Local Councillors Welcome Careline Lifestyles to Hartlepool

Local residents asked to help name new facility

Hartlepool residents are being invited to help name a new specialist residential nursing centre on Jones Road in the town, planned to open this summer following a £4 million investment by North East-based Careline Lifestyles.

Local councillors have welcomed the investment by Careline Lifestyles, a leading independent provider of high quality nursing and residential care, which is expected to create 150 jobs. The state of the art centre will support up to 46 people with acquired brain injuries, neurological conditions, mental health needs, complex learning and physical disabilities.

Cllr Stephen Thomas, who recently visited the site along with his colleague Cllr Rob Cook, said: “This is an incredibly impressive new resource for the people of Hartlepool, providing a much needed specialist care service and we welcome Careline Lifestyles to our community. We’re also pleased that local people are being given a chance to name the facility, which gives them a real stake in its future, and whoever suggests the chosen name will win an iPad."

With a range of cutting edge facilities including hydrotherapy pool, creative suite, training kitchen and sensory rooms, the centre will provide a mixture of en-suite bedrooms, apartments and one and two bed bungalows, allowing it to meet the diverse needs of service users.

Careline Lifestyles provides a unique service to clients, offering positive behaviour support that is delivered and managed through the company’s in-house behavioural team. The Jones Road development, designed by Newcastle-based Space Group, is the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of 10 specialist care facilities across the North East.

Rahul Sharma, Chief Executive of Careline Lifestyles, commented: “We are a business rooted in the communities we operate and we’re keen for local people to help ensure the new home quickly becomes a part of the local community, which is why we want local people to name the facility. I would also encourage people to check out local job opportunities as we’re currently recruiting for staff.”

The management of the facility will be overseen by a clinical lead and consultant psychiatrist, and staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of Nurses (RNLDs, RGNs, RMNs), Occupational Therapists, Behavioural Analysts, Physiotherapists and specially trained support workers. Careline Lifestyles has made a commitment to employ local people and the company will be looking to fill a significant number of roles atthe new facility, both during the construction phase and when the home is up and running.

Local people with ideas for a name can send their suggestions to info@carelinelifestyles.com, along with their name and contact number by Friday 5 June 2015.
