Oakdale Care Group has added LNT Care Developments’ Timken Grange care home in Duston, Northampton to its property portfolio.
Timken Grange is a state-of-the-art 66 bed care home, including cinema, library, garden room and tea shop surrounded by landscaped gardens.
Andrew Long, managing director at Oakdale Care Group said: “We are delighted with this location and have been warmly received by the Parish Council through the planning process. We hope to build on this relationship through engagement with the local community and create a genuinely warm and vibrant setting for later life care.”
Christine Cooper, project director at LNT Care Developments, added: “We are delighted to be building another fantastic facility for Oakdale Care Group and are very much looking forward to working with them to create a superb asset for the local community in Duston.
“Our sites are now selling at ever earlier stages. With the growing pressures on the local authority funded social care system growing, the need for care home environments which will attract the self-funding resident is becoming clearer.”
As well as a buyer of LNT Care Developments’ homes, Oakdale is one of LNT’s Turn Key Plus customers. The LNT service includes providing help with starting up a home, marketing, CQC registration and running recruitment fairs.
Earlier this month, LNT Group CEO boss Matt Lowe told Care Home Professional that he was seeing “huge demand” for its developments.
Construction of Timken Grange in Duston is due to complete in December 2017.
