Meridian upgrades continue
Building and refurbishment work has now finished at Hurst Hall in Ashton-under-Lyne. The care centre has increased its capacity from 45 bedrooms to 50. All the new rooms have ensuite bathrooms, increasing the number of bedrooms with ensuite facilities to 33. Meridian says the additional beds for residential care will be welcomed in Tameside as there is an ongoing shortage of high quality residential and nursing care beds for elderly people. In addition to the extra room capacity, a lounge, dining room and conservatory have been added, with high quality hotel standard furniture and fittings. Meridian managing director Alan Firth said the new building work and refurbishments were part of Tameside CareÂ¹s ongoing plans to update and enhance all its existing care centres in Tameside. “The changes we are making to this and other care centres in the borough will mean that our care centres are some of the best in the North West,” Mr Firth said.
