Work starts on multi-million pound Chichester care home

April 3 2020

Work has now started to build a new multi-million care home in Chichester.

When complete, the new Care UK site, on Grosvenor Road, will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 75 older people, and will create 45 new jobs.

The two-storey home, which is expected to welcome the first residents in October 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.

Natalie Smith, development project manager for Care UK, said: “We are delighted that work has commenced at the new Chichester site, not least because this impressive development reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the city.

“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 a quality home for older people from Chichester and beyond.”

Luke Harris, senior project manager at Frontier, said: “Construction is off to a great start and we are on track to complete the scheme by Autumn 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 Chichester 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, the new Care UK 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.
