New Care Home Breaks Ground in Exeter

National care provider, Barchester Healthcare recently marked the start of their newest luxury care home build in Exeter, Cumberland Grange Care Home, which is under construction by Halsall Construction.

Andy Williams, Senior Property Development Manager at Barchester met with Clive Fletcher Senior Contracts Manager for Halsall to take a tour of the work in progress, and put a silver shovel into the ground for the first time to commemorate the beginning of the build process.

After the tour, Andy said: "The Exeter Barchester site was very impressive. The new care home will be an important facility for the district and a very welcome source of employment."

The 65-bed care home in Exeter will also provide high quality care services, as well as dedicated dementia care in Barchester’s unique Memory Lane Communities.

Andy continued: “We are very excited about the construction of our new care home in and we are lucky that our prospective residents will have a home set in such beautiful grounds.

“There is a real need for quality care in the local area and our new home will definitely meet this, and potentially give a boost to employment in neighbouring communities.”

Senior Contracts Manager of Halsall Clive Fletcher commented: “we are delighted to be starting on site for our Barchester Healthcare project in Exeter. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with this valued client as we work with them to deliver their extensive programme of high quality, purpose built care homes across the UK.”

Barchester Healthcare’s Exeter care home will open in November 2020 and will deliver personalised residential care as well as personalised dementia care in Barchester’s unique Memory Lane Community.
