Demand for New Care Homes Rising
03 Sep
The Office for National Statistics predicts a 36% growth in persons aged 85+ between 2015 and 2025, from 1.5 million to 2 million. This growth is expected to lead to a substantial increase in demand for care home services. At this time it’s vital that new care homes are being built as the demand for care home places is expected to rise steadily over the next 5-10 years. It is estimated that at least an extra 6,700 net new places will be needed each year to 2020 to satisfy demand in both the public and private care home sectors.

At Heatcare, we are currently working on 1040 beds and 170 apartments in total – which means we are currently helping to secure approximately 12% of the demand for new beds per annum. We are proud to be working alongside clients such as Lawrence Care, Care UK, Hamberley , Barchester, Hallmark, Berkeley Care, Caring Homes and and Maria Mallaband Care Group.
