Elderly and specialist care operator Anson Care Services is boosting its capacity following a £1m funding boost from Santander.
The funding is being used to add nine beds and new ancillary facilities at the St Mary’s Haven home in Penzance.
Mary Anson, Managing Director, Anson Care Services Ltd, said: “Our business has grown significantly over recent years, making us one of the most respected and trusted care home providers in West Cornwall.
“The additional beds will allow us to meet the growing demand for specialist dementia and elderly care and the ancillary facilities will enable us to provide an even better service for our residents and a better place to work for our staff at St Mary’s. Santander’s specialist healthcare team worked closely with us on our growth plans and their support has been invaluable.”
Anson, which was founded by husband and wife team John Anson, a retired accountant, and Mary Anson, a qualified nurse, operates 150 beds at two residences in Redruth, two in Penzance and one in Portreath.
The new ancillary facilities include a larger conservatory, new lift shaft and staff training amenities.
Jon Pike, Relationship Director, Santander Corporate & Commercial, said: “John and Mary Anson have grown their business substantially over the years and now offer leading care accommodation and services in Cornwall. The funding provided will allow them to expand their current offering and we look forward to working with them closely in the future.”
