Chance to find out about planned Inverurie care village

27th December 2012

Aberdeenshire Council is giving local residents a chance to find out about the new £8 million care village planned for Inverurie.

Proposals for a new care village include a 60-bed care home and eight associated one and two-bedroom bungalows, along with specialist dementia, respite and complex care facilities to replace the current accommodation at Blythewood House.

A public information event will be held at the council chambers in Gordon House, Inverurie on Thursday, 10 January 2013 from 6pm.

The event includes a short presentation giving information on the concept of the care village. Residents will also have a chance to view plans of the site.

Head of Older People and Disabilities, Patricia Maclachlan, said: “The care village concept is something we know that older people want, and this is evidenced by extensive research we have carried out, as well as work undertaken with our health and care partners.

“We consulted with the local in October 2011 and we are now looking to go back and share the finalised plans.

“We were delighted to open our first 60-bed home in Stonehaven in December 2012 and we are looking forward to emulating the project’s success in Inverurie.”
