‘At Care UK, 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 from Sarisbury Green and beyond.’

Inside the care home, residents will live in a series of individual suites, connected by a lounge and dining area to form communities and combat loneliness.
