The Mayor of Charnwood, Councillor Pauline Ranson, has officially opened Ideal Carehomes’ Mountview care home in Rothley, Leicestershire.
The three-storey residential and dementia care home, which has been built by LNT Care Developments, will create 50 jobs for the local area.
Home Manager Sue Shaw said: “Watching the home being built has been a great experience but the final product has completely exceeded any expectations.
“The home is wonderful and my staff team are extremely proud. We have enjoyed showing people around and the reaction from the local community has been great.
“Mountview will be a great place to live and work and we can’t wait to welcome our first residents to make our lovely building a home.”
Mountview includes 66 bedrooms with en-suite wet rooms, a coffee shop, garden room, library, cinema, hair and beauty salon, landscaped gardens and English tea room complete with balcony areas.
Construction of the home, which will provide residential and dementia care at an all-inclusive price, got under way at the beginning of the year.
Mayor Ranson: “Mountview is a very impressive building – it is like a five star hotel and will not only provide a comfortable home, but also a vibrant lifestyle for future residents.
“We are very pleased to welcome Ideal Carehomes to Rothley and it was a pleasure to meet the staff and look around the home. I am looking forward to visiting again once the first residents have settled in.”
