Dearne facility to expand Yorkshire care home options
A new care facility is being built in Dearne, which is sure to expand the options for people choosing a care home in South Yorkshire.
The three-storey, specially tailored facility will be home to 48 residents in total - 18 in residential care and 30 for people with dementia, reports the South Yorkshire Times.
Residents at the new care home will enjoy en-suite accommodation, a hairdressing salon, floor-to-ceiling windows and landscaped courtyard gardens once it opens in August.
Completion of the care home will also create around 50 jobs in the area, with care assistants, kitchen staff and night manager positions to be filled.
The facility will be run by Ideal Care Homes, owned by Lawrence Tomlinson, who told the newspaper that he was "thrilled" to see the roof being place on the construction.
"I'm very familiar with the needs of the local community and I am keen that local residents all benefit from having such a first-rate facility on their doorstep, at prices they can afford," he said.
This comes after news that the options for older people choosing a care home in South Yorkshire have been widened by the opening of a new housing complex in Goldthorpe, according to the South Yorkshire Star.
