Work begins on £13.5 million care home in Cannock
Work has begun on a new £13.5 million care home for 89 residents in Cannock.
Initial work has started on the former County Grounds site to build the 'Staffordshire Specialist Care Centre' which will also cater for people with dementia, nursing care and a complex unit for behaviours that challenge.
When complete the three-storey care home, which is expected to welcome the first residents in February 2022, will include facilities such as cinemas, café/bar, sensory rooms, hair and nail salon, activity and computer rooms and a private dining room.
Cheri Law, the director of operations for Restful Homes Group, said: “We are delighted that work has begun at Staffordshire Specialist Care Centre, not least because this impressive development reflects our commitment to improving the provision of complex needs in the area.
"Having worked in the sector for over 20 years I am truly excited at this new project which marks a quantum leap in the quality of care home accommodation for the older people of Cannock and the wider Staffordshire region.”
Steven Hodgson, contracts manager at Wildgoose Construction, said: “I am looking forward to once again working with Restful Homes Group here at Cannock after working closely with them on their new 84 bed care home and hospital at Stonnall, which we completed in March of this year.
“We have undertaken many projects for Restful Homes and have developed a mutual understanding of their expectations and quality standards required in their care and extra care homes.”
