Surbitionian Gardens in Kingston Upon Thames, the borough’s first dementia home of its kind, was officially opened by Sushila Abraham and Anavo Director, Edward Moore on Wednesday 14th September.
The home in Surbiton will be home to 80 residents and features a variety of communal areas, including an on-site hairdresser, community space, café, and gardens.
Embracing the latest care technology, Surbitonian Gardens will also provide residents living with dementia and in need of specialist care with the best quality of life possible in an environment where they can feel truly at home and help them to remain independent for longer.
This exceptional home will also provide value for money as Kingston experiences an ageing population and increasing demand for health and social care services. The council estimates that the number of residents in the borough living with dementia is set to rise from around 1,500 to more than 2,100 in 2027.
Cllr Hamed, Portfolio Holder for Adult Social Care and Public Health, said:
“Kingston is proud to have teamed up with leading care home operator Anavo Group. This new home means we can provide residents living with dementia with the care they need and deserve – specialist care with the best quality of life possible in an environment where they can feel truly at home and stay well for longer.”-
Ed Moore, Managing Director from Anavo Group, said:
“This new home offers its residents, family, friends and the local community the chance to enjoy modern facilities in a safe, comfortable and homely environment.”
