Sandstone Care Group continues growth with fifth acquisition


A Warrington headquartered care home operator has added to its growing portfolio by acquiring a successful home in Merseyside.

Sandstone Care Group has purchased the Oak Springs Care Home in Wavertree, Liverpool.

The 74-bed home offers a mix of residential, dementia and early onset dementia care across three floors.

The home, which is rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission, becomes the fifth home in the Sandstone Care Group.

The company’s other homes are St Helens Hall, also in Merseyside, Longridge Hall and Fleetwood Hall in Lancashire and The Oaks in Newtown, Wales.

Funding for the acquisition was provided by Simply, a Scottish-based property developer with a dedicated and rapidly growing care division.

James Parkin, a director of Sandstone Care Group, said: “We are delighted to have successfully completed the purchase of Oak Springs.

“It is a well-run home with a strong reputation within the local community. Occupancy levels are currently in excess of 90%.

“In due course, we will be looking to invest further in the home to ensure that its accommodation and other facilities continue to be of the highest possible standard.”

In its most recent report, the CQC singled out registered manager Andrea Lyon for particular praise, commenting that she is “committed to enriching the lives of people who live at Oak Springs”.

The home first opened in 2015 and employs 72 staff.

Richard Shore, a fellow director of Sandstone Care Group, said: “We believe Oak Springs is an excellent addition to our expanding portfolio of care homes.

“The management team share the same philosophy of ensuring residents receive person-centred care and are shown compassion, dignity and respect at all times.”

Sandstone Care Group is actively looking at several other opportunities in England and Wales to further expand its portfolio.
