Care home operator Adept Care Homes has received £4.65 million loan facilities from The Royal Bank of Scotland to allow a second brand new care home in the group to commence in Derby.
Kiwi House residential and dementia care home, located on Coleman Road, will allow for facilities including 78 spacious rooms – all with en-suite, a hairdressing salon, a cinema room and a pub. The new purpose built care home has begun and will complete in May 2016 creating 80 full and part time jobs – total employees across the group will rise to 340.

A refinance deal at the end of 2014 has taken RBS total loan facilities to £16.65 million. With the addition of Kiwi House, the group are projecting a turnover of £6.5 million.

Our long-term focus is to continue our success story across the Midlands, providing the highest standards of care.” Kenny Nelson, Healthcare Relationship Director at RBS, added, “Adept Care has a proven track record of providing first-class care in the Midlands and I have no doubt Kiwi House will be a fantastic new addition.
