Our 87-bed care home at 160-164 Hurlingham Road, SW6 3NG will be a modern specialist facility. The design will include modifications to the public realm to provide a piazza that sets the care home back from its neighbours and creates an aesthetic improvement that all can enjoy, as well as providing that specialist care for its residents.

Modern care schemes are designed from the inside out to ensure they operate and function in appropriately sized "households" or "communities", where bedroom clusters range between 6-10 beds. This type of specialist building caters for elderly people who are either at the end of their life with very high 24hr end of life care needs, have complex nursing needs, or are living with advanced stage 6-7 dementia.

Our care home will help meet social care needs for Hammersmith and Fulham by providing a modern facility fit for the future that provides care close to home for Hammersmith and Fulham residents. Our analysis indicates that improved care provided locally could divert cost away from the local NHS and care sector, benefits worth over £170,000 per annum.

As well as delivering for Hammersmith and Fulham in terms of its social care needs, our analysis shows that a new care home on Hurlingham Road will deliver significant benefits for the local economy and in terms of local housing supply. Both the construction and operational phases of development will deliver a combined 195 jobs and support additional jobs in the supply chain. Millions will be contributed to the local economy in both phases. Providing specialist care facilities locally, could also free up homes locally (up to 24 per year) particularly larger family units which would represent much needed additional supply locally.
