A Leicestershire care home has celebrated the end of its building process with a ‘topping out’ ceremony.
Mountview, which will be operated by Ideal Carehomes and home 66 residents, is due to open at the end of this year.
The home will benefit from advanced design features and environmentally friendly and sustainable aspects such as ground source heat pumps, underfloor heating and LED lighting.
Each resident will have their own accommodation with en-suite facilities and the home will encompass several communal areas including a cinema, coffee shop and hair salon.
Paul Farmer, managing director, said: “With a homely, safe and innovative environment and person-centred care for residents and a rewarding and supportive setting for staff, Mountview is sure to be a great place to live and a great place to work.”
The ceremony to celebrate Mountview care home reaching the end of its external build was attended by local Charnwood MP Edward Argar.
He visited the site of brand new residential and dementia care home, Mountview, as specialist care home developer, LNT Care Developments, completed the external construction of the building.
There will be other shared spaces which will be themed by the residents who live at the home, all surrounded by attractive landscaped gardens.
Argar said: “Not only will this impressive new development provide accommodation and care for many older people in our community, but it also brings new jobs and represents a significant investment in Charnwood.”
The home is due to open towards the end of 2017 and will hold a public open day where local residents can view the facilities and reserve rooms.
