Planning For Care Home in Ross-on-Wye

Freeman Care part of the M F Freeman Group of Companies has successfully secured consent for a 90 bed home for the elderly, a C2 use, that will provide 30 bedrooms for the frail elderly, 48 bedrooms for dementia care, 12 bedrooms for “end of life” dementia care, day rooms, dining rooms, office, shop, café and a cinema room.  This state of the art facility has been carefully designed to provide leading healthcare facilities. 

The building will be mostly single storey with a two storey part at the front of the site.  The scheme includes courtyards and sitting areas and lots of interesting landscaped areas designed by award winning landscape architects Tim Lynch Associates.  The Dementia Courtyards include old style features and objects such as red telephone box and post box which will trigger memories to aid reminiscence.  There is even a roof garden with dining terrace with sun parasols for shade looking up towards Chase woods and the surrounding countryside. 

Luke Freeman, Joint Managing Director of M F Freeman Group of Companies commented “We are delighted to have received planning consent for this exciting scheme which will provide Ross with much needed new facilities for the care of the elderly.  The scheme will provide 94 full time care jobs plus employment for the construction of the home and the on-going services provided into it, which is great for inward investment into the local economy.”
