Sanders Senior Living, a senior living provider and sister company to Runwood Homes, has acquired a 60-bedroom care home development in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.

The care home consists of good-quality, inclusive and sustainable design and is regenerating the former Sandicliffe Ford car sales pitch site.

Each room will have en-suite wet room provision. The care home features communal facilities including a dementia café, hair salon, communal lounges and landscaped outdoor spaces with seating areas to enhance residents’ wellbeing.

Tom Sanders, estates director of Sanders Senior Living, said: “We have worked with Knight Frank on previous Sanders Senior Living developments, including our Worcester site, The Belmont. As such, our already established and existing partnership with Knight Frank gives me the upmost confidence that we will see great success in our new development.”

Mandip Bhogal, associate in healthcare, Knight Frank, said: “The demand for best-in-class care properties is only set to increase as the population continues to age. In addition to providing a significant facility locally, this development is also providing much-needed stock of fit-for-purpose, future-proofed, purpose-built care facilities with sustainability and a focus on residents’ experience at the heart of the design and development process.”

Construction is due to start next week.
