Hadrian Healthcare On Site at Wetherby

Construction work is underway on the new Hadrian Healthcare Group residential nursing care home in Wetherby.

Completion of the £6 million development at St James’ Street, formerly the site of a NHS health centre, is expected in January 2013.

Jas Gill, managing director of Hadrian Healthcare Group said: “The development will create 60 jobs and we will open for residents in January next year.

“There will be 59 bedrooms, including a specially designed suite for people with dementia, plus eight self-contained independent living suites for residents who need minimal care but benefit from living in a supported environment.

“We provide five star care and accommodation and we seek to enrich the lives of all our residents, encouraging them to continue being part of community life. 

“Our staff have significant experience and we invest in training on an on-going basis which is key to providing the highest quality of person-centred care.”

Homes are luxurious, spacious and vibrant. The Wetherby home is one of Hadrian Healthcare’s Manor House Living developments and will have a library, garden, cinema, hair salon, ballroom, bistro, newspaper and sweet shop, residents’ bar and bowling green. There will also be on site car parking.

Wetherby councillor John Procter said: “The Manor House Living development will provide residents with a wide range of facilities and services.

“They are also committed to using local suppliers.

“This is a much needed development in Wetherby, right in the centre of the town.”
The architect for the development is ARP Design, the contractor is Walter Thompson and  the interior designer is Bernhart Interiors.

This will be the ninth care home opened by Hadrian Healthcare Group since 2008. The company currently employs over 500 staff and has its head office in Gateshead.
