Work has begun on the construction of a ground-breaking 55 bed assisted living development and a 77 bed care home which will provide residential and dementia care.
The new luxury development is being built at a cost of £23 million across a 3.3 acre site in Hutton Essex, by multi-award-winning care provider, Hallmark Care Homes.

“The home and assisted living development will provide residents with a place where they feel safe and supported to live an active and fulfilled life.”
