55-bed assisted living development and 77-bed care home to be built in Essex
Work has begun on the construction of a ground-breaking 55-bed assisted living development and 77-bed care home which will provide residential and dementia care.
The £23m development is being built on a 3.3-acre site in Hutton, Essex, by Hallmark Care Homes.
The assisted living development will feature luxury one- and two-bedroom apartments, each with fully-fitted kitchens and bathrooms.
Communal areas inside the building will include a fully-staffed café/bistro, a bar and library, as well as a wellness centre with bespoke gym equipment which will enable residents to exercise at their leisure.
Facilities at the care home will include a café, cinema, hairdressers and therapy room. Each bedroom will have an en-suite wetroom and all of those on the ground floor will have access to their own patio.
Other innovations will include five roof terraces, an outdoor log cabin, as well as landscaped gardens with 77 newly-planted trees and a sensory walk for residents and visitors.
Hallmark Care Homes managing director, Ram Goyal, said: “The home and assisted living development will provide residents with a place where they feel safe and supported to live an active and fulfilled life.”
The scheme, which was designed by Ashby Design, is scheduled to open in early 2020.
