New state-of-the-art care homes with their own shops, cinema, pub and hair salon are to be built in two East Yorkshire towns.
Hessle and Hornsea are the latest East Riding towns earmarked for development by award-winning Yorkare Homes Ltd.
Each care home will create about 90 jobs in the £10m investment by the Brantingham-based company.
It follows September’s opening of Yorkare's £6m Beverley Parklands Care Home, built by Hull-based Hobson Porter and nominated for Best New Build Care Home in the UK.

Yorkare Homes Ltd says work will start soon on a 60-bed home for nursing and dementia care at Hessle, off Heads Lane.
Later this year, work will also get under way at Hornsea, on a 50-bed nursing and dementia care facility overlooking Hornsea Mere.
Beverley Parklands Care Home opened in September
Yorkare has developed in-house designs for its homes incorporating street scenes with a memory lane shop, hair dressers, pub, cinema and charity shop, designed for dementia residents.
The new homes will build on the success of the company's facilities at Beverley, Hedon, Goole and Cleethorpes.

Yorkare Homes’ operations director Jonathan Garton says: “We will aim to deliver the same standard of care that we have in our other homes.
“We have had a great reaction from residents and staff at the recently-opened Beverley Parklands Care Home.
“Beverley Parklands Care Home has also been nominated for the Best New Build Care Home in the UK 2018, at this year’s prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design Awards.”
Laurence Garton, development director, is delighted with the nomination for the Beverley facility.

He says: “It’s great to see our ideas developed and the residents enjoying their new home.
“We look forward to our third outing at the awards in April, after winning the award previously for Magdalen Park, Hedon and Lindsey Hall, Cleethorpes.”
Work is expected to start shortly at a 1.5-acre site in Hessle, where Tranby Park Nursing Home is targeted for completion in spring 2019.
Mere View Nursing Home will be built at Hornsea, at the former Wakefield School site, in Hull Road.
Work will start later this year on the two-acre site on the edge of Hornsea, for completion in late 2019.
Yorkare Homes says most of the contractors for its new developments will be local.
The developments will make Yorkare Homes one of the largest suppliers of care home beds in the East Riding, with 465 beds across six homes.
