Work starting on a new care home in Basingstoke brings total number of Care UK homes under construction to eleven

December 4th 2019
Work has just started on the construction of a new care home in Basingstoke which, when it opens in 2021, will bring Care UK’s tally of care homes to over 130
When complete, Care UK’s Dashwood Manor, on Shortwoodcopse Lane, will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 70 older people, and will create over 60 jobs. The two-storey home, which is expected to welcome the first residents in the spring of 2021, will include facilities such as a cinema, café and hair 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.
Peter Griffiths, development project manager for Care UK, said: “I am very proud to be working with our developers to create this wonderful new home for the people of Basingstoke. We have used our experience of developing over 30 new homes in the past five years to ensure that Dashwood Manor will not only be a fantastic place to live but will also be a great working environment designed to help the care team deliver the very best support to the residents in bright, airy surroundings.”
John Austin, Development Director at Hamberley Development, said: “Construction is off to a great start and we are on track to complete the scheme by May 2021. As a developer of best in class care homes we’re thrilled to be working with Care UK on this much needed, high quality development for the people of Basingstoke and the surrounding area. We’re already looking forward to reaching our next milestone in the coming months.”
Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, Dashwood Manor 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.
