The Care Home Group is promising residents at its luxury Care Community in Yeovil 5-star hotel-style surroundings and service.
New images of the first phase of Yeovil Care Community show the beautiful boutique interiors and fittings that await the first residents, due to move in from this August.
The £450,000 makeover of the former Latimer Lodge Care Home, on Preston Road, will mark the launch of the first Care Community of this type in the South West.
Unlike normal care homes residents will have the opportunity to buy their care studio giving them the chance to downsize from a larger house whilst maintaining the financial stability of owning a property.
Yeovil Care Community, run by The Care Home Group, is one of the first in the UK to offer this innovative property investment opportunity.
The luxury home will feature room service, concierge service, fine dining, a hair and beauty salon and a chauffeur-driven Bentley on standby.
The Care Home Group CEO Sean Murray said he was delighted to be able to reveal the high spec interiors for the the flagship Care Community.
He said: “Our number one priority is to deliver the highest quality, truly personalised care for our residents, but in a first class hotel environment.
“We want our residents, and owners, to be able to enjoy the same level of luxury and comfort in their day to day living that they would have if they were staying in a high end hotel.
“We believe giving people the opportunity to buy their own care studio will give them the ability to make a smart decision about both their care and their finances. This gives people a way to downsize at a time when they may need more support, but also retain ownership of property.
“As a local businessman I’m thrilled that we’re launching the first of our innovative Care Communities here in Yeovil next month.”
Residents can enjoy the independence and privacy of their own en-suite care studio whilst enjoying excellent standards of care and support and a five-star hotel quality of service.
The group is currently acquiring former care homes in the Somerset region and transforming them into state of the art Care Communities. Yeovil Care Community, on Preston Road, is the first of these innovative schemes.
The company’s care services business, 5 Star Care Home Management Ltd, will operate each property.
Latimer Lodge at Yeovil Care Community will feature 13 luxury en-suite care studios, it will be shortly followed by the refurbishment of the adjacent Tyndale building, which will feature a further 24+ en-suite care studios.
