Hallmark moves into assisted living
16 September, 2020
Major provider Hallmark Care Homes has created a new retirement living brand called Santhem Residences.
Their first project is “Santhem Residences Shenfield”, a luxury retirement living village in Shenfield, Essex with 55, one- and two-bedroom apartments shortly to be released for sale, the apartments are scheduled to open in spring 2021.
Facilities at this £20 million project will include a restaurant and bar with a highly trained chef, a cinema, café, gym with a range of classes tailored to over 65s and a beauty salon. There will also be landscaped gardens and private outdoor space in the form of patios, balconies and roof terraces.
The Essex-based company will be overseen by Avnish Goyal as chief executive, running alongside his role as chief executive of Savista Developments and chair of Hallmark Care Homes.
Santhem Residences will work closely with its sister company, Savista Developments to source land, obtain planning permission and build and fit out Santhem’s assisted living projects into the next decade.
“I am pleased to launch our first retirement village scheme Santhem Residences, which has been named after our wonderful parents, Santosh and Hemraj,” said Avnish Goyal.
“This exclusive retirement village in Essex is the first of its kind but its creation and ethos have been decades in the making. It began with myself and my brothers and our aspiration for our parents to have the retirement lifestyle they deserved.
“Santhem Residences will give residents the freedom to live the life they desire, with equal opportunities for socialising and peaceful privacy, so should the resident wish to spend more time on existing hobbies or discover new passions, there will always be an abundance of events, trips, clubs and activities for them to get involved in at their leisure.”
