Small provider looks to grow in Shropshire


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

Morris Care, which owns and operates three nursing homes in Shropshire, is actively looking to expand its business at sites within an hour-and-a-half¹s drive time of its current nursing home locations. The Morris Care Centre in Wellington, near Telford, houses two nursing homes ­ Wrekin Court for frail elderly people and Wellington Court, specifically designed for younger disabled residents. Radbrook nursing home for frail elderly people, is located just outside Shrewsbury town centre in a highly popular residential area. Morris Care chief executive Sue Humphries said all three homes were consistently fully occupied. “We have worked hard at achieving the level of quality and care within our homes and this has been rewarded, not only by our good reputation, but by all the homes being consistently full,” Mrs Humphries said. “We are now looking to build our portfolio, either through buying an appropriate existing nursing home to refurbish and bring into the Morris Care fold, or through new build opportunities.
