About us
We are excited to announce the launch of a brand new Luxury Care Home and Senior Village Brand, Baycroft, which will be opening its first service in the Summer of 2019. The brand, which is a part of One Housing, has been launched with the aim of developing homes and villages that are attuned to the individual needs of each resident, and a place where they are proud to call home. This flagship service will be a 75 bedded luxury home offering the highest levels of support to its residents through personalised Nursing and Dementia care. This is a unique opportunity that will allow you to take the lead and become involved in the early stages of this exciting new brand.
