New Dewsbury care home to create 70 jobs

A brand new purpose-built care home will open its doors in May, creating up to 70 full and part-time jobs for the West Yorkshire economy, thanks to a £3 million development package from Yorkshire Bank.

When complete, Oak Park care home will host a residential, dementia and dedicated nursing unit. Serving the needs of the community around West Yorkshire, Oak Park, part of Darrington Healthcare, will contain 66 beds.

The new home is being built on the site of a derelict council building, and will cost £4 million in total. It’s the third care home Darrington Healthcare has built in the region and the group is currently looking at other sites in West Yorkshire.

Eric Dixon, managing director for Darrington Healthcare, said: “Oak Park’s modern facilities and structured care are designed to enable us to provide top quality services to all residents at all stages of their stay with us.”

Darren Owers, head of at Yorkshire Bank’s Business and Private Banking centre in Leeds said: “Darrington Healthcare has been providing high-quality care for the elderly for more than five years and looks set to continue to do so with the opening of the new care home in Dewsbury.

“It is extremely rewarding to know that through our funding, there will be a real and positive impact for the local community and economy, through the creation of a significant number of jobs.”
