Work starts on multi-million pound Sarisbury Green care home

October 19 2019

Care UK with development and construction partners, Brymor and Aecom, have celebrated the start of work on a new £8.5m care home in Sarisbury Green.

When complete, the purpose-built home on Barnes Lane will provide full time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 75 older people, and will create 84 jobs.

The two-storey home, which is expected to welcome its first residents in Spring 2021, 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.

Claire Ellam, development project manager for Care UK, said: “We are delighted that work has begun on the new care home in Sarisbury Green, 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 a quality home for older people from Sarisbury Green and beyond.”

Steve Perkins, contracts manager at Brymor, said: “Construction of this new care home has got off to a great start, and we are on schedule to complete the scheme in Spring 2021. This is another high quality development conceived by Brymor, and we are proud to also be progressing with construction of this much needed new care home for the Sarisbury Green community.”

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.
