The Healthcare Homes Group (HHG) was established as a privately focused residential care provider in the summer of 2005. It has become a trusted provider, working with private individuals, local authorities and NHS partners to deliver nursing and residential (social) care, including end of life care and nursing care for higher dependency residents. HHG’s portfolio (which now numbers 37 homes with more than 1950 beds) has grown steadily over the last decade both by acquisition and organic growth.
