THE groundbreaking ceremony for a new ?8.5 million care home at a former garden centre site, takes place today.
Developers, Castleoak, are transforming the former Wyevale garden centre at Castleton, on the outskirts of Newport, into a new 80-bed care home. The new home will be leased and run by one of the UK?s leading care home operators, Barchester Healthcare, and will provide residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, as well as bringing 100 jobs to the area.
Steve Bucknell, managing director of Castleoak, said: ?The new care home will be built on the site of Castleton?s Wyevale Garden Centre and will bring much needed high quality care accommodation to east Cardiff and Newport.
?The operation of the care home by Barchester Healthcare will also bring more than 100 long-term full-time equivalent jobs to the local area when it opens spring 2015.?
