Care home with views of Windsor Castle celebrates milestone

August 10 2017

Care UK has moved a step closer to delivering a new care home in Windsor, with a ‘topping out’ ceremony held on site to mark the latest construction milestone.

The new home, which will offer views of Windsor Castle, forms part of the Castle View £24.6 million retirement village.

Mayor of Windsor, Councillor John Lenton and Mayoress Margaret Lenton, joined the team from Care UK, representatives from developer and construction partner, Castleoak, and CEO of Castle Retirement Living, Robin Hughes, to celebrate the latest project milestone at the Helston Lane site.

The purpose-built, four-storey care home – which is expected to welcome its first residents in autumn 2018 – will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 72 older people, with facilities including a cinema, café and hairdressing salon, as well as a wheelchair friendly, landscaped sensory garden.

This home will share the site with 130 independent lifestyle apartments for the over 55s which have been developed by Castle Retirement Living.

Justin Daley, construction project manager for Care UK, said: “As the latest addition to a growing portfolio of residential care homes, the Windsor site represents a major investment for Care UK and reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the town. We’re on track to realise Care UK’s vison for the home as part of the care village and wanted to take the opportunity to acknowledge progress and celebrate the ‘topping out’ with our construction partners and other stakeholders. We are delighted that the Mayor and Mayoress of Windsor were able to take the time out to celebrate the occasion with us and look forward to welcoming them back to the care home once complete.”

Doug Jones, MD at Castleoak, added: “It is a pleasure working with Care UK yet again to create a welcoming and fit-for-purpose home. We could not have asked for a more cohesive approach from Care UK. We are proud to be delivering a high-quality facility for the local community that will welcome many residents for years to come.”
