Building has commenced on a new, state-of-the-art £15 million care facility on Liverpool Road in Formby.
Located on the site of the former Mayflower Industrial Estate, the 76 bed expertly designed, purpose-built care centre will create approximately 80 jobs.
It will be the seventh care facility for New Care, a rapidly growing development-led care home operator. The 4,000sqm home will provide an exceptional clinical offering, including residential, nursing and specialist dementia care services.
Renowned for its compassionate, person-centred care, New Care’s individual approach is evident in its focus on ‘enablement’ which involves working with each resident individually to maintain their health and wellbeing and ensure they remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.
Catering for the aspiring needs of its residents in Formby and the surrounding areas, each of the well-appointed and restful bedrooms will feature en-suite wet rooms, while the home itself will offer several stylish communal lounges, elegant dining rooms, spa assisted bathrooms and beautifully landscaped gardens. The impressive care 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.
CEO at New Care, Chris McGoff, comments: “We are delighted to have started work on site and are very much looking forward to introducing the New Care brand to Formby. The plans for our latest care facility are superb; we will deliver a sophisticated, modern, purpose-built home which offers high quality care with first class hotel-style services.”
Part of the McGoff Group, New Care works with its build partner, the multi-award winning principal contractor McGoff Construction, also part of the McGoff Group, throughout the entire design and construction process. Unique in its ability to acquire, design, build and operate, the McGoff Group provides a ‘one stop shop’ approach naturally de-risking the development process while adding value and enhancing growth.
Chris concludes: “It is a very exciting time for New Care with the company continuing to expand. Having recently opened care homes in Sale (Greater Manchester) and Lytham St Annes, and a further home due to open in Chester in early 2018, we are thrilled to have added Formby to our ever growing portfolio.”
Demolition on site has now commenced and construction of the care home is expected to be complete in early 2019.
With a vision to improve care standards across the UK, the new care facility will provide an additional support framework for the local health economy in Formby.
