Multi-award-winning care provider, Hallmark Care Homes, has exchanged contracts on a 1.79-acre site on Cypress Drive in Cardiff to develop a new, circa 80-bed, residential, nursing and dementia care home.

The proposed £28m project will provide an exceptional, high-quality care home for older people including state of the art amenities to provide the highest level of care for its residents. The project will draw on the latest technology in the sector and will comprise an array of extensive communal facilities. 

Essex-based care provider, Hallmark Care Homes who operate 19 homes, six which are based in Wales will be responsible for planning, design, and interior fit-out of the new scheme. 

The family-run business also has plans to open two new homes this year in West Sussex and Somerset.

Managing Director of Hallmark Care Homes, Aneurin Brown, said: “We are very pleased to acquire this site in Cardiff to meet the growing demand for specialist care in the area. Our proposed development will provide a beautiful and supportive environment for local people to thrive, utilising our 26 years of care experience. We’ll deliver much-needed care beds to the community as well as modern facilities and communal spaces which will enable residents to socialise with their family and friends.”

In June, Hallmark will be inviting the community for its feedback on proposals for development, ahead of the submission of a planning application.
