Family-run care home operator, Holy Cross Care Homes Limited has completed the development of 14 brand new assisted living bungalows in the grounds of its existing residential care home, Bradeney House, in Worfield, Shropshire. Funding to support the development was provided by Royal Bank of Scotland and Lombard.
Set amongst seven acres of communal grounds, each property offers self-contained living with two spacious double bedrooms, a contemporary wet room and an outdoor block paved patio area. The homes are eco-friendly, fuelled by solar-power and bio-mass boilers.
A team led by Kam Sangha from Royal Bank of Scotland provided Holy Cross Care Homes with funding support for the development. Jo Asbury from Lombard, the bank’s asset finance arm, also worked alongside the company to provide finance for the state of the art bio-mass boiler.
Other features at the properties include a flexible care service provided by staff from Holy Cross Care Homes and 24-hour nurse alarms and security. The development will also see a resident’s ‘Hub’ facility which will house staff accommodation to facilitate 24-hour care, a hall and kitchen available for resident celebrations, an exercise facility and a computer area.
Les Jones, Director of Holy Cross Care Homes Ltd, explains: “Assisted living provides individuals with the ability to live independently in comfort and familiarity of their own homes whilst receiving nursing care. It is a very popular option and is something that more and more of the local population are considering as they age.
“Our new development is first class and we are thrilled with the finished results. The new properties have been constructed to an extremely high spec, using the best materials and fittings available, with comfort and accessibility at the forefront of the design. The properties are set in a quiet, rural location and offer fantastic views of the local countryside whilst benefitting from the option of providing residents with up to 24hr nursing care if needed.
“The support we have received from Royal Bank of Scotland and Lombard throughout this construction has been excellent and it has enabled us to complete the project to an impeccably high standard. It has been great to work alongside such a dedicated team and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them in the future.”
Kam Sangha, Senior Healthcare Relationship Manager at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “The development at Bradeney House is very impressive. The properties have been built to an impeccable standard and will offer individuals the opportunity to continue to live in their own home safe in the knowledge that they will be able to receive the highest standard of care they need.”
