Momentum is building for a new £10m care home being developed by health and social care providers N. Notaro Homes in Bridgwater, Somerset.
Internal designs have now been finalised, with the new Italian-named home scheduled to open in October 2016. It will be called Casa Di Lusso, which translates as ‘House of Luxury’.
The home will feature nine living areas, each with their own kitchenette, 66 ensuite bedrooms and 22 care suites with ensuite. A garden room and sun room will bring the outside in, with large windows allowing natural light to flood in.
Other facilities include a cinema room and a modern, elegant cafe. The home will also feature something that in recent years has become a bit of a trademark for new homes built by Notaro Homes: a petting farm. The farm will be home to a number of animals, from rabbits to alpacas, and provides residents with a great distraction and companionship.
The home, being built by The Midas Group is due to open in October of this year and is currently five weeks ahead of schedule. It will provide the surrounding area with more than 140 jobs in full operation.
This will be the 11th home owned by family-owned business, which has been operating across the south-west for more than 30 years.
Sharon Warren, PR Manager at N. Notaro Homes, said: “We are proud to be bringing a care home with all the latest in care home technology and design to Bridgwater, coupled with great facilities, activities, a strong staff team who receive continuous training and development and wonderful home cooked food. We are expecting this home to really champion what great dementia care is all about in the area.”
