Nursing Home Property Investments
With an ageing population that is rapidly growing in size, the demand for specialised care homes and nursing homes is at an all-time high.
Over the next 20 years, the number of UK residents aged 85 or over is set to rise at its fastest ever rate, with the UK government estimating that an additional 1.7 million will require care and support by 2035.
As the number of those in need of care continues to increase, the UK’s care home sector is at risk of major bed shortages in several UK regions in the next 20 years.
There are now more than 400,000 residents living in residential care - but the sector is losing 4,000 beds each year.

With local authorities channelling their budgets into the provision of care, the sector has become heavily dependent on the supply of newly built private care homes to meet the rising demand.
Generating a total yearly income of £12.4 billion, the private sector accounts for 86% of the total revenue in the UK’s care homes, whilst also housing 78% of all elderly care beds.
With the Care Quality Commission revealing that the number of UK care homes has fallen from 18,068 in 2010 to 16,614 in 2016 – with a significant majority closing in the public sector – new care homes in the UK are a necessity.
