According to Deloitte, overall life expectancy is projected to increase significantly by 2023 with 22% of Western Europe’s population being over 65 years old.
Spending on the global geriatric care market will also likely exceed $1.4 trillion by 2023. Government reports also state that the number of care home beds need to double over the next 25 years to keep up with demand. All of these statistics combined with the UK’s ageing population offers a safe and reliable investment in times of economic uncertainty.
Families of patients in care homes now hold a greater emphasis on luxury, personalised services for their loved ones to ensure that their stay is comfortable. The health care and care home industry also requires added investment to drive innovation for MedTech to keep up with the vast number of patients. This has created a highly lucrative market for investors looking to expand their portfolio with care homes for sale.
Why is Care Home Investment Important?
There are two main reasons why investing in care homes is incredibly important and rewarding:
Investing in care homes which are for sale can help alleviate stress on the NHS.
By helping create more beds in care homes, this means less elderly people will have to receive care in their own homes. According to the Nuffield Trust, frailer people in domiciliary care are more likely to experience multiple admissions to A&E, leading to increased costs to the NHS.
Private care home investment allows care homes to be built quickly and efficiently.
In times of austerity and constrained public finances, when the private sector invests in care homes, it ensures our expanding elderly population are able to receive high-quality care in a comfortable setting, as quickly as possible
Here at Sterling Woodrow, our area of expertise lies within care home investment opportunities. The care home property market is one of the most rewarding investment types currently available. They represent a highly manageable asset class which can be a successful investment strategy for first-time investors looking to establish their portfolio, or experienced investors looking to diversify.

Why Buy a Care Home?
Whilst many elderly people choose to live in their own homes and receive domiciliary care, research by the Nuffield Trust shows that they are more likely to experience multiple admissions to A&E. According to the British Property Federation, the NHS spends nearly £34m a month looking after patients who no longer need to be in hospital whilst Age UK found that half of all older people’s requests for care were unsuccessful in 2019.
Care home investment is extremely profitable and can generate high yield returns, but it also helps more older people receive the care that they need as quickly as possible.
According to Deloitte, the next steps required to drive innovation in health care delivery involve collaboration and investment from other industry players and individuals for maximum impact. When investors buy a care home, they are helping solve the challenge of unequal access, capacity, capability and affordability (ACCA) which patients require. Retirement home investment also helps to provide health care, such as inpatient services, beyond hospital walls. Investment in care homes also speeds up innovation for virtual health care by leveraging digital technologies.
This places significant demand on the property market to supply high-quality care homes for sale at all levels. Due to the level of demand for care home beds, it continues to be seen as a defensive asset due to its stable income profile.
This is where our senior property investment managers can help you discover the most profitable locations to invest in care homes. Our aim is to provide you with the best return on investment and do the hard work for you.
What some of our clients have to say…
I’m originally from Leeds but now live in Australia working as a university lecturer. It’s always been our aim to ultimately move back to the UK so I’ve taken an interest in the UK property for many years. I’m also very aware of the lack of accommodation for students close to major universities. A friend recently put me in touch with Sterling Woodrow and it was instantly apparent that these guys knew their market so my wife and I finally decided to invest.
First time investing into a fully managed investment. I made an enquiry online boasting 10% returns per annum. Within a few days I received a call from one of the portfolio managers Ben, who was extremely helpful and wanted to understand more about my goals and what I wanted to achieve than actually trying to sell the product which was a breath of fresh air. I received all the info and had lots of questions regarding the Hotel Investment, all of which he answered simply and easy to understand.
Whether you live overseas or in the UK if you want to invest in property it’s important to find an agent that will go the extra mile for you and that’s exactly what Sterling Woodrow did for me. Although I knew a lot already it was still good to have those guys available when I needed them and it didn’t cost me anything.
