Borough Care gets extension go ahead

Borough Care, the largest not for profit provider of care for older people in Stockport, has been given the go ahead to extend one of its homes.

Planning permission has been granted for a new wing to be added to Bruce Lodge in Offerton, Stockport. The new wing will be based on the ‘household model’. The two storey extension will provide 18 new bedrooms and a social dining space. The new bedrooms will be modern, spacious and have en-suite facilities.

Bruce Lodge currently provides accommodation and support for 47 older people living with dementia and other mental health conditions. The building is a purpose built dementia care home with wide corridors, a light, airy interior and secure enclosed garden. Bruce Lodge is one of Borough Care’s eleven homes for older people in the Stockport area.

Dr Mark Ward, CEO at Borough Care, says: “At a time of ever increasing pressure on hospital and care home beds, this is a significant investment we are making to boost the number available for people in Stockport. As people are living longer, and the number with dementia continues to increase, this is part of our ongoing strategy to meet the needs of a growing ageing population in our area.”
