Local care provider renovates former care home to offer new Supported Living scheme in Herefordshire

Radis Community Care, a leading care provider, begins renovations on a former care home to launch a brand new Supported Living scheme in Leominster, Herefordshire.

The former Care Home, Newman’s Care Home which was established nearly 50 years ago, will be transformed into a new Supported Living scheme suitable for people with learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders and physical disabilities. The new scheme will house a total of nine clients in four terraced houses, four of whom have lived at the care home for most of their adult lives.

Renovations to the properties will be completed in a phased approach, including modernisation of the properties and building an extension on the ground floor to assist clients with limited mobility.

Les Newman, owner of former Newman’s Care Home, said: “With such a long history, it is nice to know that this legacy will continue under Radis Community Care’s Supported Living banner. Knowing that the current four residents will continue to live in their homes is wonderful.”

Radis’ new Supported Living scheme will open up a number of job opportunities in the local area for support workers and care workers. The roles offer flexible hours, full training and the opportunity for career progression. If you are interested in one of these positions, please email: recruitment@radis.co.uk or call 0330 100 8181.
