Agincare completes acquisition of Somerset homes

April 30, 2024

Family-owned leading care provider Agincare is excited to announce the acquisition of care homes Critchill Court in Frome and Sunnymeade in Chard from Somerset Care Limited (29/4).

The two homes join Agincare’s growing network of 29 high-quality residential care and nursing homes nationwide, including Beaufort Park Retirement Village in Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset. It also operates 12 care homes, supported living, home, live-in and extra care services across Wiltshire and Dorset.

Dorset-based Agincare is a family-owned, independent care provider with strong community values and over 37 years of experience delivering a comprehensive range of high-quality, person-centred care and support services across the country.

Laura Coupe, Managing Director for Agincare’s residential care and nursing homes, said:

We are absolutely delighted to welcome residents, relatives and teams at Critchill Court and Sunnymeade to Agincare, and look forward to getting to know them and their local communities very well in the coming weeks. Critchill Court and Sunnymeade are in safe hands, and our top priority is to ensure that a smooth transition takes place for everyone who lives or works at the homes.

Agincare’s success is built on strong partnerships, and our positive track record over many years is evidence of the successful transfer and management of care homes and other community services from local authorities, charities, and other such organisations.

Beaufort Park Retirement Village in Burnham-on-Sea and Furlong Close supported living community in Rowde were at risk of closure before being transferred to Agincare and are now once again thriving places for people to live.

Agincare is a robust, agile and sustainable organisation that is extremely experienced in operating a broad range of care services, including residential care and nursing homes, where each home requires a different approach depending on the local community it serves.  

Laura adds:

Agincare possesses over 37 years of experience managing a diverse range of residential care and nursing homes nationwide; enabling us to select and deploy the most suitable operating model for each home whilst guaranteeing our proven standards of high-quality care.

“We work collaboratively with partners and build a deep understanding of our local communities in order to deliver high quality, personalised care for everyone who needs it, regardless of whether they are supported by a local authority, NHS, or are self-funded.
