On behalf of our vendors Mr and Mrs Dunn, DC Care is delighted to announce the recent successful sale of Grove Hill, an attractive and highly regarded residential care home located in the popular North Wiltshire market town Highworth, near Swindon.
The home provides high quality residential care for up to 27 residents within the categories of old age and dementia care, operating at an effective registration of 20 on account of there being 20 actual bedrooms. Mr James Dunn purchased the business in the late 1980’s and added a first phase extension, planning permission for a second phase extension was being granted and is still valid to this day.
Mr Dunn and his wife both operated the business with a hands-on approach, the home earned an excellent reputation for the provision of care, thus consistently enjoying high occupancy levels. After carefully considering the appropriate time to sell, Mr Dunn appointed DC Care to market Grove Hill discreetly and seek a buyer who could carry the business forward.
Grove Hill was acquired by Mr Fezan Islam of Fidelity Healthcare Ltd, a well-regarded local operator operating in Wiltshire. Mr Islam seeks to continue growing and prospering the business and utilise the second phase extension planning permission to expand the home further.
We wish Mr Islam all the best with his latest purchase and a happy, well-earned retirement to Mr Dunn.
