Ideal Carehomes

Elworth Grange, Sandbach, Cheshire

Ideal Carehomes is set to open its latest care home development in Sandbach, Cheshire, in spring.

Elworth Grange will be the provider’s first care home in the county and brings its portfolio of homes to 20.

The £10m home will feature a cinema room, garden rooms, a tea shop, gardens and sky bar.

Stacey Linn, director of Ideal Carehomes, said: ‘We are very excited to be opening our first luxury care home in Cheshire and are keen to hear from people living in the local community who are looking for fulfilling careers within care.

‘Whilst our environments are second to none, it’s our staff team who make our homes the best places to live.’

Oakland Care

Lambwood Heights, Chigwell, Essex

Oakland Care has opened its fourth home with the launch of 73-bed Lambwood Heights in Chigwell, Essex.

The home will provide residential, nursing, memory and respite care and feature a cinema, bar and bistro, hair and beauty salon, lounges, a private dining room, garden room and library.

Joanne Balmer, Oakland Care chief executive officer, said: ‘The demand for care is increasing yet the number of homes in this part of the UK has been falling.

‘I am delighted that we are able to add Lambwood Heights in Chigwell to our family of homes.

‘It is a privilege for us to be entrusted to provide care to the local people and we are excited to be opening such a beautiful home that will deliver the very best care and support available.’


Cygnet Health Care will be opening a £2m supported living scheme in Birmingham this spring.

The service will consist of 16 self-contained apartments, each with their own garden, with onsite support to adults with learning disabilities, autism and mental health needs.

It will enable individuals to live safely and independently in the community, with 24-hour support from Cygnet’s onsite staff team.
