The Fremantle Trust to launch new £6m care home in Stoke Mandeville


Stoke Mandeville

The Fremantle Trust, has teamed up with specialist care developer, Castleoak and the CarePlaces Fund to create a £6m premium care home in Stoke Mandeville.

The development, which will be named Fremantle Court, is set for completion in autumn 2013 and will provide excellent care support for 90 people in a two storey purpose-built building, sensitively created with a series of clustered living areas around a central hub.

Fremantle Court, which will be registered with CQC (Care Quality Commission), will meet a demand in the local area for nursing, palliative care and specialist dementia support, and will be designed to meet the criteria set out by the University of Stirling’s toolkit for promoting best practice in the design of dementia accommodation.

The partnership will see The Fremantle Trust leasing the home from the CarePlaces Fund on a 35 year contract. The fund is Castleoak’s joint venture with sustainable growth investor, Bridges Ventures, and focuses on purpose-built, high quality care homes for older people.

Commenting on the announcement, Carole Sawyers, chief executive of The Fremantle Trust, said: “This is a very exciting time for the Trust, with the opportunity to add to our existing portfolio of care homes across the region.

“The launch of this superb new scheme brings together expert design and specialist care to create a truly exceptional living space for local people.”

The care home will be built to exacting standards on the 1.6 hectare site just one mile south of Stoke Mandeville Hospital, with an emphasis on high quality personal space with rooms enjoying attractive views of the rural setting.

The scheme will be set in landscaped gardens, including courtyard gardens, residents’ allotments and individual patio areas.
