Knowle Hill is on the move with plans for a relocation and major upgrade of facilities!
The Halfway care home - one of the chain of ten properties operated across the city by not for profit organisation Sheffcare - is one of the most popular sites in the group but the age of the building and the resulting increased running costs mean it is set to make a loss over the coming years.
But now Sheffcare has revealed plans to buy the currently unoccupied Haddon Court home in nearby Beighton, carry out an extensive programme of refurbishment and then move all Knowle Hill’s residents and staff to the new development.
“This is great news for us as it ensures the continuing success of the charity and as this will be an 80 bed home, it will also help generate valuable further income,” said Sheffcare Chief Executive Belinda Black.
“This is a very attractive home with views over a lake and the church, once our work is completed, we will be able to offer superior facilities for both residents and staff.”
Belinda added that the decision to relocate had been taken only after all other options - including the building of an extension at the current site - had been fully investigated and found to be unviable.
“We believe that the development of a new home is great news for us as it ensures the continuing success of the charity.
“Of course, this does mean relocating people who live and work at Knowle Hill and we know that this can be a difficult time for some people”.
“But I am confident that with residents and staff all moving together, we will be able to keep disruption to an absolute minimum and that everybody will appreciate the upgraded rooms and en-suite facilities the new property will offer.”
