Crawshawbooth nursing home bought by group

Crawshaw Hall Nursing Home and Medical Centre has been sold to Constantia Care Homes, part of the Constantia Healthcare Group, for an undisclosed sum.

The nursing home was launched by Harry and Eileen Karoo in 1987 to provide specialised care to people aged 50 years and over who suffer from a wide range of psychological illnesses.

Crawshaw Hall Medical Centre was opened in spring 1995 and was designed to provide nursing and residential care to young adults over the age of 18 years who have medical and/or physical disabilities.

The business is based within an 18th century mansion standing in over five acres of landscaped gardens set at the edge of 27 acres of forest land overlooking Limy Water.

Harry, Eileen and their son, Marc was brought to market through specialist business property adviser Christie & Co. Harry and Eileen plan to retire and Marc will continue to work at the home to ensure a smooth transfer.

Marc said: "We wish Constantia every success in the continuation of running Crawshaw Hall which has an amazing set of hard-working and loyal staff who shall continue to make Crawshaw Hall the excellent home for people in the local community that require dementia, general nursing and residential care.”

Anthony Massouras, managing director of Constantia Care Homes, said: "This is another fine nursing home introduced to us by Christie & Co. Crawshaw Hall is a well-managed and established nursing home with a good reputation for looking after elderly people requiring nursing and or special needs care. The home’s location is ideally suited to Constantia’s growth plans in the North West."
