Work has begun on the construction of a 77- bed care home in Banstead, Surrey which will leased by care provider, Hallmark Care Homes.

The new home, which will provide residential and dementia care is being built at a cost of £8m across a one acre site by contractor Lawrence Baker and will be the care group’s first lease deal.

When opened the home will provide a spacious, luxurious and sociable environment where family members are encouraged to spend time in the home with their loved ones, participating in activities.

Facilities will include; a cinema, hairdressing salon, therapy room and café. Each bedroom will have an en-suite bathroom and most of those on the ground floor will have access to their own patio.

Other communal areas will include an interactive kitchen where residents can assist in the preparation of meals and gardens designed by award-winning landscape architect, David Fountain.

Scheduled to open its doors to its first residents in spring 2019, the Banstead facility will be Essex-based Hallmark’s 18th care home.
