WCS Care marks construction milestone for £7.5m home
A milestone has been reached in the construction of WCS Care’s Woodside Care Village in Warwick.
The roof has been completed and internal work has begun on the £7.5m, 72-bed care home, which is set to open in the autumn.
Christine Asbury, WCS Care’s Chief Executive, said: “In all WCS Care homes, our ambition is that every day is well lived for our residents – that means we provide plenty of opportunities for people to try something new and enjoy what they’ve always done.
“We’re really excited because we’re creating a home at Woodside Care Village that’s designed specifically to deliver this ambition for the people who will live there.
“And marking this construction milestone means we’re a step closer to welcoming the first residents through our doors in the autumn.”
The deluxe, village style development will feature family-scale households for six to seven people with en suite bedrooms, as well as a spa, salon, cinema and café, plus table tennis and a side-by-side bike for two with cycle track.
The home has been designed by local architects Robothams to encourage people to spend more time outdoors to benefit their health and wellbeing.
Features include external walkways and an open air courtyard that provide easy access to facilities, including a shop and launderette.
Technology at the home, which is being built by Coventry-based Deeley Construction, includes Person Centred Software’s Mobile Care Monitoring and Residents Gateway systems.
