The funding package ensures Avondale Care Scotland has access to capital to provide premium facilities to residents - and supports the acquisition of residential care home, Glenbervie, also in Falkirk which is already under its operation.

It already runs Carrondale Care Home in the town.

The family business was established in 1987 by Allan Hendry, and it is now operated by his sons Graeme and Adrian Hendry.

Adrian Hendry, director, said: “We want to be able to provide the best possible care to our residents and this funding helps us to do so.”
