Yeovil home nears completion


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

A 40-bed nursing home in Yeovil, Somerset, is nearing completion.

Designed and project managed by local architect Alan Young, Hendford care home with nursing is being built by Chard-based building contractors RG Spiller Ltd on behalf of owners/developers Aurora Care Ltd.

Funding for the development, which will offer nursing, palliative and dementia care, was provided by the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS). Phase 1 of the �8-10m development is expected to be complete in January 2010 with further care-related buildings being built on the site following completion of the first nursing home.

Aurora managing director Michael Lawson said it had been important to use a local contractor and consultant.

‘We are delighted with how the project is progressing,’ said Mr Lawson. ‘We already run the award-winning Hurst Manor in Martock and our aim is to create a state-of-the-art care facility in Yeovil’
