Duchess Gardens is an 85-bedroom care home facility in the affluent town of Bingley, West Yorkshire. Duchess Gardens is completed and fully operational, meaning that there is no development risk and income can be received immediately.
Located close to the major towns and cities of Harrogate, Skipton and Leeds, the care home is well-placed to host the elderly and allow for their families to visit them easily. It lies next to some of England’s finest countryside, and enjoys a prestigious horticultural heritage. Duchess Gardens accommodates people who need 24-hour personal support and would find it difficult to cope in their own home without assistance. On site features include a hairdresser’s, day centre, cinema room and religious service.
As an experienced care home operator will be managing the day to day running of the care home facility, this is a completely hands-off investment.
UK’s Growing Requirement For Care Homes
The UK’s population is ageing, and it is predicted that by 2050 1 in 4 UK residents will be aged 65 and over – a 56.3% increase from 2012. The susceptibility to diseases such as Alzheimer’s increases as the population ages, and will put an enormous amount of stress on the UK’s healthcare infrastructure. Due to the government’s failure to provide adequate healthcare for population, it is now increasingly reliant on the private sector to prop up the NHS. Government funding cuts mean that the gap between supply and demand will never be plugged by the NHS alone, which is why there has been a rise in the number of independently developed and run care homes.
Yorkshire in particular has been identified as a county in dire need of new care home facilities. Local councils in Yorkshire have recently closed or are planning to close numerous care homes, due to many being ‘outdated’ and unsuitable for the purpose which they are intended.
Thus, the need for quality purpose built care homes in Yorkshire is more pressing than ever. Through investing in care home units, you are not only able to achieve high yields for yourself, but you are providing the community with something they so desperately need.
