New care home facility will support the needs of some of the most vulnerable people in the county

Herefordshire Council will be developing a new 80-bed care home in the county following a Cabinet decision on Thursday 28 October.

Demographic changes and the development of the local care home market is set to add to the pressure on existing capacity because of increasing numbers of older and disabled people with complex needs.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the closure of a privately run care home due to flood damage, Herefordshire Council opened the Hillside Care Centre in 2020.

The plan is for the new facility to offer a high-quality care environment, maximising the use of advanced technology to support the needs of residents.

Potential sites will now be explored, including consulting with key stakeholders and developing the business plan.

Cllr Pauline Crockett, Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Wellbeing, said:


“I’m delighted that approval has been granted for a new care home facility which will support the needs of some of the most vulnerable people in the county.

“Care homes play a vital role in the community, and this development will provide an opportunity to connect care and support services more effectively.”
