New Care, one of the UK’s fastest growing care home developers, has opened the doors to a ‘new generation’ care home in Worsley, worth circa £15m.
Located on Walkden Road, on the site of the former Cock pub and hotel, the new care facility features 71 fully furnished bedrooms, each with a private en suite wet room, plus a selection of communal lounges, dining rooms and quiet reading rooms. It also has a nail bar, hairdresser, landscaped gardens and outdoor terraces to the first floor.
Expertly designed to suit the specific plot, New Care worked meticulously with the architect and clinical team, and closely with the local authority, to deliver a state-of-the-art care facility that will provide outstanding residential, nursing, dementia and respite care services to residents of Salford.
Bridgewater Manor was officially opened by Salford’s Ceremonial Mayor, Cllr John Mullen.
He comments: “The motto of the city is ‘Salus Populi Suprema Lex’ which translates to ‘the welfare of the people is the highest law’ and after visiting Bridgewater Manor and meeting the New Care team, I can honestly say that this new care home will ensure the welfare of its residents will be its highest law too.
“The facility is stunning, but practical, and the attention to detail is impressive. The team is professional, dedicated and passionate and the residents will no doubt enjoy a very high quality of care at Bridgewater Manor.”
Dominic Kay, Chairman for New Care, adds: “It was a pleasure to welcome Cllr John Mullen to Bridgewater Manor to cut the red ribbon and officially declare the facility open. He enjoyed a preview tour of the care home and afterwards, spent time talking to the team, offering kind words, which was very much appreciated.”
Bridgewater Manor is New Care’s ninth care facility in the UK, and the first in Salford. The care home will create approximately 100 jobs in multiple disciplines, from carers and nurses to hospitality, housekeeping, activities, maintenance and chefs.
