Today (23 December 2021), Holmes Care Group, a national residential and dementia care provider, has announced the acquisition of 12 new care homes from Kingdom Homes, a care provider based in Fife, Scotland.
The acquisition, part of Holmes Care’s plans to increase its portfolio and drive recovery from the pandemic, will see the care provider more than double its portfolio – with the 12 Fife-based homes joining a combined family of 22 Scottish care homes, and one England-based home.
There will be no disruption to the care Kingdom Homes residents receive – ensuring residents continue to receive the highest quality care, companionship, and support, from a care team they know and trust.
Following the acquisition, the Holmes Care Group now employs almost 1650 staff and supports approximately 1150 beds.
Sharifa Lakhani, CEO at Holmes Care Group said: “We are delighted that Kingdom Homes have joined the Holmes Care Group family. Kingdom Homes and Holmes Care Group share a commitment to delivering the best standards of care possible, making them a perfect fit for us. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming their wonderful staff to our team. Combined, we will continue to make a real difference to the lives of our residents, their loved ones and the communities we serve.”
Alex Wilson, Managing Director at Holmes Care Group said: “We are very excited to welcome these excellent homes, their residents and committed colleagues as we continue our growth as a business. We look forward to learning and sharing best practice as we move forward and continuing a shared track record of impressive care in the community.”
