Sarah Roe, District Manager for Anchor said: “Today’s topping out is an important milestone for both Anchor and the care home. The Manor House will deliver much needed, high-quality accommodation to support older people and their changing needs as well as contributing to our vision of creating more homes for people to love living in later life, and more opportunities for people to find a fulfilling role in the social care sector. I would like to thank everyone for their support and co-operation in helping us reach this stage.”

Councillor Abigail Marshall Katung, Lord Mayor of Leeds said: “Many congratulations to everyone involved on the completion of work at The Manor House. Anchor continues to raise the standards of care and accommodation for older people and I look forward to seeing the developing relationship between Anchor and its residents and witnessing the high-quality care provided to older members of our community.”

The Manor House is built to an Energy Performance Certificate A rating standard with a focus on sustainable heating systems and generating renewable energy through solar panels. Equipped with modern facilities, the new home has been built to meet the needs of today’s residents and will provide the highest standard of person-centred residential and dementia care to every resident.
