Isle of Man reveals plans for £12.75m care home in Ramsey

The Isle of Man has unveiled plans to build a £12.75m residential care home in Ramsey in the north of the island.

Manx Care, the state provider of health and care for the Isle of Man, proposes to replace the Cummal Mooar care home built in 1981 and replace it with a 45-bed development with ensuite facilities.

If the project is given planning approval, the existing Cummal Mooar facility will remain fully operational throughout the building phase.

“The planning application to build a replacement for Cummal Mooar highlights how we’re investing resources in the appropriate areas to create residential properties that are future-proofed to meet the ongoing care needs of our ageing population, whilst creating a safe and comfortable living experience for them,” said Manx Care executive director of social care Sally Shaw.

Isle of Man health and social care minister Lawrie Hooper, added: “This is an important step in what will be a pivotal development for the people of the north of the island.

“The current Cummal Mooar facility and its staff have played an incredibly important part in the lives of residents, their families and our community for more than 40 years and I’m very happy to see plans coming forward to upgrade the facility and provide a state-of-the-art experience for current and future staff and residents.”
