Construction work begins on landmark luxury care home in Dalgety Bay

CONSTRUCTION is underway on a new luxury care home in Dalgety Bay, Dunfermline.

Located at Harbour Way just north of the town centre, the development will comprise 68 en-suite beds and integrated amenities for residents including a hair salon, cinema, dining rooms and private gardens as well as specialist residential, nursing and dementia care services.

Designed to create a ‘home-from-home’ environment, the project is being led by Morrison Community Care and contractor CCG and is the first that will officially be taken forward as part of Morrison Community Care and CCG’s joint venture company which was launched last year.

The development is designed by Holmes Miller and construction is set to last just over a one-year period.

Paul Sokhi, MD of Morrison Community Care Group, said, “I am delighted to see that works have commenced at Dalgety Bay Luxury Suites. This is a big milestone in our partnership with CCG (Scotland) and I am immensely proud of what we have achieved in getting to this stage.

“It is undeniable that demand for accommodation for the elderly is growing across the country and in this post-pandemic era, it is crucial that we continue to support our ageing population not just in the provision of quality accommodation but by also creating an environment that supports their health and wellbeing.

“With the creation of jobs and a development that will be class-leading for residential, nursing and dementia care services, we believe this new development will contribute greatly to the local economy of Dunfermline and I look forward to its official opening in 2023.”

CCG MD, David Wylie, added, “After having successfully completed two developments together in 2021, contributing over 100 beds including Roselea Court, the Scottish Property Award Healthcare Development of the Year for 2022, in Stirling, Dalgety Bay Luxury Suites will be the first of many that will be delivered as part of our innovative joint venture company, Morrison Community Care (CCG) Holdco Ltd.

“We are delighted that this has brought us to Fife I look forward to seeing how works will progress over the coming months.”
