National Care Group acquires Westward Care Homes in Norfolk

​Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has sold Westward Care Homes Limited, consisting of two sites, Westward Farm and Westward Barns near Attleborough in Norfolk. Established in 2009, Westward Care Homes provides specialised and individual residential support for adults ages 18 and over with a range of learning disabilities, autism, epilepsy and other additional complex needs.

Built to an extremely high standard and designed to provide personalised care from professionally trained staff and therapists, each resident has their own separate apartment to maximise the practice of daily living skills. Larger communal areas and outdoor gardens allow for a community atmosphere, allowing residents to socialise and form friendships between other residents and support staff.

Our clients decided to sell Westward Care Homes Limited in order to focus on their care business within the elderly sector and elderly care village developments.

The business has been acquired by the National Care Group, who have added this exceptional service to their existing operation within Norfolk , as well as their countrywide provision.

David Rowe-Bewick, Finance Director of National Care Group comments on the sale; “We would like to thank Robert Mellamphy in particular for the fantastic service he provided to us in facilitating our purchase of Westward Care Homes. His excellent client relations skills and ability to successfully negotiate between ourselves and the vendor was paramount to initially securing the deal and also seeing through the process of sale efficiently and effectively. He was a key figure throughout and we look forward to working closely with him again on many more future acquisitions.”

Robert Mellamphy, Director at Christie & Co’s Ipswich office who handled the sale comments; “Westward Care Homes is a high quality specialist service which has established a very strong reputation within the sector. We have known the vendors for many years and seen this business grow substantially. With our local and national contacts we were able to run a discreet targeted marketing campaign, approaching selected key buyers. As a result, a sale was achieved, which completed on Friday, December 8th.”
