A NEW care home overlooking Orford Park will create 30 new jobs and house up to 18 adults in need of specialist care.
Construction on the facility on Norris Street began before Christmas and it is due to open in January 2016.
The unit will be dedicated to individuals with a broad spectrum of neurological conditions and will be one of only a handful of non-aversive community initiatives nationally, and aims to enable people to return to a community setting.
Currently there is a shortage of places in Warrington for people coming out of hospital but still needing care and a place to rehabilitate.
With sensory rooms and state of the art equipment the new care home will provide for this need, giving family and friends the opportunity to keep their loved ones close to home whilst they receive expert care.
Managing Director of Krinvest, Dr Krishnan Satkunam said: “We are hugely excited to see this brand new facility taking shape.
“Our multidisciplinary team approach to care and rehabilitation will ensure close attention to the needs of the individuals in the setting, ensuring a smooth transition to more independent living.”
The property will be built to the latest requirements for sustainable sound and heat insulation and extra attention is being given to create a homely feel and comfortable surroundings for its residents.
Construction and fit out is due to complete by the end of this year. The new home is being developed on a brown field site of a long-disused church that had fallen into disrepair and which was cleared to make space for this new facility.
Care provider Krinvest secured a £1.4m loan from Triodos Bank to help finance the project.
