Specialist later living developer, Castleoak, is partnering with Barchester Healthcare to bring a 55-bed care home to Seaford, completion due late 2022

Specialist care developer, Castleoak, has broken ground on a new luxury 55-bed care home for Barchester Healthcare in Seaford, East Sussex.

Port Manor Care Home, is being built by Castleoak and will be owned and operated by award-winning national care provider, Barchester Healthcare. The home will provide personalised residential, dementia and respite care for older people in Seaford and the surrounding areas from late 2022.

The luxury new home has been designed with residents’ comfort in mind with a café for residents to socialise and enjoy freshly baked treats, spa bathrooms for a luxury bath time experience, beautiful en-suite bedrooms with smart TVs, a choice of comfortable lounges, a dedicated activities room, a cinema for an authentic movie experience, and in-house hair and beauty salon for a little bit of pampering.

Once open, the home will provide a dedicated life-enrichment programme which includes a choice of daily activities so that residents can continue to do the things they love, try something new and above all keep the enjoyment in every day. Talented chefs will prepare delicious, nutritious home-cooked meals from seasonal menus, created with residents’ preferences in mind.

Operations Manager at Castleoak, Steve Bradley, said: “The physical spaces in which we live are proven to help us live longer, happier and more fulfilling lives, and Barchester will certainly provide that for future residents of Port Manor Care Home in Seaford.

“Place-making begins at the start of the build and will carry throughout as we maintain a safe and considerate environment and work to deliver a finish of the highest quality of which future residents can be truly proud. We’re pleased to be part of bringing this much-needed, health-enabling care home to East Sussex.”

Senior Property Development Manager at Barchester, Andrew Williams, commented: “We are really excited to get this project under way. Port Manor Care Home will be a fantastic addition to the local community.”

Mr Williams was joined at Seafordby Steve Bradley, Operations Manager from Castleoak to celebrate the ground-breaking of this latest site. The care home will have an on-site marketing suite that will open its doors to the local community and visitors next summer.
