Larger care home could be built in Hampshire
People choosing a care home in Hampshire could get better facilities in future after a larger home was proposed to be built on the site of a squash club.
Shelbourne Senior Living has applied to demolish the Windsor and Eton Squash Club and replace it with a 72-bed care home, as well as providing facilities for Mencap and the British Red Cross, the Maidenhead Advertiser reports.
Work on the £16 million plans will begin in May 2012 if planning permission is granted, with the new care home to open in summer 2013.
Meanwhile, provision for squash players has been arranged at Windsor Leisure Centre, and a proposal to build a £200,000 side extension with four new courts and a seating area has been put forward.
People paying for care were recently told the Grovewood House Care Home in Northumberland has put together a recipe book to raise funds for residents.
