South coast nursing homes seek buyer 22 April 2014

Buyers are being sought for three Dorset-based nursing homes which entered administration earlier this month.

Greenbushes Nursing Home and Avenue Nursing Home in Dorchester, and Windsor Court Nursing Home in Bournemouth, saw parent companies Dorchester Care LLP and its designated member Lyndale Healthcare enter administration.

Bob Maxwell and Julie Palmer of Begbies Traynor (Central) LLP were appointed as joint administrators for Dorchester Care LLP and its designated member Lyndale Healthcare on 10 April.

Upon appointment, administrators employed care home operator Goldcare Future Management Ltd to manage Avenue House and Windsor Court on their behalf.

Both will continue to run as normal while the businesses are marketed.

Maxwell said: “Our key concern is ensuring that the care homes continue to operate efficiently with the minimum of disruption to residents.

“For this reason, we have appointed a specialist healthcare management company whom we know well, and which has vast experience of managing care homes in administration, to oversee the smooth running of Avenue House and Windsor Court.

“We, together with Goldcare, are working closely with the relevant authorities to maintain stability and ensure the smooth-running of the care homes while buyers are sought for the businesses as a going concern.

“A buyer is also being sought for the Greenbushes property which previously operated as a nursing home.”

Avenue House employs 36 staff, where no redundancies have been made. Windsor Court employs 38 staff and four redundancies were made prior to Lyndale Healthcare being placed in administration. Greenbushes is closed and employs no staff.
