Essex-based Healthcare Homes has completed the purchase of another property, The Old Vicarage residential care home at Leigh, near Sherbourne in Dorset.

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.”
