The addition of The Old Vicarage, which is rated as “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission, takes the Colchester company’s portfolio of residential and nursing homes across the South and East of England to 37.

The Old Vicarage, which provides care and support for up to 41 elderly residents, was previously in private family ownership.

Gordon Cochrane, chief executive at Healthcare Homes, said: “The Old Vicarage is a fantastic home that has been built with devotion and professional dedication since 1984.

“We are delighted to complete the purchase of the home, which has an excellent reputation across the Dorset region as well as recognition from the CQC in the form of its outstanding rating plus an impressive 30 industry awards to its name.”

Helen Gidlow, chief operating officer at Healthcare Homes, added: “We very much look forward to working with the team at The Old Vicarage, who will continue to deliver the very best consistent care to the home’s residents.”
