Up to 40 jobs will be created with the opening of a care home in Peterborough.
Anchor, a not-for-profit provider of housing and care to older people, is behind the construction of a 64-bed home in Clayburn Court, in Hampton.
“It will be lovely to have the home so close to the school and the leisure centre, bringing all ages in the community together.Cllr Marion Sharp
The new home is planned to open in the autumn and Anchor is looking to recruit more than 40 staff in the next month and more than 80 people once the home is fully occupied.
Vice-chair of Hampton Parish Council, Councillor Marion Sharp, joined Anchor’s operations director, Tim Seal, and LNT Construction staff, to celebrate the final roof tile being placed on the home.
Cllr Sharp was also given a tour of the home, which includes a hair and beauty salon, quiet and social lounges on each floor, a café and landscaped gardens.
Cllr Sharp said: “I feel residents will be very happy and well cared for here.
“It will be lovely to have the home so close to the school and the leisure centre, bringing all ages in the community together.”
Mr Seal said: “This is a proud moment for Anchor and it’s wonderful to celebrate this milestone in the construction of what will be a fantastic care home.
“It’s exciting to see how Clayburn Court is developing and to show everyone what the home will be like when it is finished.”
Christine Cooper, managing director for LNT Construction, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Anchor on another fantastic new project.
“Clayburn Court is a high-quality care home in a brilliant location, designed to meet the needs of older people and dementia residents with state-of-the-art facilities and en-suite wet-rooms throughout.
“This is our second development for Anchor, and we are proud to be working together to bring people happiness in later life.”
