A local care home, set to create 50 jobs, has welcomed on board the first of its new staff team – all keen to get started and make a big difference to people’s lives.
The 80-bedroom Edwalton Manor Care Home, on Landmere Lane, is now open and welcoming its first residents.
The home is built on the site of a former rose field and its in between a garden centre and a children’s nursery.
New Home Manager Catherine Bower has worked in healthcare and nursing for the last 35 years.
She said: “Our new home is simply stunning, and we cannot wait to put ourselves at the heart of Edwalton’s thriving local community so we can serve older people and their families.
“We have recruited a brand-new team for a brand-new service, and we feel very proud and privileged to be here.
“We will provide truly personalised, compassionate and life-affirming care at Edwalton Manor. This is a place where families can come to spend time with their loved ones and make precious new memories together.
“We are thrilled to be welcoming our first residents and settling them into their beautiful new home.”
Edwalton Homemaker Alegria Carlos has lived locally in The Meadows for the last 12 years and has worked as a carer for the last four years.
She said: “I cannot wait to make the residents feel at home and to build strong relationships with our residents and their families.
“There is a real sense of homeliness here already and this is helped by the fact we have such an incredible team to work with.”
