Castleoak creates £6.5 million care home development in Shinfield
Updated: Jun 9, 2020
Care UK and Castleoak have celebrated the start of work on a new £6.5 million care home development in Shinfield near Reading. This is our 22nd care home collaboration over 22 years, and another high quality specialist development conceived by Castleoak.
When complete, the care home will provide full time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 68 people and will create over 100 jobs.
The construction follows in-depth demographic and care gap analysis by Castleoak's development team which established the need for a high-quality care home in the area, before the team acquired the site and gained planning permission.
Gary Renton, construction project manager for Care UK said "We are delighted that work has begun on the new care home in Shinfield. At Care UK, we take great pride in the build quality, layout and design of each individual home, as these factors can greatly impact the everyday experiences of those living in a care environment. Our new care home will live up to these standards and will provide a quality home for older people from Shinfield and beyond."
