Care Plus acquires Shropshire nursing home

We are pleased to announce that Care Plus has completed the purchase of a south Shropshire nursing home, extending the wide range of support services available to Care Plus customers.

The Sandford Nursing Home provides accommodation for up to 35 residents in the market town of Church Stretton.

During Victorian and Edwardian times the town was known as ‘Little Switzerland’ because of its stunning landscape and became a health resort favoured by people looking for rest and relaxation. We are excited to offer residential care for our customers in this beautiful setting.

Les Clarke, executive director of care and support said: “We are warmly welcoming the team working at The Sandford into the Care Plus family. They will continue to provide the high standard of care and support that is so important to residents and their families.

“As life expectancies increase and more of us live to old age, we want to offer people a wider range of support to live their best life. The purchase of The Sandford allows us to provide more choice – from the reassurance of telecare support to purpose-built retirement living communities, high quality care in your own home and residential nursing accommodation.”

The purchase follows our 2019 investment of more than £1m to improve the standard of housing and facilities for older people living independently with access to support in their own home. It is part of our commitment to making care and support available to more people in our communities, which will continue with the completion of Wren House, in Stafford, in the next few months and the construction of new retirement apartments in Kinver during 2021.

Become part of Care Plus at this exciting time. For opportunities to become part of our fast-growing success and to make a difference to the lives of older people in Staffordshire and Shropshire, see our current vacancies here.
