Adara Group in Northampton has announced the acquisition of two care homes through a funding package provided by Royal Bank of Scotland.
Burlington Hall at Woburn Sands in Buckinghamshire and The Shrubbery in Higham Ferrers in Northamptonshire have been bought by the group, which was founded by care home operator Sue Hanspaul and husband Mike and Sandy.
Sue Hanspaul, director at Adara Group, who has been involved in running both homes since their start-up, said: “I am so pleased to complete the acquisition of Burlington Hall and The Shrubbery giving us 100% control.
“These are homes I know very well having been involved in their running since they were both established. We have plans to look at all aspects of the homes and renovation work has commenced at Burlington Hall to modernise and improve the facilities.
“Our focus is on our residents and ensuring they have access to the highest possible standards of care in comfortable surroundings. Graham Tallyn at the Royal Bank of Scotland has done a great job in supporting us with this transaction, he has been flexible and supportive.”
Burlington Hall and The Shrubbery provide care for a combined 98 residents with physical disability and dementia.
Graham Tallyn, relationship director, Healthcare at Royal Bank of Scotland, added: “The team at the Adara Group are entirely committed and focused on delivering excellent facilities and standards of care for the elderly.
“Their acquisition of the two homes in their own right is a logical and welcome way forward for them and I am sure they will invigorate a fresh new focus for both homes. I have been very impressed with Sue, Mike and Sandy who all bring a huge amount of knowledge and experience.”
