Work starts on multi-million pound Ashford care home

May 16 2018

Work has begun on a new £6.5 million care home which will provide quality care for older people in Ashford. 

Care UK and specialist construction partner, Jenner Contractors, have celebrated the start of work on the purpose-built home on Kennington Road. When complete, the new care facilities will provide full time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 68 older people, and will create over 100 jobs. 

The three-storey home, which is expected to welcome its first residents in summer 2019, will include facilities such as a cinema, café and hairdressing salon. Secure and wheelchair-friendly landscaped outdoor space will include sensory gardens, water features and seating to give residents the opportunity to spend quality time outdoors.

Justin Daley, project manager for Care UK, said: “We are delighted work has begun on the new care home in Ashford, not least because this impressive development reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the town. 

“At Care UK, we take great pride in the build quality, layout and design of each individual home, as these factors can greatly impact the everyday experiences of those living in a care environment. Our new care home will live up to these standards, and will provide an excellent home for older people in Ashford and beyond.”

Nick Barnes, construction director at Jenner Contractors, said: “Construction of this high-quality new care facility has got off to a great start, and we are on schedule to complete the scheme in September 2019. This is a high-profile project for Jenner Contractors, and we are proud to be playing a part in the delivery of this much-needed new care home for the Ashford community.”
