Southern Cross completes second phase of Treelands


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

Southern Cross Healthcare has completed the second phase of development at the purpose-built Treelands care home in Oldham. Treelands was built at a cost of £3.5 million to provide residential and nursing facilities for older people living in the Greater Manchester area. The first 40 beds opened in 2003, and are full. Another 40 beds were opened on the first floor in July. The new beds offer 20 frail elderly places and 20 EMI residential places to add to the 20 frail elderly and 20 EMI nursing beds on the ground floor. The home was divided into four units, and is registered to provide nursing, social and personal care to frail elderly people on Oak Unit, and to people suffering with dementia on Beech Unit.
