Porthaven Commences Construction of 10th Care Home in Chipping Norton

Porthaven Care Homes commences construction of a new care home in Chipping Norton this month as part of the redevelopment of the former Penhurst School on New Street. The home will be built to Porthaven’s award winning specification, and will provide 24-hour residential and nursing care for the elderly, including residents living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

The home will comprise 58 spacious bedrooms, each with its own wetroom, and residents will benefit from numerous communal facilities throughout the home including a café, hair salon, leisure and wellness room, a private dining room for special family occasions, as well as several lounges and dining rooms, with each room being designed to incorporate the best of current innovation in care home design whilst maintaining a warm, safe, comfortable and homely environment.

John Storey, Chief Executive and Founder of Porthaven commented “We are very excited about this new home which will open in Spring 2016. Not only will we be providing a much needed service for the people of Chipping Norton and the surrounding Cotswolds, but the home will also directly employ over 70 local people as well as, we anticipate, become a valuable part of the local community.”
