Recruitment Starts For £6m Dementia Care Home
Kingsley Healthcare has started recruiting for its landmark £6m dementia care home in Partington. The roof is now on the 62-bedroom home on a former paint factory site in Wood Lane and Bolton-based contractor Seddon is ready to start on interior fittings.
Regional director Ryk Izycki said: "Our first priority is to appoint a home manager on a very good package who will then oversee the recruitment process." Up to 100 jobs will be available from nurses and carers to domestics, gardeners and chefs. The home's facilities will include a cinema, library, hairdresser's, tea room and sun room; all bedrooms will be ensuite. There will be space for training as the home - to be called Four Oaks in recognition of its four wings - becomes the centre of Kingsley's training programmes.
Mr Izycki said: "Kingsley plans to continue to expand in the north west. "We are eyeing other potential sites in the area for developments that will create further jobs and assist regeneration.." Four show bedrooms will be ready for inspection in May and the family-owned builder is on target to hand over the building for a July opening.
