Yorkcare opens Ashcroft

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

The recent opening of Ashcroft nursing home in Bradford was the culmination of two years¹ careful planning and hard work, according to Yorkcare, one of Yorkshire major care providers. The redevelopment includes a newly built 40 bedroom extension plus the addition of a sun lounge and coffee shop. Each of the new bedrooms has its own en-suite bathroom. Ashcroft, which originally opened in 1990, is described by Yorkcare as a well appointed, purpose built nursing home providing the very highest standards of personal care 24 hours a day by a dedicated team of professional nurses and carers. The expansion has created 25 new full and part time jobs. Yorkcare also owns Springfield House nursing home in Bradford. The company is about to embark on a new phase of investment starting later this year with an even larger redevelopment at Springfield House. Plans are also in the pipeline to develop the five acres of land surrounding Springfield into the £15million Buttermeade Care Village, with 200 close care apartments,
