Care home provider to create 160 jobs with two new East Yorkshire care homes
Yorkare Homes, the East Yorkshire care home provider, is to open two new care homes after securing an eight-figure funding package from HSBC.
Established in Brough in 1988, Yorkare previously owned and managed a group of care homes before deciding to sell its portfolio and focus on the development of new build homes.
The business currently owns and operates five care homes across East Yorkshire, providing residential and dementia care to over 350 residents.
In order to meet growing demand for its services, Yorkare Homes has now commissioned the construction of two new care homes, each in Hessle and Hornsea.
The new care homes will accommodate up to 64 residents each and feature ‘street scene’ facilities that include a house bar/café, shops, salons and a cinema.
Preparatory works are already underway at Tranby Park Nursing Home in Hessle and it is expected to open its doors to residents in May 2019.
Yorkare expects work to start on the Mere View Nursing Home, Hornsea, in October this year.
The business expects to create up to 160 new jobs as a result of the two care homes.
Laurence Garton, development director at Yorkare, said: “It is no secret that the demand for care homes is growing rapidly across the UK. However, with this increasing demand is also a higher expectation on the quality of the care beds available.
“With the financial backing of HSBC, we are now positioning Yorkare to meet this demand with these two extra developments in our local area and we are already discussing the potential of delivering new developments in the near future.”
Scott Christian, HSBC’s relationship director for North Yorkshire and Humber, commented: “Yorkare is a fine example of a dynamic Humberside business that is delivering a fantastic service to its residents, as well as creating scores of local jobs.
“It is a pleasure to support Yorkare as it undergoes rapid expansion and we look forward to seeing the business welcome residents to its new homes.”
