Signature Senior Lifestyle has officially opened a £14m care home in Caversham, Berkshire.

Signature at Caversham offers 86 studio apartments, a café, cinema screen, Blades hair and nail salon and spa bathroom facilities, activities room, and communal garden. It worked in partnership with Beard Construction and PRP Architects to deliver the project.

Joining Signature’s 37 other care homes, the latest property will provide residential, nursing, dementia, and respite services.

‘Our care home’s design allows us to provide expert care to our residents, and to offer them a wide range of stimulating activities, supported by highly trained team members committed to delivering true peace of mind to residents, relatives and their loved ones,’ said Carmela Magbitang, general manager at Signature at Caversham.

It demonstrates Signature’s continued commitment to resident focussed, industry leading care and we look forward to working with the team on future schemes.’
