Majesticare plans state of the art care facility

Majesticare, the luxury care home group, has
submitted plans to Wiltshire County Council for the construction of a
new 58 bed purpose built care home adjacent to its existing Sampford home.

proposal is for the redevelopment of its long established existing 70
bed facility and is planned to be undertaken in two phases. Once the new
home is operational, Majesticare plans to demolish its existing home
and construct 15 close care suites in its place.

continued growth through acquisition and development underpins the
continued drive towards excellence in person centred care.  The team has
already achieved success with all of Majesticare’s  17 homes achieving 2
or 3 stars with 65% attaining 3 Star (Excellent) status with the Care
Quality Commission.

Roger Pratap, Chairman of Majesticare, said
of the development: “We are delighted to announce plans for a
replacement care home which will ensure the greatest possible levels of
comfort and care for our residents.  We have always invested heavily in
the future of our homes and embraced new ideas and facilities. The
investment at Sampford Care Home will be around £6m and we expect to
create 30 new full time equivalent jobs at the care home alone.”
