A new care home for elderly people is to open this month in Jordanstown, Newtownabbey, creating more than 100 new jobs.
The 80-bed Wood Green Healthcare centre, just off the Circular Road, represents an investment of almost £4 million.
The facility sits on a four-acre site just north of Belfast. It specialises in frail-elderly and dementia care and has state-of-the-art facilities, as well as a private landscaped garden for residents.
Supported by finance from Ulster Bank, the new facility opens this month and recruitment for a range of roles is ongoing.
Owner, Malachy Donnelly stated: “The care home’s approach is about much more than meeting the care needs of residents, it is about looking after the whole well-being of the individual, providing a luxury lifestyle that is both enriching and rewarding. Ulster Bank have supported in helping us achieve this.”
“This is a benchmark healthcare facility where residents receive the best care possible, as all care assistants and staff are trained extensively in-house, not only to comply with the required national standards, but to the Home’s own exacting standards,” he added.
