Construction starts this month on £10m care home

Notaro Care Homes, a large scale health care provider across the south west, employing over 600 people, are set to start construction of their 12th care home on a 5 acre site at Bridgwater, Somerset later this month.

The home in Bower Lane was given planning approval by Sedgemoor District Council over a year ago to help facilitate the growing need for more beds for those living with dementia. 

The home will be built by locally based Midas Construction, which has been involved in two other projects for Notaro.

The home will feature a sun toom, cafe and large communal areas. There will be 66 ensuite bedrooms and 22 close care apartments. All rooms will be individually decorated and will have under floor heating, intelligent movement sensors and nurse call system.
The home will also feature a petting farm, a signature feature at Notaro’s other purpose built care homes and will be home to alpacas and other small petting animals.
The home will open its doors in October 2016, which will follow a recruitment campaign of employing up to 120 staff to run and operate the home.
