Construction work to extend one of Wolverhampton’s leading nursing homes is set to get underway later this month as its owners announce they have secured funding with The Royal Bank of Scotland.
Atholl House, which is located at 98-100 Richmond Rd in Wolverhampton, is to undergo extensive renovations with the addition of a new purpose built extension which will provide space to accommodate additional en-suite bedrooms, a new day room, coffee shop and rehabilitation room. The existing Edwardian property will also undergo renovations, enhancing existing features, adding a new reception area and creating additional space for car parking outside. The extension works are expected to complete in early 2016.
Saroj Jakhu, Director of Atholl House said: “We are thrilled that we have secured funding for the extension work and that we can now press ahead with plans to improve and expand Atholl House. Demand for a space in the specialist home is increasing and so we hope that by increasing our provision we will be able to accommodate more local individuals in need of more complex care.
“The support we have received from RBS has been excellent and I am pleased that we made the decision to switch to the bank. In addition to the funding, the advice we have received from Darren Vander and his team has been excellent, they have shown real desire to get to know and understand my business and I am looking forward to continuing to work with them in the future.”
Darren Vander, Relationship Director, Healthcare at The Royal Bank of Scotland said: ”I’d like to welcome Saroj and the team at Atholl House to RBS and I am pleased that we have been able to support their plans for the development of the care home.
“The works are set to transform the nursing home and improve the facilities on offer. I am looking forward to seeing the finished project and to continuing to develop a successful relationship with the business.”
