A family-run business has unveiled a state-of-the-art care facility in Worksop, signalling the completion of the first phase of a multi-million pound investment to create the first new care village to be launched in the town.
Pioneered by Horizon Care, Greenacres Grange, will provide accommodation to support individuals with both short and long term care needs. The centre will house four custom care units, which will each support up to 20 individuals and deliver specialist care provisions to support a range of care needs including assisted living, dementia support, rehabilitation and specialist support services aimed at helping individuals with complex care needs to live as independently as possible.Horizon has created a hydrotherapy suite, as well as a range of facilities including a beauty parlour, café and music room. Outside there is a sensory garden, creating a relaxing environment which residents can enjoy all year round.
Situated close to Bassetlaw District Hospital. Greenacres Grange will create up to 200 full and part time jobs and marks the beginning of a multi-million pound investment into Worksop by Horizon Care.
Aiming to replicate the success achieved at sites in Sheffield and Dinnington, all of which have been rated as “Good” by the Care Quality Commission, the company believes its unique approach to the delivery of care will not only help to reduce pressure on existing primary care facilities within Worksop, but will crucially help individuals to enjoy a high quality of life in safe and comfortable surroundings.
Laura Higginbottom, managing director, Horizon Care, said: “The opening of Greenacres Grange marks the completion of the first phase of what we hope will become our flagship care village. We have built our reputation within the care industry upon providing tailored accommodation, resulting in a safe, comfortable environment which is capable of meeting the needs of individuals with very different care requirements, whilst enabling patients to live as independently as possible.
“We recognised there was an acute shortage of high quality care provisions within Worksop and we wanted use our skills, knowledge and expertise to help individuals living within the town.”
