About Us

Ventry Residential Cares founders William and Margaret Heneghan have been providing quality residential care since 1985 and in 2003 established the provider, Ventry Residential Care.

The founders started providing quality care for the elderly across England further to the experiences of Margaret’s lifetime of work as a state registered nurse primarily in community based care.

Margaret’s work with the elderly in the community and in the care homes of the time lead her to believe that with the right environment, stimulation, personalised care and the promotion of community spirit our older people can experience a longer, happier, healthier life.

Both founders were actively involved in not just caring for but caring about their residents and enjoyed helping to support the life’s of others over many years. As time progressed, and having from time to time observed the level care provided elsewhere they took the decision to take the next step and bring their knowledge, experience and philosophy to the benefit of a wider audience.

They embarked on a growth strategy and grew the group to six care homes over five years. They have always worked in a way that does not place undue financial pressures on their business model to unsure that our resident’s homes are never put at risk. On each occasion they identified existing care homes that provided an opportunity to benefit from their philosophy. They then undertook an extensive refurbishment and redecoration programme of works to improve the environment of the homes. While extensive and modern management systems where put in place to support the provision of quality care as well as to support the compliance of the homes with it’s regulators. They also worked to create a truly supportive, knowledgeable and skilled care team.

Both founders remain actively involved in the management of the company. Ventry Residential Care is managed by an experienced team of Senior Managers and Care Home Managers who work together on a daily basis to insure our Service Users are supported to lead the life of their choosing in warm comfortable surroundings.
