With facilities including a cinema, hair salon and café, the care home has been designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, and 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.

Peter Griffiths, development project manager for Care UK, said: “As one of the latest additions to a growing portfolio of residential care homes, the Basingstoke site represents a major investment for Care UK, and reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the town.”

Sarisbury Green, which is expected to welcome its first residents in March 2021, will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 75 older people, with facilities including a cinema, hair salon and café.

Natalie Smith, development project manager for Care UK, said: “It was great to celebrate such a key milestone in the construction process, marking another step closer to opening the doors to the people of Sarisbury Green. The home represents a major investment for Care UK and reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the town.”

Care UK has opened 44 new homes since 2013 and expects to open around 20 new homes by the end of 2021 in other locations, including Quorn, Basingstoke, Haywards Heath and Chichester.
