A new 60-bed residential home equipped to care for people living with Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is being built in Burton Waters near Lincoln.
The Barchester Healthcare care home will open to residents early next year, offering 24-hour care and creating around 100 new jobs ranging from carers and nurses to hospitality staff and administrators.
The home will have a dedicated area called a Memory Lane Community, which will provide care for people with Dementia.
All residents will have their own ensuite bathrooms, meals and daily activities.
Councillor Irmgard Parrott, Chairman of the West Lindsey District Council, was invited to break the ground of the new care home in celebration.
She was joined by Barchester’s Regional Operational Director, Paul Draper, the home’s General Manager Helen Wilson, and members of the construction team from Castleoak.
Helen Wilson said: “I very much look forward to when our home is open and is part of your community. I hope to meet with the many local groups who we can become involved with in the coming months.”
Paul Draper, Barchester Healthcare’s Regional Operational Director, said: “We’re very excited about the construction of our new care home in Burton Waters. Our future residents are going to really enjoy living in such a beautiful and nautical setting overlooking the marina.”
