Sanctuary buys three care homes from LNT
Housing and care provider Sanctuary Group has purchased three care homes from LNT Care Developments.
he homes, which will be built in Pensby in Merseyside, Nantwich in Cheshire and Devizes in Wiltshire, are ‘turnkey’ properties, which means Sanctuary will take on ownership and management once they are built and fitted out. Their locations have been carefully selected to dovetail with the group’s existing care homes, which are managed by the group’s subsidiary Sanctuary Care.
Sanctuary Care runs 68 homes around the country,most of which are in the midlands and south, serving thousands of residents. The Pensby home will have 60 bedrooms and is due to open in January 2018, the Nantwich home, also 60 beds, is due to open in April 2018 and offering 66 bedrooms, the home in Devizes is due to open in July 2018.
The three new homes will be managed by Sanctuary Care. Mark McCarthy, group director of care, said the new homes would provide stylish, contemporary and high quality environments.
“Sanctuary Care is keen to provide the best possible quality homes to residents and their families, and in particular to ensure that we offer dementia-friendly surroundings,” said Mr McCarthy.
All three homes will benefit from ground source heat pumps, solar thermal panels and LED lighting.
