Work has begun on the construction of a ground-breaking 72 bed care home which will provide residential, nursing and dementia care and create 60 jobs in the area.
Chamberlain Court is being built at a cost of £5.9 million on a one acre site on Mount Ephrain Road in Tunbridge Wells by leading care provider, Hallmark Care Homes.
The sites construction team were recently joined by Hallmark’s MD Avnish Goyal to officially mark the start of the build as the first foundations of the home were laid.
The home will provide a spacious, luxurious and sociable environment where family members are encouraged to spend time in the home, participate in activities and spend time with their loved ones.
Facilities at the home include; a cinema, hairdressers, barbers and therapy room. Each bedroom will have an en-suite bathroom and those on the ground floor will have access to their own patio.
Other communal areas include; two coffee shops, a celebrations room and a celebrations restaurant on the third floor of the home with an adjoining terrace, which will enable relatives to have a meal with their loved ones on a special occasion.
Outside there will an activities room for residents, an aviary and landscaped gardens with raised planters, giving residents the opportunity to get involved in the gardening at the home.
MD, Avnish Goyal said: “We have years of knowledge and experience of building award-winning care homes. We are excited to be able to create an engaging new care community at Tunbridge Wells.
“Chamberlain Court will provide residents with a place where they feel safe and supported to live an active and fulfilled live.”
