Group director, Michael Ladhar said: “While many building projects have stalled due to the recession, we have continued to invest – creating homes and care centres to the highest possible standards, making the environment as comfortable as we can for our residents and guests.”

Wendy Conn, Crown Care’s managing director of healthcare, said: “The facilities at Osborne House will be fantastic. It will have a feel of home-from home and has been designed to give the people who to live here or stay with us, the comfort and care they deserve.”

An open weekend will be held at Osborne House on Union Lane, Selby for families of potential residents on October 14 and 15, with the first residents expected to move in for Christmas.

Crown Care started as Ladhar Care homes in 1989. It is part of the Ladhar Group, which also operates three homes in Northumberland for adults with learning disabilities under the brand of Flexible Support Options.
