A care home group has acquired two care homes in Brentwood as they continue their mission to provide outstanding care and support to people in Essex.
Ardtully Retirement Residence and Old Shenfield Place were taken over by Premium Care Group in November 2022, and the new home owners will be making a significant investment to transform them into warm, welcoming and inclusive environments.
Ardtully is a grade II-listed care home, which occupies an extended Georgian residence, situated in the conservation area of Ingatestone. Old Shenfield Place is a renovated seventeenth century building set within Shenfield, close to local amenities. Combined, the homes offer 57 beds.
The changes will also see the management of the home transformed, with improvements being made to staff training and development and personalised care and activity programmes.
Robert Adams, managing director at Premium Care Group, said:
“We are delighted to be the new owners of the beautiful Ardtully and Old Shenfield Place.
“Our vision is to provide extraordinary care, so we will continue to invest in the buildings and facilities at Ardtully and Old Shenfield, as well as continually improve training, development and recruitment.
“As a local care home owner, I look forward to increasing our strong links with the local community.”
Daughters Sally Russell and Jenny Downs, have been visiting their mum Lillian Downs at Old Shenfield Place since 2017 and have been really impressed with the improvements.
Sally said: “We are so impressed with the improvements and renovations at Old Shenfield Place. Everywhere looks clean and fresh. The lounge and craft room are so comfortable and a great place for residents to enjoy their day.
“The new management has put many positive changes into the place for both residents and staff.
“The atmosphere is vibrant and the staff work hard and are extremely caring. We are reassured that mum is happy, safe and well cared for at Old Shenfield Place.”
