PNP MM 0408A new care home in Manningtree has officially opened its doors after receiving significant funding support from Clydesdale Bank.

Operated by Stour Valley Care Group, the 60 bed Mistley Manor will employ 100 people.  The company received a seven figure funding package from Clydesdale Bank to complete the new home.

The deal was completed by Richard Chapman and Adam Walker from Clydesdale Bank’s Business and Private Banking Centre in Bury St. Edmunds.

The new home has been built on the site of a former eight-bed care home in Manningtree. It will include 48 en suite bedrooms and 12 penthouse suites. Four supported-care bungalows are also opening next to the home, and will operate as Mistley Grove.

The new home boasts its own hair and beauty salons, cinema room, private library and bar as well as relaxing lounge areas. The first floor is fitted with specialist facilities such as a ‘living journey’ corridor designed to stimulate the memories of residents suffering from dementia.

Mistley Manor’s official opening was recently attended by residents and their families, staff, the construction team and representatives from Clydesdale Bank.

Mike Volf, Managing Director of Stour Valley Care, said: “I’m enormously proud of Mistley Manor and the high quality accommodation and services it will provide. As a fourth generation care business, we have drawn on our vast experience to create an environment that will ensure all our residents enjoy the highest possible quality of life.

“Clydesdale Bank’s knowledgeable team has played a key role in helping us to deliver our vision. We are grateful to them for their support and advice.”

Richard Chapman, Head of Clydesdale Bank’s Bury St Edmunds Business and Private Banking Centre, said: “Mistley Manor is a high quality residential home, which will be a welcome addition to care home provision in the Tendring area.

“We are proud to be funding the growth of a successful local business like Stour Valley Care Group.

“This project will have a positive impact for the local community and economy as it will deliver important services and a significant number of jobs.”
