Claremont Care Limited, which owns and operates six care and nursing homes across the Midlands, has gone into administration.
AlixPartners Services UK, which has been appointed as administrator, says it is working with authorities to keep the homes open while alternative accommodation is arranged for residents or a new buyer is found.
“The Joint Administrators will continue to operate the care homes as normal while a buyer is sought,” the administrator confirms. “Our focus is very much on securing a buyer for these high quality care homes and we welcome expressions of interest.”
“The joint administrators were appointed following the business experiencing cash flow difficulties and will be working closely with the Care Quality Commission and local authorities to ensure that care levels are maintained and residents’ interests protected,” the company adds.
Claremont Care Limited is registered to run six homes in the Midlands: The Old Vicarage in Wolverhampton; Elm House in Stoke-on-Trent; The New Barn in Market Drayton (pictured above); Elmhurst Nursing Home in Whitchurch; Beaumaris Court Care Home in Newport; and Standford House in Sambrook,
Newport town councillor Peter Scott told local newspaper Shropshire Star that the future would be uncertain for both care homes in the town but his team were working with nearby councils to ensure residents receive appropriate care. “We need to find out what help is available from Telford and Wrekin Council and I am sure that all borough councillors would step in and help where they can.”
