Worthing-based healthcare provider Country Living Care has acquired the Country Lodge care home in West Sussex after receiving a seven figure funding package from Allied Irish Bank (GB).
Country Living Care is a new operator launched by husband and wife, William and Deborah Andrews. The funding from the bank has supported the purchase of their first care home and will help to support their strategy to acquire further care homes as the duo look to expand their business.
Country Lodge is a highly rated care home located in High Salvington, Worthing and provides quality nursing care for elderly people in West Sussex. Facilities include permanent residency and respite care in a homely and charming flintstone Sussex house. With stunning views over the South Downs and the surrounding West Sussex countryside, the comfortable and clean nursing home is registered for 26 residents.
William Andrews, Managing Director Country Living Care said: “Following our recent move back to the UK from America, Deborah and I wanted to use our experience in the healthcare sector to run our own care home. We are delighted to acquire Country Lodge and work with our dedicated, highly trained and experienced team. Country Lodge provides superior care facilities in very tranquil and comforting surroundings for residents needing nursing care, respite care and terminally ill care.
We would also like to thank Allied Irish Bank (GB) for their support, without their financial backing and confidence in our business plan this acquisition would not have been possible. We have exciting plans to expand with future acquisitions and the funding from the bank’s local team in Brighton gives us the confidence to consider new opportunities when they arise.”
Nicky Tobin, Relationship Manager at Allied Irish Bank (GB) said: “William and Deborah both have extensive experience in business management and the healthcare sector and impressed us with their expertise, approach and business planning. I am very pleased to help them acquire their first care home, which I am sure will be the first of many as they embark on an active acquisition strategy.”
