The home will provide full-time residential and specialist dementia care, as well as short-term respite care for up to 60 older people, with facilities including a cinema, hair salon and café.

Dave Ankers, regional director for Care UK, said: “We’re delighted to be adding to our ever-expanding portfolio of residential care homes.

“Long Stone Manor is our 10th home in Cheshire.

“We can’t wait to give members of the community the grand tour once the home’s interior is complete.”

Ian Roberts, project Manager at Russell WBHO, said: “We’re excited to mark such a key milestone in our first ever project with Care UK.

“We know that well-designed physical spaces can have positive impacts on supporting individuals to live longer and more fulfilling lives.

“Long Stone Manor will offer future residents the very best of care.

“Construction is off to a great start.

“We’re confident we’ll be able to hand the reins over to Care UK’s expert team next spring.” The home has been designed to incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities.

The layout of the building will be configured into a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge/dining room, to help facilitate the creation of close-knit communities.
