HC-One officially marks the beginning of ground-breaking new care home in Milton KeynesLeading care home operator HC-One held an official turf cutting ceremony for its new state-of-the-art luxury care home in Milton Keynes. 

The new home, due to be completed late 2024, will be located on Wolverton Road, adjacent to a large orchard and wildflower garden, and is set to offer the kind care that HC-One prides itself on to elderly members of the community. 

The 78 bedroom, three-storey home will offer luxurious communal facilities for Residents and their families or friends to enjoy including scenic gardens, spacious lounges and dining areas, bar bistro, hair and beauty salon, cinema, library and a private dining area for family celebrations.   

Interior design will reflect the rich history and natural beauty of the area, with influences including the region’s diverse architectural styles, period country houses, restored historic sites, and surrounding natural and environmental features.  

Design philosophy embraces industry leading standards of dementia friendly environmental design, with a focus on creating a calming, therapeutic living environment to help people feel at home. 

The new home will offer residential, nursing and dementia care for elderly people living in the local community and is set to create circa 90 new jobs in the area at full occupancy, with roles across care, nursing, property maintenance, housekeeping and food service.  

Operator HC-One offers professional residential, nursing and dementia care for older people in 269 care homes across England, Scotland and Wales. It has some of the highest review scores across the care home sector and has been awarded Carehome.co.uk’s Top 20 Large Care Group Award for 2023. HC-One’s highly experienced team of health and social care professionals provide the kindest possible care by seeking to understand what matters most for each Resident so they can support them to live their best life. 

The new care home will be the company’s second facility in Milton Keynes, with sister care home Highclere Care Home already a well-regarded care home in the local community, rated Good by CQC and sitting at a 9.6 out of 10 review score on Carehome.co.uk. 

This is the latest care home to be built in HC-One’s new build programme, which saw three homes open in 2021 (in York, Bingham and Telford) and a new home set to open in Oswestry later this year. This new build programme is complemented by HC-One’s wider £92 million in its refurbishment and upgrade programme, to modernise and enhance the living environments and facilities of more than 200 of HC-One’s existing care homes across the company. This is the largest ever care home upgrade programme in the UK and will ensure that people across the UK can live and work in specialist, comfortable homes fit for the future of care. 

Planning for the development was delivered by Aspire LPP in 2022 and HC-One will now work closely with developers Aspire More Limited and contractor Lawrence Baker Ltd throughout the construction process to ensure delivery of a home which is befitting of HC-One’s high standards. 

Bernard Mawoyo, Managing Director at HC-One, said:  

“We are delighted to officially mark the start of our exciting new development in Milton Keynes. 

“At HC-One, we strive to be the first-choice care provider for residents and colleagues in every community we serve. As our second HC-One home in Milton Keynes, we are very much looking forward to opening the doors of our new state-of-the-art home so that we can welcome more Residents and talented Colleagues from the area and continue to work closely with our local partners to provide the kindest possible care.”
