Sarisbury Green’s newest care home has marked its latest construction milestone with the help of a special guest.
The Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Mrs Pamela Bryant, joined the Care UK team and representatives from specialist construction partner, Brymor, for a ‘topping out’ ceremony at Ancasta Grove, on Barnes Lane.
The purpose-built care home – which is expected to welcome the first residents in March 2021 – will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 75 older people, with facilities including its own cinema, hair salon and café.
Natalie Smith, development project manager for Care UK, said: “It was great to celebrate such a key milestone in the construction process, marking another step closer to opening the doors to the people of Sarisbury Green. The home represents a major investment for Care UK and reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the town.
“I would like to thank the Mayor of Fareham for celebrating the occasion with us. It was a pleasure to be able to give them a special tour of the site, and we look forward to welcoming her back to the care home once it’s complete.”
The Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Mrs Pamela Bryant, said: “It was a privilege to be a part of this topping out ceremony, celebrating a milestone in the construction of a fantastic facility which has been built with residents in mind. Sarisbury Green will benefit greatly from this state-of-the-art building that will be a welcome addition for the community, and I’m excited to continue to follow the progress of the care home”.
Andy Jenkins, Project Manager for Brymor Construction, added: “It is a pleasure working with Care UK to create a welcoming and fit-for-purpose home – we could not have asked for a more cohesive approach.
“We are proud to be delivering a high-quality facility for the local community that will welcome many residents for years to come.”
Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, the new care home will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities. The layout of the building will be configured into a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge/dining room to help facilitate the creation of close knit communities.
