Construction set to start on new care home in Worcester
Work is set to start on a new £8million care home in Perdiswell, Worcester, thanks to a partnership between healthcare property developer Prime and Sanders Senior Living. Sanders Senior Living are part of Runwood Homes which operate over 70 care homes in the UK. The site forms part of the former Perdiswell Park and Ride site on Droitwich Road.
The 74-bed The Belmont will be set over three floors. The building will include an internal courtyard, with kitchen and laundry facilities to service the home. All bedrooms will have en‐suite facilities with fully integrated wet rooms.
Space will be provided for kitchenettes for short-stay residents and for residents with early onset of dementia who are able to live more independently. A family lounge located on the first floor will be available as an independent lounge for these residents.
The care home will include a central Café where residents can bring friends and relatives, offering baked goods, tea and coffee. It will also include a hairdressers, a therapy room and landscaped gardens featuring vegetable patches and pergolas.
Bob Smaylen, Development Director for Prime said: “We’re excited to have reached this key milestone. We are delivering a high-quality development that will bring a new, premium care service into the local area and it means even more to Prime as it is a home town scheme. The investment will benefit the whole community as it will create much needed elderly residential care and a number of local jobs.”
