Registered charity Sheffcare has completed the acquisition of a purpose-built care home in Sheffield.
Haddon Court, an 81-bed home that was built in the 1990s, will be substantially redesigned and refurbished in order to provide replacement accommodation for Sheffcare’s existing Knowle Hill care home.
Chief Executive Belinda Black said: “This is great news for us, as it ensures the continuing success of the charity and as this will be an 80 bed home, it will also help generate valuable further income.
“This is a very attractive home with views over a lake and the church. Once our work is completed, we will be able to offer superior facilities for both residents and staff.”
Sheffcare is a registered charity operating 10 homes across the Sheffield area. The company began operating on a not for profit basis in 1993, when a number of care homes were transferred out of the local authority into its ownership.
Belinda added that the decision to relocate had been taken only after all other options – including the building of an extension at the current site – had been fully investigated and found to be unviable.
She added: “I am confident that with residents and staff all moving together, we will be able to keep disruption to an absolute minimum and that everybody will appreciate the upgraded rooms and en-suite facilities the new property will offer.”
Ian Wilkie, Director of HPC, who handled the sale on behalf of the vendor, said: “We are delighted to have once again acted successfully on behalf of this established client. We were also pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Belinda and her team at Sheffcare to assist in enhancing their portfolio.”
