Ambitious care home construction project close to completion

Work to increase capacity at a popular Lanarkshire care home as part of a £2.8 million project has reached its final stages following the completion of a new 33 bedroom unit.

Construction work is now complete on the new unit, Willowbank House, at Lornebank Care Centre near Hamilton. The finishing decorative touches to Willowbank House are now being made in readiness for the first residents, who are expected to move into the new unit when it opens later this year.

Alongside the construction of the new unit, existing facilities at Lornebank have been significantly upgraded to refresh and revitalise the home’s bedrooms as well as the communal areas.  All bedrooms now benefit from the luxury of en-suite bathrooms and the kitchen as well as the laundry room have been completely renovated and refitted.

Residents will soon be able to socialise, play games and relax in the new on-site café which will offer a varied menu of drinks and snacks.

The entrance has been refurbished, creating a new light and bright space that will provide guests and residents alike with a warm welcome, and a new garden will provide a bright open space.

The expansion and refurbishment project has been a collaborative effort between designers and residents, with the latter consulted during the design process and given the opportunity to vote on the fabric, colour scheme, and texture of curtains and furniture in the new bedrooms and communal areas.

Samuel Maierovits, Managing Director at Hudson Healthcare, said: “This has been one of the more ambitious programmes in our company’s history and we are delighted that it is close to fruition. Demand for care home space is high and is expected to rise further, which is why we’re pleased to be able to provide more space, choice, and quality of care for people in the area.”
