THE completion of the Dearne’s latest care home will create 50 jobs in the area.

A “topping out” ceremony on Tuesday marked the end of building at Dearne Hall, which is set to be a leading residential and dementia facility in the area.

Dearne Hall will offer a home for 48 people... 18 beds for residential care and a further 30 for those living with dementia.

The home is expected to create 50 jobs for the local area.

Ideal Care Homes is looking to recruit a range of staff from care assistants to kitchen staff and night managers, ready for the home’s opening in August 2011.

The new three-storey, bespoke facility, situated on the Ringway, will be operated by Ideal Care Homes and is currently being built by LNT Construction.

Both are part of the LNT Group owned by Yorkshire-born entrepreneur Lawrence Tomlinson.

The scheme will provide en-suite accommodation, fully landscaped courtyard gardens, a hairdressing salon and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Chairman Mr Tomlinson told the Times: “I’m thrilled to see the roof going on at Dearne Hall.

“I’m very familiar with the needs of the local community and I am keen that local residents all benefit from having such a first-rate facility on their doorstep, at prices they can afford.”
