“We are very excited to announce this new care home that features excellent location in the town center of Esbjerg. There is an increasing need for care homes in Denmark, and private investment can help meet the demand for modern and high-quality care homes”, explains Kasper Wehner, Investment Director, Northern Horizon Denmark.

“The new care home in Esbjerg is a showcase example of the investments that we pursue across the Nordics for the Aged Care Fund. Sustainability is at the core of our investment strategy, and besides from being modern and well-located, the Esbjerg care home also applies to the highest sustainability standards,” comments Riikka Moreau, Fund Manager in charge of Aged Care for Northern Horizon.

KPC has received building permit and the construction is expected to be completed in November of 2022.
