HC-One, Morgan Sindall Later Living, and City of York Council have celebrated a key milestone as the partnership brings a brand new, state of the art care home to York. Once open, the home will form the centrepiece of an innovative multi-million pound Health and Wellbeing campus.
To mark the occasion, the new home has been officially named as Mossdale Residence.
Mossdale Residence care home is due to open later this year and marked it’s ‘topping out’ on Wednesday. Once open, it will be run by HC-One, the UK’s leading elderly care provider, as its first care home in the city. HC-One was honoured to be selected as the operational partner for the home by City of York Council in recognition of HC-One’s strong track record of delivering kind, high-quality, Resident focused care.
The new Mossdale Residence care home will provide high-quality residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 80 older people. It will also create new jobs for the local community, all of which will benefit from HC-One’s multi-award winning learning and development programme, with roles across care, nursing, property maintenance, housekeeping and food service.
Mossdale Residence is set to feature the latest facilities – including a dedicated cinema room, a bar, a hair and beauty salon, a hobby and crafts room, and a range of lounge, dining and outdoor terrace spaces – making it one of, if not the best care home in the area. Residents will be able to experience the highest quality residential, nursing and dementia care delivered by HC-One, an organisation with a 96% satisfaction rating from Residents and families.*
HC-One will also be bringing a range of digital care tools to the home, including electronic care records which will enable carers to spend more time supporting Residents, less time completing paperwork, and enable a greater level of oversight, accountability and peace of mind for families.
Mossdale Residence is the centrepiece of the Health and Wellbeing campus that is being developed on the old Burnholme Community College site in York. Alongside the care home, this campus will deliver healthcare facilities, a library, a range of community and sports facilities, as well as much needed new housing. The development was also one of just three nominees for the Project of the Year award at the recent Government Property Awards.
The development of this new care home is the first of a number of innovative new partnerships HC-One has formed with local authorities who are keen to see the organisation operate in their local area, and HC-One’s new Development Division will be announcing further partnerships in due course.
John Ransford, Executive Director at HC-One, said:
“We at HC-One are thrilled to be marking this important stage of the care home’s development, together with the City of York Council and Morgan Sindall Later Living. We are excited to become part of, and support, the wider York community when the home opens later this year.
“We strive to be the first-choice care provider for Residents and Colleagues in every community we serve. We are very much looking forward to providing the kindest possible care for elderly people in York, in a place that they can call home. We are also excited to work with talented Colleagues who will benefit from our award-winning learning and development opportunities as part of the HC-One family.”
Cllr Carol Runciman, Executive Member for Health and Adult Social Care at City of York Council said:
“I’m delighted with the progress Morgan Sindall Later Living is making to create much-needed new accommodation. This care home which we have secured, promises additional high-quality care in the most modern facilities to some of our most vulnerable residents.
“We work to support people to remain as independent as possible with the best possible quality of life. This accommodation is in a growing community alongside our new library, community facilities, sports centre, improved outdoor space and homes.”
