Powys County Council is holding talks with Bupa after threatening legal action over its sell-off of 12 homes to HC-One.
The row erupted when it emerged that the homes were among the sale of 122 Bupa services to HC-one (see Council threatens legal action over Bupa sell-off).
Cllr Stephen Hayes, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care commented: “We are still in discussion with Bupa about the contractual and operational arrangements of our 12 residential care homes here in Powys.
“No further decisions have yet been made, and discussions will continue between Powys County Council and Bupa’s executive team over the coming weeks.
“Our priority is to ensure that all residents continue to receive high quality care and support, and we will notify residents, families and carers when further information is available.”
Bupa had a 16-year contract to run the 12 homes, which include Llys Hafren in Welshpool and Plas Cae Crwn in Newtown.
A Bupa spokesperson said: “We always make it our priority to let our residents, employees and regulators know first when we have an announcement. We have been in contact with Powys County Council and we will continue these discussions.
“We have a shared priority to ensure that all residents continue to receive high quality care and support, and we will update residents, families and carers when further information is available.”
