Innovation Care first formed on the 07/04/1997 under the rather different name of The Silver Rooms (Stroud) Limited. There have been various business interests, however the company moved to its current status of running care homes when Prospect House in Cinderford was purchased in February of 2005. We expanded with the acquisition of Moor Court in October 2007. Innovation Care is a family run business with the sole director being John Kidd.
Should another opportunity to purchase a quality property in close proximity to Prospect House or Moor Court present itself, as a company we will look at the opportunity, We also continuously monitor opportunities outside of the core areas.
