The mayor was given a tour of the facilities, which will include 66 bedrooms with en-suite wet rooms, a cinema room, a hair salon, a tea room and a Sky Bar.
Cllr Farrell said: “Thorn Springs in Bidwell West is bright and well laid out, with quality fixtures and fittings, and even has an indoor garden room opening onto the outside garden spaces, which are especially good for sensory and active wellbeing.”
She added: “This is a wonderful ‘forever home’ that will be staffed by local, friendly professionals. I was extremely impressed by what I saw.”
Maria Taylor thanked the mayor for her visit. She said: “It was an absolute pleasure to meet her. Our new home is coming together nicely, and I’m sure our future residents will love what the facility has to offer.”
She added: I’m especially looking forward to meeting the local community in the coming months, as we prepare to officially open Thorn Springs’ doors in October.”
