The Civic Mayor of Kirklees helped mark a milestone in the build of Meridian Healthcare’s new Denby Dale care home in West Yorkshire.

The Denby Dale, a new 47 bed care home in the village of Denby Dale has reached a key milestone in the development with the topping out of the building.

Topping out is a traditional milestone in the construction of a building and usually marks the completion of the roof or other significant stage in the build. Mayor of Kirklees, Cllr Ken Smith joined Meridian’s Alan Firth CEO, Holly Smedley, Manager and Susan Firth MD on site to mark the final stages of the care home build including the completion of the roof and removal of scaffolding.

The Denby Dale home will feature two restaurants, a hairdressing salon and a gym for the convenience of its residents. Situated in the heart of the village, residents can walk to the village shops and can remain very much part of the local community in Denby Dale.

The care home’s focus is on individuals who are finding it difficult to cope at home or who require a little extra help with day-to-day activities. The home will have well-appointed suites and junior suites and is expected to open in November 2014.

The Denby Dale is the latest and sixth care home in Meridian Healthcare’s ‘Premiere’ branded group of homes. The Premiere homes offer services and accommodation akin to an up market hotel whilst retaining a homely and welcoming feel.
