Trinity opens Leeds complex
Trinity Care plc has opened an assisted living complex in Leeds. The development comprises a two-storey care home and Trinity Court, a self-contained wing of 11 one- and two-bedroom assisted independent living apartments for purchase. Trinity Care chief executive David Henderson said all but two of the apartments had been sold. “We believe this is the future model for elderly care in the UK as it allows frail elderly people, who are not in need of full nursing care, to enjoy independence along with the security and services of the adjacent home, as and when necessary,” Mr Henderson said. The complex, at Gledhow in Leeds, cost Â£2.2 million and is expected to create more than 60 jobs. Funded by cash from Trinity Care and a term loan from the Bank of Scotland, the home provides 50 beds for 25 frail elderly people and 25 elderly mentally infirm people.
