A major new care home is being built in Sidcup to cater for 80 older people.

Work has already started on the £8.2million project.

Care UK and construction partner, Castleoak, have laid the foundations for the three-storey home in Frognal Avenue.

They said the first residents will arrive this time next year, and form part of a retirement village.

There will be full time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, and it will create around 100 jobs.

The home will include a cinema, café and hairdressing salon. It will have space for hobby and leisure activities and is also configured as a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge and dining room to help create close knit communities.

Safety is covered with a wheelchair friendly landscaped outdoor space that includes sensory gardens, water features and seating.

Gary Renton, project manager for Care UK, said: “This impressive development reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the town.

“We take great pride in the build quality, layout and design of each individual home, as these factors can greatly impact the everyday experiences of those living in a care environment.

“Our new care home will live up to these standards, and will provide a quality home for older people in Sidcup and beyond.”

And Stephen French, site manager at Castleoak, added: “We are on schedule to complete the scheme in December 2018.

“This is a high-profile project for Castleoak, and we are proud to be playing a part in the delivery of this much-needed new care home for the Sidcup community.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
