Swanton Care to build in Wales

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

Swanton Care and Community, a provider of care for people with complex needs, has announced the next phase in its year long expansion programme. Closely following the development of Chetan Park in Norfolk, Swanton’s next project is the construction of a nine-bed unit in Welshpool, Mid-Wales. The site, which will be known as Aureus Place, will be home to service users with a range of complex needs and may include people with autistic spectrum disorders. The development of the site was scheduled to be completed on April 1st. Swanton managing director Paul Hill said there was a lack of specialist services for people with complex needs across Wales. “We hope that the development of Aureus Place will go some way to redressing the balance,” said Mr Hill. Founded last year, Swanton provides specialist nursing, residential, respite and support services for children and adults. Swanton currently has 153 beds and the company plans to double this number over the next two years.
