Luxury care provider Signature Senior Lifestyle has announced that it is bringing a new state-of-the-art care and nursing home to the heart of Wandsworth, London.
Due to open its doors in late 2019, the home will be the 15th addition to the Signature family. The stunning new home will feature 98 private apartments ranging from studios to one bedroom suites and will offer Signature’s award-winning residential and nursing care, which is based around outstanding facilities, a varied calendar of events and activities, and the provision of compassionate, tailored, person-centred care.
The home will also cater for residents with dementia and has been designed using the Gold Standard framework from Stirling University. The Gold Standard is awarded by the University’s acclaimed Dementia Services Development Centre to organisations who design and build outstanding environments for dementia care.
The £58m development will include a cinema, hair salon, library, several luxurious lounges, a therapy room, bistro and a restaurant where families and residents can eat together and enjoy the fine dining offered by talented chefs.
The investment reaffirms the company’s commitment to exceptional standards of care and nursing services, focusing on affluent areas where the demand for the best possible care provision is not currently being met.
Signature of Wandsworth will bring with it more than 120 jobs, with varied positions due to be advertised in nursing, care, catering, housekeeping, activities, maintenance and concierge.
Tom Ball, Finance Director at Signature Senior Lifestyle said:
“We are delighted to be bringing our new care home to Wandsworth, and are hugely excited to become a part of the local community here in South West London.
“There is a need for high quality care and nursing beds in the South East, so hope that this facility can help to meet this.
“However, our vision is not to be the biggest but the best. We leave no stone unturned on our quest to deliver attentive, individualised care to each and every one of the residents who make their home with us – and are proud of our track record to date.
“We can’t wait to get started here in Wandsworth.”
