About Us

 
 
 
KR Health & Social Care Group was established in 2004 with our first care home in Atherton. We have organically grown through providing a high quality needed service. We continue to strive to exceed the expectations of our clients.

Over the years, multiple projects have been completed predominantly in the North West of England, varying from 5 successfully running care homes and 3 active nurseries, with our new rehabilitation unit recently having opened in early 2016.
We understand that the process of choosing a care home can be a difficult decision, therefore we hope you find this website easy to use. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions and our expert team will be happy to offer you general advice about the process of admission to a new care home facility.
