BetterCare buys two care homes from Endeavour


Posted on May 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The BetterCare group has acquired two purpose-built nursing homes ­ Riseborough and Henleigh Hall ­ from Endeavour Health Care. The 74-bed Riseborough in Bournemouth was built in 1999 and was runner-up in the 2000 Pinders Healthcare Design Awards. Facilities include 100% single ensuite bedrooms, coffee shop, piano lounge, bar, chapel, cinema, multi-sensory room, hairdressing and massaging suites. Henleigh Hall, in Sheffield, is a 62 single ensuite bed home which opened in 1996. Currently enjoying very high occupancy levels the home provides a regional training base for the Royal College of Nursing. BetterCare¹s development director Paddy Hehir said both acquisitions exceeded the National Minimum Standards and complemented his company¹s existing portfolio in terms of standards and geographical fit. The BetterCare group now operates 1,993 beds and employs more than 2,600 staff in 28 locations across the UK.
