Norfolk-based care organisation NorseCare has been chosen as the preferred bidder for the All Hallows Nursing Home in Bungay, North Suffolk.
The 50-bed home, which provides full-time care with nursing as well as respite care, is the last of five services to be transferred to new organisations following the closure of the All Hallows Healthcare Trust.
Karen Knight, NorseCare’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to welcome All Hallows to our family of care homes. We appreciate that it has been a worrying time for residents, their families, the staff and the local community, but this is really good news for everyone. The majority of the staff at All Hallows will remain the same, so residents will continue to receive care from people they know and are comfortable with.
“We are now looking forward to working closely with everyone and to bringing much-needed nursing care support to people in the Bungay area and wider local community. We will be arranging events so that people can come and meet us and find out more about us and the home. NorseCare has a well-deserved reputation for high quality care and we will ensure that this continues at All Hallows.”
Andrew Proctor, Leader of Norfolk County Council who own NorseCare, added: “Its great news that NorseCare will be providing care at All Hallows. There is a growing demand for quality nursing care placements across the country and NorseCare’s record for well-run care facilities in Norfolk has been excellent.”
