A NEW £13 million luxury care home is set to open in Dawlish early next year, offering care for up to 71 people and creating 75 new jobs.
Claremont Manor, on course to be opened at the start of 2024 by the Maria Mallaband Care Group, will provide an exceptional living environment with; 71 en-suite bedrooms across three floors, multiple lounges, restaurants, communal areas and a biodiverse garden.
Located in the Dawlish, the brand new three-storey home will have landscaped grounds, with both private and shared patios and quiet terraces, all surrounded by sensitive planting to encourage bees, butterflies and other wildlife to visit the gardens.
The home will also have a number of luxury facilities such as a Hair & Beauty suite, cinema room, wellness suite, private dining room and to encourage multi-generational visiting a grandchildren’s room.
Annelli Chatfield, Group Commissioning Manager at Maria Mallaband Care Group said: 'Claremont Manor will ensure the local community has the opportunity to live in a luxurious environment that promotes personalisation and independence. This home is going to be something spectacular, from the design to the finishes and chef-curated menus.'
Claremont Manor is the latest home to be developed by the Maria Mallaband Care Group, which has over 80 care homes across the country.
A company spopkesperson said: 'This project comes with many high expectations after the success of the other recently opened homes, Chartwell Manor, located in Aylesbury and Lace Hill Manor, located in Buckingham. These two purpose-built homes have created over 140 jobs locally, and have each made good on their commitment to supporting their local communities.'
Annelli Chatfield adds: 'We know that there is a demand for more support from care homes, especially in Dawlish and the surrounding towns. Our sister home in Ottery St Mary, Kings Manor, also offers luxury living, great facilities and lifestyle-enhancing care, which is why we want to continue to offer this exceptional care service to the local community.'
The new private care home, designed for residential, nursing, palliative, respite and dementia care, is under construction by contractor Lawrence Baker Ltd with the interiors designed by Rebecca Hunter of Rebecca Hartley Interiors and is set to open in early 2024.
The spokesperson added: 'Not only will this new luxury care home be the first of its kind to open in the Dawlish area and be responding to the need for more social care within the community, but it will also be creating jobs for local carers, qualified nurses, administrators, hospitality professionals and more.'
