KCHT to build 112-bed care home in Chatham

Posted on December 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Kent Community Housing Trust (KCHT) has embarked on the construction of a new 112-bed care home in Chatham.

The new home is on the site of the former Churchlands care home and at the beginning of January, 33 residents and staff were relocated to enable the old building to be demolished to make way for a new facility that will offer specialist dementia care for older people, replacing the services formerly provided at Churchlands and another of KCHT’s care homes.
