Work starts at Trafford Waters to bring care home with specialist dementia care to TraffordCity
The construction of the new homes and care facility being developed by Montpelier Estates follows on from L&Q recently starting on site with their affordable homes scheme also at Trafford Waters.
Work has begun to start building an innovatively designed care home, with specialist on-site dementia care at Trafford Waters in TraffordCity.
Trafford Council approved the plans for the 85-bed care home earlier this year, which will be delivered in partnership by specialist healthcare provider Montpelier Estates, investment partner Octopus Real Estate and waterside regeneration specialists Peel Waters.
Tailored dementia care
The home will offer tailored dementia care and amenities for later living, with a range of on-site facilities to encourage socialising and community building in a comfortable, safe, and supportive space.
The new residential development at Trafford Waters will include an on-site bistro café, hair salon, cinema, and sensory rooftop garden for residents to enjoy and relax in.
Space for the community
There will also be plenty of spaces created within the development for community events, relaxation and exercise to look after the mental and physical wellness of future residents. Several parts of the facility will also be open to the wider public to encourage further interaction and community building within the emerging Trafford Waters neighbourhood.
The care home forms part of the first phase of 350 residential properties being built at Trafford Waters. It follows on from L&Q also recently breaking ground to start the delivery of their affordable homes scheme also at Trafford Waters.
Both the care home and the affordable homes scheme form a key part of Peel Waters’ wider vision and plans for their Trafford Waters neighbourhood. Peel secured outline planning permission for the waterside development in TraffordCity and it is projected to create 3,000 new jobs and 3,000 new homes, in addition to a new on-site primary school, hotel and 20 acres of open space to improve health, wellbeing and access to nature.
