Thame’s newest care home, set to open next year, has marked its latest construction milestone with the help of a special guest.
The Care UK team and representatives from Kori Construction were joined by the Deputy Mayor of Thame, Councillor Adrian Dite, who placed the final roof tile on the roof of Cuttlebrook Hall on Stock Road in Thame.
The purpose-built care home – which is expected to welcome the first residents in October 2023 – will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist nursing dementia care for up to 68 older people, with facilities including its own cinema, hair salon and café.
Angela Zuraw, Regional Director for Care UK, said: “As one of the most recent additions to an expanding portfolio of residential care homes, Cuttlebrook Hall, our fifth home in Oxfordshire, highlights our dedication at Care UK to enhancing the provision of residential care in the region.
“As we get one step closer to opening the doors to locals, it was fantastic to welcome the Deputy Mayor of Thame. And once the home’s interior is complete, we can’t wait to give Councillor Adrian Dite the grand tour.”
Jordan Connachie, Managing Director at Kori, added: “When designed well, physical spaces have been shown to contribute to individuals living longer, more fulfilling lives.
“Cuttlebrook Hall is well on track to be able to offer this benefit to its future residents in Thame. The construction is going well, and we’re confident that we’ll be able to hand the reins over to Care UK’s seasoned team in the summer.”
Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives while also promoting independence, the new care home, which is set to open in October next year, will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities.
