin­ued: “We’d like to thank all the teams that worked col­lab­o­ra­tively to­gether over the process to fin­ish Bar­ley View and bring this amaz­ing fa­cil­ity to peo­ple in the lo­cal and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties that may ever need our ser­vices.”

Whit­worth Care are still look­ing for a num­ber of roles to be filled and if this is some­thing you’d be in­ter­ested in, please visit www.cal­i­co­jobs.org.uk
