Building works are progressing well at Old Road in Eastern Enfield as a new Enfield Council care home reaches its highest point with a traditional ‘topping out’ ceremony to mark this milestone.

It will provide care and accommodation for 70 older people in the borough and is due to be completed in November this year.

It’s an attractive development replacing a previous home on this site.

It will also provide state of the art care home places for the current residents at Coppice Wood Lodge and Bridge House, both council - run residential care homes.

Cllr Alev Cazimoglu, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Health & Adult Social Care, said: “This new purpose built care home for older people will contribute to ensuring the Council has sufficient residential and nursing care capacity to meet the needs of Enfield’s residents moving forward.

“The new care home will be a bright modern building with excellent facilities, specifically designed to meet residents’ needs.

"It will be fully equipped with adapted ensuite bathrooms, activity rooms and a landscaped garden complete with seating areas and wheelchair accessible paths.

“The 70 bedrooms will be split into groups of 10-14, each with their own lounge and dining rooms which will help provide a homely environment for the people who will live here.

“Last October the council agreed to build another care home to meet the growing demands of an ageing population.”

Neil Franklin, area director at Morgan Sindall, said: “It is an enormous privilege to take part in this ceremony which celebrates a key milestone in the construction of Enfield Council care home.

We are incredibly proud to be delivering this development that will enhance the comfort and wellbeing of 70 older people in the area.

“The traditional topping out ceremony is a great way to celebrate the progress of a building and it is wonderful to see the care home continuing to take shape, ahead of its completion in November.”

Cllr Cazimoglu continued, “Residents from Coppice Wood Lodge and Bridge House will be the first to move in, and there are plans for the new home to provide nursing care for people living with dementia.”
