A £4m care home in Huddersfield will create 50 jobs for the local community.
Sycamore Park Care Home, which is scheduled to open in the autumn, is Darrington Health Care’s fourth care home in Yorkshire.
Manager Jackie Foxton, who is leading recruitment at the home along with Deputy Manager Angela Napier, said: “The quality of the staff make all the difference to a care home, and one of my first jobs is to hand-pick the right team to care for our residents.
“We will be looking for people who are committed to providing a high level of care and helping our residents to live well to their full potential, and who are keen to take up the training and career opportunities we can offer.
“I’ve worked for large care home operators in the past and I am thrilled to be working for a smaller, privately owned company where care is a real priority, and to have the freedom to manage a home and deliver care the way it should be delivered.
“Darrington’s other homes have become a real part of the community, where residents leave happy lives, and we intend to make Sycamore Park just the same.”
Sycamore Park will include en-suite bedrooms, a beauty salon, cinema, cafe, bar and multi-activity room, plus landscaped gardens, and countryside views from its extra-large rooms on the upper floor.
