A national care home group has invested £400,000 into expanding and improving the facilities of a residential care centre it owns in Nuthall.
PrimeLife, which runs more than 60 homes across England, has just completed its extension of Little Acres, which is located on Spencer Drive in the village.
The site, which provides services for adult clients with learning or physical disabilities, currently has 17 beds.
The single storey extension has created eight extra rooms, complete with en-suites, which has taken the total number of beds to 25.
The existing facility has also been knocked through and refurbished to enhance the communal areas already in place.
PrimeLife’s regional director, Shona Noon, said: “The residents at the home have a range of physical disabilities, which we took into consideration when we drew up the e xtension plans.
“The larger rationale for the investment was the need to invest in newer services. so that PrimeLife can continue to grow and improve quality of life for all our residents, in comfortable settings that meet their ongoing needs and aspirations.”
