The Conway Group has announced a £2.5million plans to extend 'The Cottage Care Home', located at the Lodge Road in the outskirts of the town.
The care home, which currently has 41 residents with general nursing requirements, is one of seven care facilities owned and operated across the region by Conway Group Healthcare.
Jarlath Conway, the firm's director, said: "The new extension will allow us to provide a further 27 placements which will be tailored for the needs of individuals with general nursing and also dementia nursing needs.
"The Conway Group has significant experience in the design and construction of facilities for older adults and people requiring dementia care. We continue to work closely with the University of Stirling who are nationally recognised for setting the standard for dementia-friendly buildings," he added.
The extension is due for completion in December.
