A luxury care home with ‘restaurant quality’ dining facilities and a cafe open to family and friends is set to be built in Penicuik.
Plans for the new 54-bed home have been lodged with Midlothian Council by Morrison Community Care Group.
The company says the state of the art care facility will have extensive communal facilities and gardens with plans to build a retail unit next to the home to provide a local shop to residents and locals.
The proposed home will be off Meikle Drive, in Greenlaw Mains, in the town.
Morrison said said the Penicuik home will continue its reputation for providing high quality homes with imaginative design.
It said: “Each care home is divided into family units, with each unit having restaurant quality dining rooms, with service to table, and a team of professionally trained chefs in a commercial standard kitchen, ensuring the best at these important social times of the day.
“All homes have a busy schedule of recreational and leisure activities, both indoor and outdoor, as well as regular outings to local garden centres,
pubs, and educational trips.
“Residents also want to still feel a part of the community, so links with local schools, colleges and social groups are also established at each location, as well as with associations such as the Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia Friends, and Attend.
“All homes have cafés for residents to use throughout the day, open to visiting family and friends, with Penicuik even boasting a Celebration Suite where residents can entertain.”
