New dementia centre of excellence will bring specialist care and new jobs to Lichfield
30 March 2021
Construction work is progressing well on a new dementia centre of excellence in Lichfield bringing state of the art care, and new job opportunities to the area.
Based off Bridge Farm Lane in Fradley, the multi-million pound development is owned and managed by social housing landlord and national care provider Accord.
Designed specifically to meet the needs of people living with dementia, the new centre will provide 90 individual living spaces. It will consist of six households, each with a communal kitchen, dining area, lounge and access to gardens and outdoor space. Each household will contain 15 en-suite bedrooms and Accord’s specialist team of carers will deliver personalised and quality care and support 24 hours a day.
Maxine Espley, Accord’s Executive Director, Care and Support said: “We are delighted that work is progressing well to deliver this outstanding care facility for those living with dementia and those with complex needs.
“Bowbrook has been designed to create a familiar, homely environment where people living with dementia can thrive with personalised, quality care and support. As leaders in dementia excellence we have used our vast knowledge and experience to create this first-class facility bringing specialist dementia care to Lichfield.”
The new dementia centre of excellence will also provide a boost to the local area through the creation of jobs for local people.
Maxine added: “The centre is creating 100 new jobs for the local community, which is particularly welcome news during a time when many have been impacted by Covid-19. We are welcoming applications from people with experience and those new to the care sector as we will provide a comprehensive training package.”
The new centre is expected to be completed within the next few months ready for customers to move in from June 2021. To find out more about living at Bowbrook please contact Kathryn Bagnall on 07471 355276 or email: Kathryn.Bagnall@accordgroup.org.uk
