Greensleeves Care has begun construction of a new state-of-the-art 75-bed care home in Seal, Kent.
Due to open in late 2017, the home will provide nursing and residential care and create over 100 jobs.
Paul Newman, chief executive of Greensleeves Care, said: “We are delighted to be able to increase the number of people we can support in the local Kent area. The new home will also provide a great opportunity for the local market in terms of jobs and will offer the highest standards of care in an attractive setting.”
The home is being built by R Durtnell & Sons, whose previous projects include the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate, as well as bespoke residential homes and a wide range of educational buildings.
John Durtnell, chairman of Durtnell Ltd, added: “We are delighted to be involved with Greensleeves Care in providing this high quality care home which will increase choice for those seeking care in Sevenoaks.”
Greensleeves Care is a not for profit care provider with more than 20 homes across southern England.
The Greensleeves Home Trust was formed from the Women’s Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS) in 1997. Its names stems from the green sleeved uniform worn by members of the WRVS.
