Anson Care Services to add capacity following £1m funding from Santander


Anson Care Services Ltd, a leading elderly and specialist care operator in Cornwall, is adding nine beds and new ancillary facilities to its St Mary’s Haven home in Penzance, after receiving a funding package worth over £1 million from Santander Corporate & Commercial (SCC).

Anson Care Services is a group of five care homes in Cornwall and a leading provider of dementia care. Two residences are based in Redruth, two in Penzance and one in Portreath, with 150 beds available in total. Anson Care was founded by husband and wife team John Anson, a retired accountant, and Mary Anson, a qualified nurse. Their son and daughter-in-law are also involved in the business and John and Mary plan to hand the family business over to them in the future.

The funding from Santander will enable Anson Care Services to add nine beds to the St Mary’s Haven home in Penzance to cater for additional demand. The business is also adding new ancillary facilities to St Mary’s, including a larger conservatory, new lift shaft and staff training facility. Anson Care has seen robust growth in recent years due to a steady demand for its high quality, personalised care for its elderly residents.

Mary Anson, Managing Director, Anson Care Services Ltd, said: “Our business has grown significantly over recent years, making us one of the most respected and trusted care home providers in West Cornwall. The additional beds will allow us to meet the growing demand for specialist dementia and elderly care and the ancillary facilities will enable us to provide an even better service for our residents and a better place to work for our staff at St Mary’s. Santander’s specialist healthcare team worked closely with us on our growth plans and their support has been invaluable.”

Jon Pike, Relationship Director, Santander Corporate & Commercial, said: “John and Mary Anson have grown their business substantially over the years and now offer leading care accommodation and services in Cornwall. The funding provided will allow them to expand their current offering and we look forward to working with them closely in the future.”
