of the Manorhey Care Centre in Urmston, Greater Manchester, has recently completed a £1.6 million project at the home.

The project was the addition of new accommodation, officially unveiled by Stretford and Urmston MP Kate Green and resident Milly Mitten, aged 84 from Urmston.

Now complete, Manorhey boasts an additional 20 beds, taking the home from 63 beds to 83 beds, catering for the increasing need for quality nursing, residential and dementia care in the region.

Milly says: “It was an honour to be asked to officially open the new accommodation at Manorhey.  I have only been at the home for a few weeks but have settled in straight away.  The staff are all exceptionally kind and have cared for me so well since I arrived.  Manorhey is a lovely home.”

Kate said: “It was great to visit Manorhey, open the new accommodation with Milly and have a chat with some of the residents.

“The new space looks excellent and is a great addition to the dementia care on offer in Greater Manchester.”

With Manorhey Care Centre regularly achieving 100% occupancy, New Care made the decision to acquire an additional parcel of land neighbouring the home to cater for the increasing demand for beds.

The 20 new beds will serve the home well, enhancing its exceptional clinical offering, including residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, and positioning Manorhey as the leading Care Centre in Urmston.

Furthermore, a £200,000 refurbishment within the original building is 60% complete, ensuring the highest quality environment is maintained throughout Manorhey Care Centre.  This is a delicate logistical operation as the work is underway while clients remain in the home, but will include an updated kitchen with blast chillers, now required in all care homes.  Manorhey Care Centre will also boast an array of new services, designed specifically for the home by its hospitality and client experience manager, Kay Johnson, meeting the most rigorous of standards.

In recent weeks, Manorhey Care Centre has already welcomed 11 new residents, including Milly, testament to the home’s reputation for the provision of affordable quality care.

Chris McGoff, CEO of New Care Projects, says: “Manorhey Care Centre was our first home built in 2010 and it is a great achievement that four years in we have had to add beds to the premises to ensure the pent up demand for our unrivalled care is catered for.

“At Manorhey Care Centre, the team specialises in complex clinical care and we offer an affordable service, which not only represents excellent value for money but is received by residents in purpose-built surroundings.

“We are determined that all our residents are treated with respect, that they receive a second to none service and their dignity is at the heart of all we do, from which we have forged a formidable reputation.”

Manorhey Care Centre, part of New Care Projects, offers residential, dementia and nursing care in an expertly designed, purpose built environment.  Whether it is long-term care, respite, convalescence or simply a home from home and welcoming place to reside, the team at Manorhey Care Centre strives for excellence and seeks to always provide the best levels of care.
