Over the next ten years, Jewish Care will need over £100m to care for vulnerable people. We are relying on at least £40m of this sum being donated by generous supporters in our community.
All our existing buildings as well as our new developments exceed health and safety requirements and are warm, modern, bright and inviting. We spend more than £1m a year on our ongoing maintenance and refurbishment programme alone.
Hendon Independent Living Scheme
Jewish Care has been granted planning permission by Borough of Barnet to redevelop the former Ella & Ridley Jacobs Care Home in Hendon into 32 one and bedroom independent living apartments for older people in the community.
With growing numbers of older people with support needs wanting to live in their own home this is the first of several independent living schemes the organisation is planning in the coming years. Works are expected to begin later this year.
We hope to see residents moving into this fantastic new development in the heart of Hendon by spring 2018.
A new Care Campus in Stanmore
The largest project we are planning, and probably our most ambitious to date, is the development of a care campus on the site of the Princess Alexandra Home in Stanmore.
The £45 million project will aim to create a unique care campus with a range of services to meet the needs and desires of older people in the local community. A new 64 bed nursing and dementia residential care home will sit alongside Assisted Living Studios and 48 Independent Living one and two bedroom apartments. The site will also house a day care facility, a restaurant, synagogue, shop, hairdresser, and leisure and well-being facilities for the residents and visitors to enjoy on a daily basis.
The project will be delivered in phases with the new home being built alongside the existing home. Current residents will then move into the new home before the full demolition of the existing home takes place, and the second phase of the building works, the development of independent living apartments, begins.
As with other recently built care homes, the new home in Stanmore will be arranged in a ‘cluster model’ with 16 bedrooms sharing a home-style kitchen, dining room and living space. This design gives residents the opportunity to develop more individual relationships with residents and staff teams alike.
New to the Jewish Care offering will be the suite of Assisted Living Studios designed to provide a bridge between care home living and Independent Living.
All residents as well as members of the community will be able to make good use of the communal facilities that campus living provides.
With no government funding available for the development of new resources, the total cost of this project will need to be met through fundraising efforts.
Detailed plans for the build are being developed and contractors will be appointed later in the year. No work will begin until we have successfully fundraised for this project.
