Award winning care provider, Greensleeves Care, is near completion of a 66-bed, luxury residential and dementia care home in Ipswich.
Henley House, which builder LNT has taken just over to complete by working throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, is due to open in September.
Henley House is a replacement for the existing Thornbank service. Thornbank is to be sold after its residents are transferred to the new home.
Paul Newman, CEO of Greensleeves Care, said: “Greensleeves Care has always enjoyed an enviable reputation in Ipswich due to the success and popularity of our home, Thornbank. Henley House allows us to double the number of residents we can support in a state-of-the art, purpose-built care setting.
“The new home will also create dozens of new jobs, across a variety of roles, expanding our contribution to the local economy. We are keen to hear from people living in the local community who are looking for fulfilling careers within care. Whilst our environments are second to none, it’s our staff team who make our homes the best places to live. We are looking for people who really want to make a difference.”
Henley House’s facilities will include a cinema, sky bar, tea room, garden room, several sociable lounges and dining areas. All bedrooms will offer en-suite facilities, smart TVs, telephone point and Wi-Fi.
