Leicestershire based healthcare business Alacris has taken over a Nottinghamshire care home.
The Westwolds Care Centre, which offers care for 34 people and employs 25 staff, is managed by Annette Anderson.
Akshat Jaganmohan, director of Alacris Healthcare, told the Nottingham Post: “When the opportunity arose to purchase the home, we were very interested and with Barclays support, were able to complete the deal.
“In time, we would like to expand the home to offer care for more people in the local community.”
Justin Parker, relationship manager at Barclays in Nottingham, added: “We are delighted to be able to support Alacris Healthcare Ltd with the purchase of their first care home and look forward to seeing them implement their enhanced care offering which forms part of a wider planned acquisition plan.”
Westwolds Care Centre offers specialist care for elderly people living with a range of conditions, including epilepsy, hearing impairment and deafness, Parkinson ’s disease, speech impairment, stroke and visual impairment.
The residential care home has 28 rooms with en suite toilet facilities.
Recently formed Alacris Healthcare plans to use the home to provide nursing and personal care for elderly people.
