Two new care homes need residents

TWO new elderly care homes are almost complete and will be ready for occupation in February.

The Extracare Schemes at Cherry Tree Court, Goldthorpe, and Fitzwilliam Court, Hoyland, will provide apartments for older people.

Barnsley Council and Berneslai Homes want to hear from potential residents. The developments will include communal restaurant, laundry and hairdressing, and a range of activities will also be arranged by staff.

Each scheme has apartments for rent, and every home will have a fully fitted kitchen and walk-in shower.

All assessed applicants must be over 55 years of age and be a resident of Barnsley, or demonstrate some local connection.
