The Mayor of Wesham, Councillor Linda Nulty, described a new care home in Wesham as `exactly what the village needs` as she performed the official opening ceremony on Friday.
The 66-bed Pear Tree House Care Home has been built on the site of the former Wesham Park Hospital and Linda said she had kept a close eye on its construction since planning approval was granted.
She said: `This home is a wonderful facility that is creating jobs for local people and is making excellent use of the site. It is exactly what Wesham needs.`
Around 60 jobs are being created at the home which makes use of eco-friendly technology such as solar panels and ground source heat pumps.
Home manager Charlene Porter said `The home is industry-leading in every way, from the bespoke individual-centred care to the design of the building.
`The brand-new building has been designed to include everything residents need to live a busy and comfortable life, from accessible sensory gardens to spacious en-suite wet rooms and even a hair salon on site.
`The home has been thoughtfully and tastefully decorated throughout, so the residents can feel truly at home.`
Pear Tree House Care Home is part of the Danforth Care Home Group and also includes amenities such as a cinema, library, coffee shops, sensory garden, and an on-site beauty and hair salon.
