New Warrington care home is taking shape.

25-08-2015 | A new care home in Warrington is due to become water tight by the end of this month. The new residential care home in Norris Street overlooks Oford Park and will house up to 18 adults with physical disabilities in need of specialist care.

Construction started before Christmas after regional developer and care provider Krinvest secured a £1.4m loan from Triodos Bank to help finance this pioneering project. The property will be built to the latest requirements for sustainable sound and heat insulation and extra attention is being given to create a homely feel and comfortable surroundings for its residents.

Currently there is a shortage of places in Warrington for people coming out of hospital but still needing care and a place to rehabilitate. With sensory rooms and state of the art equipment the new care home will provide for this need, giving family and friends the opportunity to keep their loved ones close to home whilst they receive expert care.

The new Krinvest care home will deliver a high standard of specialist care and rehabilitation services, primarily to adults with physical disabilities. As the service develops it also plans to cater for those with more acute conditions, such as acquired brain injuries.

Managing Director of Krinvest, Dr Krishnan Satkunam says: "We are hugely excited to see this brand new facility taking shape. Our multidisciplinary team approach to care and rehabilitation will ensure close attention to the needs of the individuals in the setting, ensuring a smooth transition to more independent living. Paul Nicoll and the team at Triodos Bank have been great supporters to allow our vision for high quality care come closer to fruition."

Construction and fit out is due to complete by the end of this year. The new home is being developed on a brown field site of a long-disused church that had fallen into disrepair and which was cleared to make space for this new facility.

Paul Nicoll, Relationship Manager at Triodos Bank comments: "We are delighted to reach this milestone. Now the building is water tight, local residents are able to get a real feel of what this high quality, modern care home will look like. We believe that the development of this sustainable building -which brings a formerly derelict site into productive use- will greatly benefit both the residents in care and the local community."
