Planning permission has been granted for a new care home in Worcester. The 74-bed scheme will be built on the former Park and Ride site in Perdiswell, Worcester.

 

Prime secured the land last year and has worked closely with care home operator Sanders Senior Living to develop the plans.

 

The 74-bed care home 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 used 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 are very pleased that planning permission has been granted. Using our expertise in community care facilities we have developed plans for a care home in Worcester which address the undersupply of high-quality care home places in the area. We know that Sanders Senior Living will deliver a first-class care home. In doing so, not only will they create much needed elderly residential care, but also a number of local jobs.”
