Avante Care & Support is to build a state-of-the-art care home for older people in Westgate on Sea, Kent.
The care home operator acquired a one acre site on Canterbury Road, Westgate on Sea on 7 August.
Stuart Cross, Managing Director, said: “I am delighted to announce the purchase of this site in Westgate on Sea and look forward to sharing our plans for the future with the local community. The new home will provide much needed care for an older population and meet the increasing demand for high quality care homes. I am also delighted that the new care home will open up a number of employment opportunities to Thanet once the home has been built.
“Our vision for all our homes and services is ‘communities where everyone has a vibrant and fulfilling life’. We will be looking to make this vision a reality for the people of Thanet.”
The news follows Avante’s acquisition of Chaucer House care home in Canterbury in March.
Avante Care & Support is a not for profit charitable organisation that has provided dementia, nursing and mental health care for nearly 30 years.
The charity owns and operates ten residential care homes and two home care and wellbeing support services across Kent, Bexley and Greenwich and provides specialist care and support to over 1,000 people.
