A luxury care home in Sutton-in-Ashfield will create more than 50 new jobs for local people when it opens in April.
Kingfisher Court will provide high quality residential and dementia care for 66 elderly people. The home will open after the completion of an extensive induction and training programme for staff.
The home has been built by LNT Care Developments and will be run by Oakdale Care Group. Co-Founder of Oakdale, Chris Babington, said, “We are really keen to promote care as a positive career choice and hope to see the people who come to work at Kingfisher Court progress within their careers by providing great care to the people who will live with us”.
The new staff team will be led by home manager, Paul Quirk. “It is really exciting to set up and manage a new home with responsibility for recruiting a full team of new staff. Myself, Chris and everyone at Oakdale are incredibly passionate about care and I am certain we will find the right people to make Kingfisher Court a home from home for the people who live with us and, also a key part of the local community.”
