Mapleford Nursing Home in Accrington, Lancashire, has been sold through Christie & Co for an undisclosed sum.
Mapleford is a purpose-built nursing home facility spread out over two floors. The business is registered for 54 residents, though there are currently 43 single bedrooms and five en suites as the accommodation has been reconfigured to provide additional communal facilities.
The property is located in the Hyndburn borough of Lancashire, around four miles east of Blackburn.
Christie & Co were instructed by Kerry Bailey and Sarah Rayment of BDO LLP who acted as Joint Administrators of Pauls Care Services Ltd and Mapleford (Nursing Home) Ltd.
The business has been purchased by Krinvest Care Group. Speaking on behalf of the company, Joanne Robinson-Randall said, “Orbital Care Services is a division of Krinvest Care Group, and this is the fifth home to join our care home cluster. We also have two mental health hospitals, two Montessori nurseries and supported living, and a further two hospitals opening soon in other divisions of Krinvest.
'The plans for Mapleford are to focus on occupancy to bring our profit margin back and then we will transition the service over accordingly using our “One best way” practices which will see the services all running the same - and a revamp of Mapleford’s décor and gardens.
'We provide an excellent service of care and we are rated “Good” with CQC across the company.”
Jonathan Wickens, Director of Healthcare at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, commented, “We are delighted to have worked with BDO on this transaction and wish Orbital Care Services every success in their new venture.
'The care sector has, once again, dominated a lot of political discussion over the last four months, but we are now starting to see some shoots of recovery with increased activity from potential buyers.”
