The care facility is scheduled to be operational by October 2022, while the first technology enabled homes were allocated in January and February of this year, with the rest to follow in July 2022.

Director of health and social care, Soumen Sengupta, told Lanarkshire Live : “Innovation is the beating heart of this development and of our wider commitment to supporting people to live well, safely, and independently at home.

“Our collaboration here with the Glasgow Science Centre – the first of its kind in Scotland – is one that the development has really benefited from and that we look forward to our building on.”

Chairwoman of the council’s social work resources committee, Councillor Margaret Walker, told us : “This facility is all about supporting people to return home or to a setting which best meets their needs.

“It was fantastic to be able to see the excellent progress our staff and all those involved have delivered ahead of the much-anticipated opening in October.”

Chairman of the council’s housing and technical resources committee, Councillor Davie McLachlan, added : “The 20 technology enabled properties and the 25 new council homes will be a welcome addition to the heart of Blantyre.”
