Burscough Manor Care Home

A deal by Warrington-based Sandstone Care Group, for an undisclosed sum, has seen the addition of an eighth care home to its portfolio.

The care home operator has taken operational ownership of Burscough Manor Care Home in Burscough, Lancashire.

The 80-bed home offers luxury residential and specialist/complex nursing care tailored to each individual and using the latest nursing technology.

The home joins seven other homes in the Sandstone Care Group in Lancashire, Merseyside, Powys in Wales and Shropshire.

James Parkin, a director and co-founder of Sandstone Care Group, which is based in Birchwood Park, said: “Burscough Manor is a lovely new-build property with some great facilities and we have a brilliant team of people in place to offer the highest standards of care to our residents.

“Our growing portfolio of care homes provide a range of residential, nursing and dementia care services within modern, vibrant communities.

“As ever, our focus is on providing the best person-centred care for our residents in a loving and welcoming environment.”

The home’s registered manager, Samantha Smith, said: “We’re looking forward to meeting all the residents and their families over the coming weeks and to becoming a key part of the local community.”

As part of the investment in the care home, a number of new jobs are due to be created including nurses, care assistants and care practitioners.
