Specialist construction partner Castleoak and Care UK have celebrated the start of work on a new £6m care home in Horsham, West Sussex, that will see the delivery of the 1000th care home bed by Castleoak for Care UK.
The new care home will feature 82 en-suite bedrooms and has been sensitively designed to provide a high quality environment for full time residential care, specialist dementia care, nursing, and short term respite care.
Speaking at the start on site ceremony, Justin Daley, Construction Project Manager at Care UK, said: “We are delighted that work has begun on our new care home in Horsham. This impressive development reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care for people living in the area. Since 2000, Castleoak has assisted us in our mission to improve the everyday experiences of those living in care and we are proud to celebrate the start of this latest scheme together.”
Castleoak Chief Executive Officer, Craig Currie, added, “This landmark project for Castleoak will mark the 1000th care bed we will have delivered for Care UK. Over the course of our seventeen developments for Care UK we have established a collaborative approach to delivering projects that we know works well. This scheme will be testament to our excellent working relationship and will bring so much to the local area.”
Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives while promoting independence, the new state-of-the-art care home will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities. Each individual bedroom will have an en-suite, together with a flat-screen television, adjustable profile bed, and 24-hour nurse call system. State-of-the-art facilities for residents will include a cinema, hairdressing salon and café.
Attractive and wheelchair friendly landscaped gardens will also give residents the opportunity to enjoy all the benefits of spending time outdoors.
