Luxury care provider Signature Senior Lifestyle has announced that it is bringing a new care and nursing home to the heart of Wandsworth, London.
Due to open its doors in late 2019, the home will be the 15th addition to the Signature family. The new home will feature 98 private apartments ranging from studios to one bedroom suites and will offer Signature’s award-winning residential and nursing care, which is based around facilities, a varied calendar of events and activities, and the provision of care.
The home will also cater for residents with dementia and has been designed using the Gold Standard framework from Stirling University. The Gold Standard is awarded by the University’s Dementia Services Development Centre to organisations who design and build outstanding environments for dementia care.
The £58 million development will include a cinema, hair salon, library, several lounges, a therapy room, bistro and a restaurant where families and residents can eat together.
Signature will create more than 120 jobs, with varied positions due to be advertised in nursing, care, catering, housekeeping, activities, maintenance and concierge.
Tom Ball, finance director at Signature Senior Lifestyle said: “Our vision is not to be the biggest but the best. We leave no stone unturned on our quest to deliver attentive, individualised care to each and every one of the residents who make their home with us – and are proud of our track record to date. We can’t wait to get started here in Wandsworth.”
