Posted on September 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Guardian Care Homes UK Ltd has opened a new, purpose-built care home in the former mining village of Chilton in County Durham. The £1.8 million two-storey, 40-bed Chilton Care Centre has been built on the site of an old school. Guardian, which now owns a total of 33 care homes and nurseries in England and the Scottish borders, has, over the last two years, become one of the biggest privately-owned groups of care homes, with a total of more than 1,000 beds and employing more than 700 staff. The home includes four lounges and two dining rooms and there is an enclosed courtyard which is being landscaped so that residents can enjoy sitting outdoors.
