Four Seasons to double capacity at the popular Shawcross care home

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

Four Seasons Health Care, the biggest operator of care homes in the UK, has announced that it is doubling the size of Shawcross care home on Bolton Road in Ashton-in-Makerfield, a home Four Seasons has owned since 1998. Shawcross, which currently has room for 25 residents and is always full, will gain an extra 25 bedrooms and other communal areas when the current development is completed in the autumn. Four Seasons managing director Lou Smith said that, with demand outstripping capacity, it had always part of Four Seasons’ strategy to futher develop and expand the Shawcross care home. “We have had to work around some complex covenances to gain approval for the development,” Mr Smith said. “However, with Shawcross being so popular and always full, this expansion will help create valuable extra rooms for the elderly people from the Ashton area.”
