Residents from Care UK’s Paddock House care home in Eye have taken a first look around their new home on Castleton Way in the town.

Hartismere Place will provide nursing, residential and dementia care for up to 60 people, as well as flexible day care in the adjacent Hartismere Club.

Care UK regional director Phillip Steyn said: “We were delighted to share this moment with residents from Paddock House, who are very much looking forward to settling in to their new home this autumn.”

Construction has been underway at Hartismere Place since September 2014. This will be the ninth of 10 new care homes to open in Suffolk, as part of Care UK’s £60 million development project in partnership with Suffolk County Council to improve the county’s provision of modern, older people’s care.
