Danforth Care Homes Expands Portfolio with Opening of 8th Care Home Facility

Primrose House Care Home has had its grand opening in East Riding, with the ribbon cut by their first two residents. The opening marks the 8th facility in the Danforth portfolio, and the first in East Riding.

The opening is set to create 60 new jobs for the local community, all with permanent contracts. In addition, each of the jobs will also come with a fully funded DBS check and full support to aid staff in completing an NCQ qualification.

Purpose-built by LNT the care facility for Danforth Care Group will be home to 66 residents, who can enjoy amenities such as an on-site hair and beauty salon and sensory garden, as well as a café bar, library, and cinema.

Home Manager Andi Barker says “We are so thrilled to have had the opportunity to open Primrose House with a great grand opening ceremony. The home will be a huge asset to the whole Brough community, as well as the surrounding community of the Humber.”

“We have a highly experienced team here at Primrose House, and supporting our residents in leading meaningful and comfortable lives is always our priority.

“We take a person-centred approach to care, which means our residents are recognised as individuals, and their care is delivered in a personalised way, meaning dignity and respect is always upheld. We offer residency for people who simply need extra support and security, as well as offering the highest level of support for residents with dementia” says Alex Brook.

In addition, the home has been built with the environment in mind, with several environmentally friendly initiatives throughout. The home comes with an A energy-rating and a carbon-free status, meaning it operates without gas. Instead, ground source heating technology has been built under the site for underfloor and water heating, as well as air-cooling systems, and 80% of the roof of the home is covered in solar panels for electricity generation, with an on-site battery to store excess energy for use at another time.

“We are so proud to be an A rated and carbon free care home,” says Andi Barker. “It’s important we both look after the people in our community and the environment we live in, and Primrose House is taking every step to ensure both are cared for.”
