Porthaven builds, owns and operates premium quality care homes for the frail elderly and those living with dementia, focusing on the self-pay market. Commitment to quality of care has always been at the forefront of what Porthaven does, along with a clear focus on strong governance processes and the recruitment and retention of the very best staff. The management team is led by John Storey, who founded the business in 2006.

our partnership

Phoenix invested in Porthaven in October 2011 when founder and CEO John Storey had opened three care homes. There was a significant opportunity to grow the company by acquiring land and building additional top quality care homes, as well as enhancing the provision of expert care by continuing to hire and train highly motivated staff. During Phoenix’s investment period, we worked with John and his team to increase the number of homes fivefold from three to fifteen, and to transform the sales and marketing capability of the business. Phoenix sold Porthaven in November 2017.

"Phoenix's style is refreshing. They see opportunities rather than issues, then work with us to overcome challenges" 

John Storey, CEO of Porthaven
