LUXURY care home developer Hamberley has unveiled the first of a group of ten new state of the art homes it is building for Gracewell Healthcare.
The £8 million care home in Solihull was completed in May 2016 and has received CQC registration and marks the start of a rapid roll out of new buildings for the award-winning developer.
The team behind Hamberley founded Gracewell Healthcare in 2011 and these new buildings are the first turnkey developments that Hamberley has built exclusively for the provider since it was sold to Sunrise Senior Living and US health care real estate firm Welltower in August 2014, for £153 million.
The new care home in Solihull will provide 60 en-suite premium rooms designed to create an exceptional care environment at the heart of the Solihull community.
This home will be swiftly followed by new openings in Adderbury, Bath, Bournville, Lane End, Little Bookham, Newbury, Sutton, Sutton Coldfield and Woking.
Hamberley is now in talks with extracare operators, major social care providers and healthcare providers to provide turnkey developments – from land acquisition and planning to build and full luxury fit out.
Hamberley Director Tim Street said he was delighted that the firm was leading the way in the construction of luxury care homes.
He said: “The Solihull home, and the others in the pipeline for Gracewell, set a new standard for high end care facilities for the elderly in the UK.
“The coming year will be a very busy year for us as we prepare to hand over the nine developments agreed with the Gracewell team and progress our pipeline developments for new clients and source the next wave of land acquisitions.
“We are already in advanced talks with a number of leading providers and real estate investors and we look forward to providing them with the highest quality health care facilities.”
Tim, who with Daniel Kay, co-founded the multi award-winning Gracewell Healthcare added that Hamberley had a unique perspective on what providers wanted from their new developments.
He said: “As former operators we know exactly the challenges our clients face providing outstanding care and how the fabric and the design of the building is absolutely critical in the delivery of excellent care.”
The new Solihull home will combine boutique hotel interior design with leading-edge dementia and innovative specialist care facilities and services.
Just like boutique hotels, which have become very popular in recent years, the home will be defined by its style, warmth, homely experience and intimacy.
Amongst many innovative features the new home will include a luxurious hair and beauty spa, a nail bar, a chic cafe, a library and will have WiFi access throughout the home.
