Leading care home provider Prestige Care Group is to open a specialist dementia facility in West Sussex with support from Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks.
The 80-bed Walberton Place Nursing Homes will be the latest addition to Prestige Care’s portfolio which amounts to nearly 300 beds with another 240 in the pipeline.
Raj Singh, owner of Prestige Care Group, said: “Walberton Place Nursing Home will add to the current care offering in the region and this state-of-the-art facility has been designed to offer the highest standard of care to its residents. In particular, we wanted to create a facility that would cater for the complex needs of people living with dementia and this care home is equipped to properly support our residents and provide the specialist care that is required.
“This is the second care home we have built recently with funding from Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks, as we opened Sand Banks Care Centre, in Redcar, 18 months ago, which continues to go from strength to strength.”
The new care home will also provide new employment opportunities to the local area, with around 80 full and part time positions available, including nursing and caring roles, catering, maintenance, as well as activity co-ordinators.
Raj added: “We have been providing high-quality care for more than 20 years and an important part of our approach is becoming part of the local community. We look forward to building our team at Walberton Place and welcoming our residents when we open towards the end of 2018.”
Gail Fielding, Director of Healthcare at Yorkshire Bank, which has provided a seven figure sum for the project, said: “Prestige Care have a vast knowledge and wealth of experience when it comes to building care home facilities. And with our dedicated healthcare team at Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank, who are committed to providing tailored advice and support to our customers, it’s great to be working together on these care home developments.
“We are committed to working with our customers to fulfil their growth strategies and Prestige is overcoming a challenging environment to provide state-of-the-art facilities for the local community of Walberton.”
