Work has now begun on a Duntocher care home which will offer a roof terrace and hair and beauty salon.

The £8.2million facility, to be named Kingsacre Luxury Suites, will be located just off Concho Road and will offer expert 24-hour residential, nursing and dementia care, creating up to 100 jobs for the community once completed.

Operated by owners Morrison Community Care Group, the new care home is set to consist of 69 luxury suites, four dining rooms, a visitor’s café, a private cinema and hair and beauty salon.

Extensive outdoor activities will also be available to residents, including a roof terrace, private gardens and a putting green.

The facility is due to open in summer 2019 with reservations being taken from winter 2018.

Paul Sokhi, managing director of Morrison Community Care, said: “Our 29 years experience in the industry has shown us that People want to have fun in their old age and we want to encourage this through design and environment.

“By encouraging people out of the often-lonely surroundings of their own homes into an environment where there is a vibrant community we hope to give residents and their families an extra lease of life.

“We understand that people age at different rates and at different times, and as such we have a responsive, highly trained care and clinical team on site that will allow Kingsacre to be a home for life in every sense of the word.”
