A leading orthodontist is getting his teeth into the care home sector with help from Yorkshire Bank.
Highpoint Care Ltd, established by Liverpool orthodontist Hemant Patel, has acquired a new purpose-built home after receiving funding from Yorkshire Bank to assist with the £4.5 million price.
Specialising in elderly and dementia care, Colliers Croft home, located in Haydock, in the St. Helens area of Merseyside, is a state-of-the-art residential facility providing en-suite accommodation for 60 residents.
The new home has created 35 jobs. Almost half the bedrooms, each of which is equipped with a flat screen television, mini-fridge and Wi-Fi coverage, were reserved prior to the opening.
Colliers Croft Care Home is owned and operated by Highpoint Care, a new care provider.
Hemant Patel, managing director of Highpoint Care, said the company plans to establish a chain of up to five residential homes within the next five years.
He said: “With support from Yorkshire Bank, Highpoint Care is changing the face of the care home sector. Colliers Croft sets new standards for the industry not just locally, but also nationally.
“We chose Yorkshire Bank as our funding partner as its in-depth knowledge of the care home sector is crucial to our ambitions of opening a number of quality facilities over the coming years.”
Derek Breingan, Yorkshire Bank’s head of healthcare, said: “With its contemporary design, luxurious surroundings and excellent facilities, Colliers Croft will be a significant boost to care home provision in the St. Helens area.”
