The Mayor of Rochdale, Councillor Carol Wardle, last week visited the site of Beechwood Lodge Care Home as LNT Construction and Berrycroft Care celebrated a landmark stage in the build with a Topping Out Ceremony.
Beechwood Lodge has been designed and constructed by LNT Construction on Meadow View Road in Rochdale. On its completion, the 64 bed care home will provide the area with an entirely new standard of care provision for older people. The home will be operated by Berrycroft Care who already have long established care homes in the Greater Manchester area.
Richard Odell, Managing Director of Berrycroft Care said; “Everyone here at Berrycroft Care is really excited to see Beechwood Lodge taking shape and the Topping Out ceremony brings us one step closer to the opening of the home. We are really looking forward to showcasing the great facilities we have on offer when the home opens – it is a great home in a great location that will create over 50 jobs for local people. We are sure it will soon become a key part of the local community.”
The Mayor of Rochdale, Councillor Carol Wardle said: “It was lovely to take a tour around the home and learn about the facilities on offer. I am sure Beechwood Lodge’s residents will be very happy in their new home when it opens in November.”
The luxurious home from home facility will provide residential and dementia care for 64 older people with 100% en-suite accommodation, landscaped sensory gardens and its own hairdressing salon.
The home is due to open in early November 2014 and will hold a public open day on Sunday 9 November from 10.30am-3pm where local residents can view the facilities and reserve rooms.
