A new 58-bed residential care home for elderly people has been completed in Caterham and named Elizabeth Court. Specialist contractor Castleoak Construction Healthcare has completed the new £2.4 million care home, the first project within an externalisation programme being carried out by Anchor Trust for Surrey County Council. Located at Caterham Village – the new urban village developed by Linden Homes on the site of a former army barracks, which includes residential, retail and commercial accommodation – Elizabeth Court is arranged into five group living units, with all residents having single ensuite bedrooms.
