Care home project management specialist NorthStar has partnered with local clinical commissioners, GPs, NHS representatives and other community groups in Halesworth to design a cutting-edge care centre on behalf of Castlemeadow Care.
The Care Centre in the Suffolk town will incorporate a community hub building containing NHS outreach services, day surgery, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and general health promotion facilities, 68 nursing, dementia, respite, and day care beds, and 42 Extra Care apartments. A further development of 44 extra care bungalows is part of a second phase together with an information and advice centre for people with life-limiting conditions.
Danny Sharpe, director at NorthStar, said: “After 18 months of working hard with Doctor Sanjay Kaushal of Castlemeadow Care on the designs for this innovative concept, we are incredibly happy to be in a position to move this project forward now to the next stage following the latest successful public exhibition.”
Sharpe said that feedback from the public consultation was “positive” with people very much welcoming the new facility and integrated services for people where they live rather than travelling far and wide.
“The HHC complex would be the focus for developing a model of care that actively promotes health, rather than just dealing with sickness,” he added. “The masterplan includes proposals for a new sports hall to be developed and operated by a separate entity but which will be available to residents of the new health and care village as well as the wider population of Halesworth town and beyond.”
