A local purpose built care home was one step closer to completion this week as the team behind the development celebrated the traditional ‘topping out’ ceremony at the Hastings Road property in Bexhill on Sea.
Southlands Place is the latest state-of-the-art care centre to be built by the award-wining independent provider Caring Homes and will offer residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 72 residents. Those living there will benefit from the variety of communal areas that the home will offer, including landscaped gardens and living accommodation laid out over four floors.
Julie Mason, Regional Operations Director from Caring Homes said:
‘Caring Homes is synonymous with high quality care delivery, which extends to the care and attention we put into building new care homes.
Our focus is on providing residents with specialist care; tailoring the support they receive to their individual needs, ensuring that the care available is best suited to them. The homely surroundings of this wonderful property will benefit our exceptional standards of care.
Every aspect of Southlands Place has been designed with its residents in mind, from the carefully considered layout of the living accommodation to the safe, accessible landscaped gardens.’
Brigid Sedour, who has over 25 years of home management and senior management in the care sector, will be in charge of the day to day management of the home.
The home is already proving to be quite popular and is due to open in the summer of 2015. It is run by the family-owned Caring Homes Group, which was founded in 1994 by mother and son team, Helena and Paul Jeffery and has since grown to become one of the leading independent providers in UK.
