AN Urmston care home has recently completed a £1.6 million refurbishment, adding 20 new bedrooms.

The improved Manorhey Care Centre was officially opened by Kate Green MP and 84-year-old resident, Milly Mitten, from Urmston.

Ms Green said: “It was great to visit Manorhey, open the new accommodation with Milly and have a chat with some of the residents.

“The new space looks excellent and is a great addition to the dementia care on offer in Trafford.”

The extension takes Manorhey from 63 to 83 beds, with a further £200,000 refurbishment within the original building also nearing completion.

“It was an honour to be asked to officially open the new accommodation at Manorhey,” said Milly.

“I have only been at the home for a few weeks but have settled in straight away.

“The staff are all exceptionally kind and have cared for me so well since I arrived, Manorhey is a lovely home.”
