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.
Fundraising Match for England U15’s
01 May
Joshua Paling‘s been at it again – after bringing back a collective Bronze medal last year at Inniscarra Lake in Ireland, he’s back raising money for the England U15’s team going to Italy for the 11th World Coarse Angling Championships for Youth (U25’s) in August this year.
 
Unfortunately, the team gets no external funding, and therefore, this year’s trip is going to be extremely costly! You’re looking at travel, accommodation, food and drinks for all the young anglers, their parents and their coaches, which soon far exceeds any parental budgets as I’m sure you can imagine.
 
Along with Woodhouse Angling centre and the help of his Dad, Mark Paling, and fellow friends in the industry, Josh helped bring everyone together for an awesome fishing match on Sunday, raising a whopping £1444.54 – an amazing total, which the team will collectively decide how to spend where it’s most needed.
 
Sarah (Media Relations) went along to take some photos and to provide some general support – mainly in the form of folding up one million raffle tickets, helping with the weigh-in and eating delicious cakes made by Josh’s Mum, Zoe.
 
We’re so proud to have been involved and it’s a pleasure to support Josh on another Team England adventure – the dedication he has for his sport is awesome to see in person (he wouldn’t even look away from the float for a quick photo) and he’s definitely one to watch.

Pre-Fabrication Workshop Investment Underway
21 Feb

At Heatcare, we’ve recently invested in a new mezzanine floor which is currently being built within our current pre-fabrication workshop. We believe that pre-fabrication increases productivity, increases quality assurance, reduces waste, reduces commissioning times on-site, and all-in-all pre-fabrication is a much more cost-effective solution in the current building services climate. The new mezzanine floor will create essential storage space for completed pre-fabricated boards, which in turn gives us a larger spacial area for production. This means we can be working on several projects at a time within the workshop space, increasing productivity. The mezzanine floor is set to be completed in the next couple of weeks and looks to be a great investment for the future.
