Hartford Care has acquired two newly built state-of-the-art residential care homes in Alton and Southampton in Hampshire.
The new home in Alton will be the second of Hartford’s care homes in the town; it will offer expert residential, dementia and respite care across 67 bedrooms, and will be positioned alongside a new landscaped public open space.
The newly built care home in Southampton – the third care home for Hartford in the area – will offer residential, dementia and respite care across 70 bedrooms set within landscaped grounds near West End Village.
The two homes are being developed by Highwood, an expert in delivering inspired and sustainable care homes, in collaboration with Octopus Investments’ specialist healthcare funding division.
Both homes will have industry-leading sustainability credentials and will be rated BREEAM Excellent, with significant renewable energy elements including solar panels, heat pumps and battery storage systems.
Kevin Shaw, Chief Executive of Hartford Care, comments: “We’re extremely pleased to add these new state-of-the-art care homes in Alton and Southampton to our portfolio. It now brings us to 20 homes with over 1,100 bedrooms and we are well on our way to achieving our goal to double in size within three years and provide our specialist care and ‘home from home’ environment to as many people as possible.”
Phil Prosser, Development Director of Highwood, says: “We’re delighted to have agreed terms on these state-of-the-art schemes with Hartford Care. It’s exciting to reignite a relationship that stretches back over a decade and has led to a number of care home project successes – we’re very much looking forward to working together again.”
