Opportunity in the UK care industry
As a country, the UK is ageing; care for the older population is already generating an income of £14.5 Billion for the UK economy every year (AMA Research Ltd), the majority of which is funded by the government.
This figure is due to increase as the UK population ages. Estimates from the Office for National Statistics (www.ons.gov.uk) suggest that 1 in 4 people will be aged 65+ by 2050, representing a 56.3% increase from 2012. A total of 8 million people will be aged 80+ by the same year.
In order to begin to meet the demand, the UK government has committed to transferring £3.8
billion from the NHS (National Health Service) for joint NHS and local council decisions about the funding of health and care services from the outset of 2015. Key decisions are now being made at local levels to ‘deliver better outcomes and greater efficiencies through more integrated services for older and disabled people’ (Age UK).
The social care funding and supply within the UK is currently under intense pressures and it is into this new market that these care home developers offer its new and innovative service.
With supply dwindling and owners and operators under increasing pressures, relying on the old models of supply and finance is no longer a valid option.
Your purchase helps to maintain the supply of care while providing the opportunity for people who require care to benefit from exceptional facilities and excellent service.
Washington and the North East
The care facility sits within a residential area in the heart of Washington Village.
Washington is a historic town within the North East of England. Not only does the area boast
strong working class traditions but to relations of George Washington himself, the 1st president of the United States of America.
Washington Old Hall, a 17th Century mansion was the home of the town’s namesake’s direct
ancestors for 5 generations and is now a National Trust site encompassing museums and gardens.
The Washington riverside on the southern edge of the new town is an aesthetically appealing spot despite its history as a thriving centre of industrial activity. Fatfield is noted for its riverside pubs and restaurants overlooking the attractive Fatfield Bridge (or Penshaw Bridge), an iron bridge of 1890.
And the famous Penshaw monument is just a stone’s throw away and offers stunning views
from the 70-foot high folly. Washington was designated a new town in 1964 and currently has a population of 67,085 (2011 census). There is a major bus station situated at The Galleries, and another at Concord in the north of Washington, with local services as well as connections to Newcastle Upon Tyne, Sunderland, and many other towns and cities in the region.
Major roads run through Washington: the A182, A1231 and A195 all connect to the A1(M),
providing transport links northbound to Edinburgh and southbound terminating in London.
Although the overall population of the North East of England is not the highest, the percentage of the population aged 65 and over is projected to be one of the fastest growing amongst the regions (Office for National Statistics 2013).
The region’s population was 2.6 million in mid-2011. From 2001 to 2011, the overall population of the North East grew by 2.2% Interim projections based on the mid-2011
population estimates show that by 2021 the population in the North East could reach 2.7
million, a projected increase of 4.9%, In mid-2011, 17.4% of the population were aged
65 and over, which exceeds the national average of 16.4%.
The mainly rural and coastal northern parts of the region have a higher proportion of people aged 65 and over compared with the south.
The proportion of the population aged 65 and over is projected to increase to 20.4% in 2021 for this region compared with 18.7% for England.
The number of people living with a form of dementia in the UK is currently just under 800,000 projected to rise to 2 million across the next 15 years.
