Suffolk care village to open up options for people with long term care plans?
A new facility catering for those paying for care is to be opened in Suffolk.
The Newmarket Journal reports that the Executive Care Group unit will encompass 97 bedrooms and 12 private apartments as well as its own library, bar and mini-cinema.
Furthermore, 92 new houses have been constructed on the site, 27 of which are affordable homes, as well as a small business park.
Several of Kentford Manor's services will be opened to the public, including a cafe and a hairdresser.
The development is to create more than 100 new jobs.
Manager Wendy Harvey told the publication: "It is a truly stunning facility. It is just amazing.
"We are looking for local people to come forward and apply for jobs as we really want this to be a proper community service."
This comes after pupils at a Basingstoke primary school named a new care home Pemberly House, taking inspiration from Jane Austen's famous novel Pride and Prejudice, reports the Basingstoke Observer.
