Croft sold using central register

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

Independent specialists in health and long term care property, GLP, have recently completed the sale of The Croft residential care home in Whalley, Clitheroe in Lancashire, registered for 25 elderly residents. The home was sold using GLP¹s central register medium, specifically aimed at smaller, good quality care homes. The sale, which was handled on behalf of the executor of Miss E Coleman, was to Lancashire Nursing & Care Homes Ltd which already owns a number of homes in Lancashire. GLP director Fiona Gilbert said the sale of The Croft underlined the continuing activity in the healthcare market place. “We have high demand for quality homes and are in constant dialogue with good quality purchasers who are continuing to actively seek opportunities,” Ms Gilbert said. Ms Gilbert said that, according to a study recently published by the Office of National Statistics, the number of residential and nursing places for elderly people will need to expand by approximately 65 per cent to 670,000 over the next 30 years
