Kingsley Healthcare has opened a new £12 million luxury care home in Brackley, Northamptonshire, its 31st home, which features en suite bedrooms, a cinema room, library, café, hairdressing salon, lounges and conservatory, and outside spaces including a sensory garden.
The home was designed by Leamington Spa-based Rickett Architects and built by Coventry-based Deeley Construction. It was opened by South Northamptonshire MP Andrea Leadsom and the Mayor of Brackley, Councellor Christopher Cartmell.
Home manager Sheena Croston said: “I am thrilled by the positive feedback I have had from everyone who has visited the home. Once Covid has gone away, we will be eager to build even stronger relationships with local groups and organisations and invite them into the home. It is important for us and our future residents that the home becomes a central part of the community.”
Muj Malik, Kingsley’s chief investment officer, added: “We are looking forward to serving the community of Brackley. The home will be a great anchor for us to grow in the Midlands. I am incredibly proud of our team who have got the home ready to welcome our first residents at such a difficult time.”
Brackley Care Home is one of a pipeline of next-generation nursing homes Kingsley is rolling out across the country, with next ones opening in Olney in Buckinghamshire.
Daya Thayan, chief executive of Kingsley: “We are proud to be a family-owned company and have jealously guarded our family values as we have grown. Every one of our homes has to be of a standard that we would want for our own family. In addition to providing luxury care facilities, Brackley Care Home is also delivering well-paid jobs from senior managers and nurses to chefs, support workers, maintenance and housekeepers.”
