Care Home developers set to create 300 jobs

NorthStar has been set up by Ian Homes and Danny Sharpe, who have established a strong reputation within the care home industry for their innovative approach to developing and project managing care homes.

The pair have already secured contracts with a number of care providers, and are now looking to expand their reach further across the UK. One of their most recent developments, a care home in Newmaket, Kentford Manor has also been chosen as one of three finalists in the Best Larger Home for the Elderly Care category at this year’s national Pinders Healthcare Design Awards.

Commenting on the developments, Ian Homes said: “The NorthStar supply chain of architects, lawyers and other construction professionals have worked hand in hand for many years and offer a comprehensive service comprising of the best consultants in the healthcare sector, all under NorthStar’s lead.

“This is a particularly exciting time for us at NorthStar as we branch out independently.

“To be shortlisted for such a prestigious award as we start our journey is a welcome boost to morale and serves to strengthen our already impressive portfolio of award winning care homes which we have developed.”

The firm have also nominated Alzheimers Research UK  as their designated charity, and recently presented them with a cheque at Kentford Manor. Jodie Vaughn, community fundraising officer with the charity was on hand to recieve the money.

She said: “Support from companies like NorthStar plays a key part in helping Alzheimer’s Research UK progress its pioneering dementia research.

“This donation of £500 will pay for hours of research and vital equipment for our scientists, bringing us closer to finding ways to diagnose, prevent, treat and cure dementia.”

NorthStar offer an integrated service of planning care home developments from finding sites to
handing over a fully-furnished and equipped, CQC-compliant building to the care home operator.

Ian added: “As our aging population continues to grow, it is increasingly important to deliver well-
designed residential care with specialist services.

“With a combined 50 of years in the industry under our belts we develop care homes which enable residents to flourish and which are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, particularly for those suffering from dementia.”
