Commenting on behalf of DC Care, Andy Sandel who managed the sale through to completion said "We were instructed in March 2013 to find a purchaser for the home following the tragic death of the former owners Mr & Mrs Beeharry. It has been a difficult process and all credit must go to the loyal and caring staff at the home, we are all thankful of their efforts over the last couple of years. I believe that in ARMSCARE we have found a good quality local operator that will invest in the home and its staff which in turn will improve the environment for the residents."


"The disposal of Victoria Lodge in 2013/14 was my first dealings with DC Care and although there were many issues along the way, the sale went through and I was extremely pleased with the service I received. When it came to selling my other care home, High Trees RCH in Enfield, I had no hesitation in contacting Andy and Clare at DC Care and once again they successfully found the ideal buyers for the home."
