Land has been acquired to build a luxury 84-bed care home in Girton providing residential, nursing and dementia care and will create 100 jobs locally.
Construction to the home is expected to take place later this year across a one acre site on Wellbrook Way in Cambridge by award-winning care provider, Hallmark Care Homes.
Scheduled to open in early 2017, facilities at the home will 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 will include, two roof terraces, as well landscaped gardens for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Avnish Goyal, managing director of Hallmark Care Homes said: “This home will provide residents with a place where they feel safe and supported to live an active and fulfilled life.
“We have years of knowledge and experience in building award-winning, innovative care homes and we are excited to be able to create an engaging new care community in Cambridge.”
The new facility will be the Essex-based care group’s 18th care home
