Nexus Care Group Announces Significant Investment in the Old Vicarage Care Home, Askam-in-Furness Cumbria


Nexus Care Group, a leading provider of care services, is proud to announce a significant investment of £1.6 million in the Old Vicarage Care Home located in Askam-in Furness, Cumbria. This commitment is geared towards enhancing the facility's capacity and creating a more supportive environment for individuals with dementia.

The investment will see the extension of the Old Vicarage Care Home to include an additional eleven beds. This not only increases the home’s capacity but also ensures that families no longer face the distressing prospect of placing their loved ones in a care home 100 miles away, a challenge currently faced by many in the region.


Furthermore, the upgrade will introduce a more spacious day area and dining section. Nexus Care Group recognises the importance of an environment tailored to the unique needs of those with dementia. With this in mind, the renovation will incorporate state-of-the-art wayfinding and decoration principles from Sterling University, ensuring that residents feel at home and can navigate the space with ease and confidence.

“This expansion not only addresses the immediate need for more bed spaces in the region, but it also serves as a testament to our commitment to providing top-tier care for those with dementia,” explains a Director at Nexus Care Group. “By creating a space where residents feel safe, comfortable, and understood, we are further cementing our position as leaders in the care sector.”

In addition to benefiting residents and their families, this project will have a positive impact on the local community. The expansion is anticipated to generate valuable employment opportunities, reinforcing Nexus Care Group’s dedication to supporting local economies.
