Nursing Home and Care Suites
On 28 April 2009, Shepway District Council resolved to grant detailed planning permission for the building of a new care home in 4 acres of what used to be a Battle of Britain airfield. The site sits beside a doctors’ surgery and a new housing development of 3,000 houses.
The building is three storeys and is large enough to accommodate separate units for various levels of both physical frailty and dementia. Accommodation is provided in a range of studio, one and two bed suites with on site 24 hour care, thus ensuring a home for life. Residents have the choice over whether they wish to rent or buy on a leasehold basis.
The Care Suites provide residents with their own accommodation with front door and generous personal day space for socialising with family and friends. Communal space for socialising and dining has been incorporated and there are separate garden areas for the different groups.
Strong links with the community are being fostered with services such as social events and day care being offered within the scheme.
