A new care home looking after residents with learning disabilities will open its doors to its first residents on Monday.
Jochen Self, director of Red Oaks Care Ltd, applied for planning permission to convert his bungalow, in Mulbarton, into a care home, trebling its size.
The new Red Oaks Care Home, in The Rosery, Mulbarton, has six ensuite rooms, a quiet room, orangery and a garden.
Mr Self said he wanted to build a different style and model of caring.
He said: “I want the residents to get the a better value of life and staff get a better working environment.”
