Work has begun on construction of a £20m Hallmark luxury care home in Eastbourne, Sussex.
The home, which will be built by Hallmark’s sister company, Savista Developments, will provide residential and dementia care.
The site’s construction team were joined by Conservative MP Caroline Ansell, Deputy Mayor, Councillor Sammy Choudhury, Hallmark’s Managing Director Ram Goyal and Chair Avnish Goyal to officially mark the start of the build.
Chair of Hallmark Care Homes and Managing Director of Savista Developments, Avnish Goyal, said: “We are proud that Savista Developments has started its fifth care home project since launching in September last year and combined with 23 years’ experience with building award winning care homes we are excited to be able to create a luxurious care home for the Eastbourne community and to continue the partnership between Hallmark Care Homes and Savista Developments. Residents will enjoy some of the latest features in care and design and live active and fulfilled lives.”
The care home, which is scheduled to open its doors in late 2021, will include residences for couples complete with fitted kitchen and bathroom, and communal areas will include a café, ice cream parlour, state-of-the-art cinema and a luxurious hairdressers and therapy room. The home will have an abundance of outdoor space on all floors, including terraces, a summer garden bar, winter garden activity centre and half an acre of landscaped gardens with a unique woodland walkway for residents and visitors to enjoy.
