We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Rogers House Residential Care Home in Gillingham, Medway from Rapport Housing and Care. The acquisition follows a transition period to enable a smooth change-over for residents and their loved ones, as well as the home’s existing care team.
Now known as Admiralty Care home, the latest move builds upon Agincare’s long-standing presence at the heart of the Medway community, including Victory Care Home in Chatham and Rochester Care Home. Both are consistently rated ‘Good’ by the CQC following transfer from the local authority 10 years ago, and retain key team members from that time. Agincare also operates respite, day care and supported living services in Medway, as well as home and live-in care services.
Agincare Chief Executive Raina Summerson said:
Agincare is absolutely delighted to welcome Rogers House into our growing family of care and nursing homes across the country.
The care home is a perfect fit for Agincare, and we have a successful track record of transferring care and nursing homes from charities, local authorities and private organisations.
We look forward to taking on the next chapter for the care home, and working with the committed and experienced care team, and existing residents.
Nestled in a quiet suburban corner of Gillingham, Admiralty Care Home is a purpose-built residential care home providing personal care for up to 43 people. The friendly home is a cherished part of the local community offering easy access to nearby conveniences including local shops, doctor’s surgery and library. It is located just one mile from Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre, which has many restaurants and shops to make a perfect day out. The home is fortunate to have Wigmore Park just a five minute stroll from the home which is perfect for summer picnics and entertainment.
The home aims to make everyone feel part of a real local community, with high quality living and care for every resident, if and when they need it. Admiralty joins our network of high-quality care and nursing homes and retirement villages nationwide. Agincare was started over 35 years ago from a single care home in Dorset by founder and Chairman Derek Luckhurst, and remains family-owned to this day.
