Signature Celebrate 10th Anniversary
On January 27th, Signature Senior Lifestyle celebrates its 10th anniversary as a developer and operator of market leading, high quality, private pay, care and nursing homes. The company was established in 2006 as a joint venture with Cabot Square Capital to create a superior alternative to the existing offering of residential and nursing care homes in the UK. During this time, the company has grown from a modest portfolio of 3 homes, to organically building and opening a further 6 high spec homes, in and around the M25 corridor, with a further 7 in the pipeline.
Signature prides itself in creating individual, luxurious environments, which challenge the perception of traditional care and nursing homes and aims to increase their portfolio by 3-4 a year. Aidan Roche, MD said, “Our vision is not to be the biggest, but to be the best. Our company ethos revolves around building exceptional teams who are dedicated and provide the best care in the highest standard of accommodation found anywhere in the UK and this has been evidenced by the amount of national awards and nominations we have received in 2015. This coupled with 93% of our residents feeling they could recommend us to friends and relatives, is an outstanding achievement.” In 2015 alone, Signature were finalists in 22 categories in The Great British Care Awards, winning four, finalists and winners in the Surrey Care Awards and finalists and winners of the Dementia Care Awards to name but a few.
To summarise, Chairman, Tom Newell commented, “In 2015 an opportunity arose for the Management team to acquire the Company and we are all exceptionally proud of the legacy we are creating. We all feel passionate that our residents and our staff are at the heart of our business and I look forward to the next 10 years of growth together.”
