Healthcare Homes has completed the purchase of The Old Vicarage residential care home in Leigh, Dorset.
The Outstanding home takes the group’s portfolio of residential and nursing homes in the South and East of England to 37.
Gordon Cochrane, Chief Executive Officer of Healthcare Homes Group, said: “The Old Vicarage is a fantastic home that has been built with devotion and professional dedication since 1984. We are delighted to complete the purchase of the home, which has an excellent reputation across the Dorset region as well as recognition from the CQC in the form of its Outstanding rating plus an impressive 30 industry awards to its name.”
Helen Gidlow, Chief Operating Officer of Healthcare Homes, added: “We very much look forward to working with the team at The Old Vicarage, who will continue to deliver the very best consistent care to the home’s residents. We would also like to pass on our very best wishes to Josie and Carey for their future endeavours.”
The group has acquired the home from Josie Aggett and Carey Faulkener; two sisters who took over the running of the home in 2016 following the loss of their parents, Annie and Ian Sinnott; both of whom had originally opened The Old Vicarage in 1984 as a residential home.
