Latest elderly care project for Skipton set to create 100 jobs

Elderly care company Hadrian Healthcare has acquired land overlooking the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in Skipton.

The firm is planning to build elderly care accommodation with a new build development and could create up to 100 jobs for the local area.

Hadrian Healthcare is a family business established by the owner and chairman, Ian Watson, who has a reputation for introducing standards in the provision of all forms of accommodation and care.

The company recently sold five of its Manor House homes in Yorkshire and County Durham, which are now operated by the Anchor Hanover Group, leaving Hadrian to operate two North East homes, the Manor Houses at Gosforth and Whickham.

The company has recently turned its attention to Skipton where it has plans for the creation of a new Manor House project at Sackville Street, on the banks of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

The proposed new accommodation will have 85 bedrooms/suites, including the company’s specialist ‘Chesters’ accommodation which has been specially designed by Hadrian Healthcare to provide an environment for people with dementia.

In addition, there will be eight supported living apartments.

Ian Watson said: “We look for sites that reflect what we offer by their location, so it’s no coincidence that this is a premier position in Skipton which will have beautifully landscaped private gardens, yet still be close to amenities and shops.

“There will also be a special roof terrace garden for our ‘Chesters’ residents where they can enjoy the stimulation of being outdoors in beautiful surroundings overlooking the calm waters of the canal.

“It almost seems to be underselling what’s on offer to mention ‘bedrooms’ when what we are actually providing is an exclusive quality of life for discerning elderly people who can no longer live by themselves, but want to maintain their lifestyle, individuality and dignity.”

The Manor House Skipton will also offer respite care.
