Dominic Kay, New Care

Build is now officially underway on a new state-of-the-art £20m care facility on the site of the former Mercure Hotel in Bowdon, with practical completion confirmed for May 2025.

At the start of the year Altrincham-based New Care commenced remediation works on the site, including demolition of much of the old hotel.  Over the course of the last few weeks work has gathered pace and construction has now started on the foundations of the new care home.

Helping to increase the provision of quality beds in Trafford, New Care’s expertly designed ‘new generation’ care facility is purpose-built to deliver the highest standards of care in a safe and stylish home-from-home environment.

The care home will feature 51 bedrooms, each with its own private wet room.  Residents will be encouraged to personalise their bedrooms with soft furnishings from home.  There will also be several stylish communal lounges and dining rooms, along with a nail bar and hairdresser.  There will also be beautifully landscaped grounds with secure garden and outdoor spaces for residents to enjoy.


New Care is renowned for delivering exceptional residential, respite, dementia and 24 hour nursing care.  Residents will receive individual person-centred compassionate care enhanced with a meaningful programme of daily activities from a permanent and highly skilled professional team.

With a portfolio of 15 well established care facilities across the UK, this is the latest care facility for the company in Trafford, complementing Ashlands Manor in Sale, and it is New Care’s 11th care home in the North West.

Dawn Collett, Commissiong Director at New Care, says: “It’s wonderful that work has now officially started on site in Bowdon.  The foundations will soon be complete, which means the brickwork can commence, and it won’t be long before the shell of the building will be seen above the hoarding.  All is on track for practical completion in May 2025, which is great news.”

Bowdon is the latest new care facility for New Care; the operator also has another care home under construction in Herne Bay.  Principal contractor, McGoff Construction (New Care’s sister company and also part of the McGoff Group), is managing all build programmes.

One of the UK’s leading care home operators, New Care’s portfolio of purpose-built ‘new generation’ care centres is fast gaining an enviable reputation for outstanding care that is second to none.  For further information on New Care, please call 0161 927 2940.
