Throughout the history of the company there has been an important and constant development and improvement programme. This has been accelerated in recent years with very intensive investment in the appearance and presentation of our homes as well as in the infrastructure, such as heating, double glazing, roofing and modern information technology.
This programme will continue over the next few years, in particular with new telephony planned for three homes. Two new homes have been built recently and two further additions are planned. Both will commence in 2016 and conclude in 2017. The first is a 15 bedroom extension to Fernbank residential home in Worthing with more communal areas and other facilities. The second is a 41 bedded dementia residential care home at Blatchington Manor, Seaford. More details of these homes will be published in the next 18 months.
