Development-led care home operator New Care has completed construction of Bridgewater Manor, a 71-bed care home in Worsley, Greater Manchester.

Worth £15 million, Bridgewater Manor is New Care’s ninth care facility in the UK. Reports suggest that it will create approximately 100 jobs from carers and nurses to hospitality, housekeeping, activities, maintenance and chefs.

The new care home will offer residential, nursing, dementia and respite care services, a New Care spokesperson told HealthInvestor UK.

It has 71 fully furnished bedrooms, each with a private en suite wet room, and a selection of communal lounges, dining rooms, and quiet reading rooms. It also has a nail bar, hairdresser, landscaped gardens, and outdoor terraces to the first floor.

Bridgewater Manor was officially opened by Salford’s ceremonial mayor, Cllr John Mullen on 9 November.

He said: “The motto of the city is ‘Salus Populi Suprema Lex’ which translates to ‘the welfare of the people is the highest law’ and after visiting Bridgewater Manor and meeting the New Care team, I can honestly say that this new care home will ensure the welfare of its residents will be its highest law too.

“The facility is stunning, but practical, and the attention to detail is impressive. The team is professional, dedicated, and passionate and the residents will no doubt enjoy a very high quality of care at Bridgewater Manor.”

New Care declined to provide details on funding or an estimated revenue growth following the opening of Bridgewater Manor.

As for future expansion, the New Care spokesperson said: “We do have plans to expand.  In 2022 we will open care facilities in Adel, Wilmslow and Lymm and in 2023 we will open a further three care facilities in Egerton, Grappenhall and Guiseley. We have no plans to commence M&A.”

Principal contractor McGoff Construction managed the building programme.
