Major developments to expand our “brand of high-quality care”
Posted on June 4, 2015
We’re thrilled to announce our plans for a 35-bed extension and addition of a new social centre to Scunthorpe-based Phoenix Park Care Village along with an extensive refurbishment programme and 8-bed extension at Little Acres in Nottinghamshire. We’ve also taken over the recently renamed care home ‘The Fieldings’, also in Nottinghamshire, completing an extensive overhaul of the environment, staff and processes to transform this home for the better. Our Developments Director, Simon Van Herrewege, is hoping for more “quality acquisitions” in this latest phase of growth. In a recent interview he said: “We are proud of our reputation for providing a high-quality standard of care tailored to each individual, which we have worked hard to achieve. “Our principles are simple, we offer comfortable, homely and safe living in a friendly and sociable environment. We are now in a position to expand this offering through developing our existing care homes and by acquiring new homes. “This is an exciting time for the company, with these latest developments heralding our ambitious plans to expand our brand of high-quality care. Our aim is to grow the company further as a result of our ambition to develop new facilities, and find good quality acquisitions, be it a group provider of care homes, or individual care operators. We are always interested in on or off market opportunities.” Phoenix Park Care Village was a finalist in the National Healthcare Design Awards 2010 when it was first completed and we are very excited about the addition of a new social centre. The work is already underway and expected to be completed in March 2016 costing about £2.5 million. The refurbishment programme at Little Acres, a specialist adult home for those with learning disabilities, is underway. The extension work started in April and should be finished by September 2015 at a cost of about £400,000. The existing home will also be refurbished, which has involved residents and staff choosing their own décor, furniture, fabric, flooring and finishes from a range of options. We now have 60 homes located across the UK and we continue to provide a wide range of care services, including care for older people, residential nursing, mental illness and learning disability care as well as supported living, extra care housing, dementia care, palliative care nursing and respite care.
