DC Care Sells Specialist Care Group in Surrey

Chatsworth Care, Surrey

Highly regarded learning disability provider Chatsworth Care has been acquired by Heathcotes Group for an undisclosed sum. The Surrey based group comprising 5 residential properties, with capacity for 36 residents was formed in 2002 by Gabby & Graham Smith. Heathcotes will continue to provide high quality residential services across the services in Sutton, Carlshalton & Banstead and will be expanding their services in the South to provide person-centred specialist residential accommodation for adults with Autism Learning Disabilities and Mental Illness and associated challenging behaviours.

Commenting on the sale for DC Care, Southern based Business Appraiser, Andy Sandel said "Heathcotes are one of a large number of specialist providers that we deal with that are very keen to expand their business, particularly in the South. The sale of Chatsworth Care was carried out discreetly with the staff, residents and families being informed prior to completion. I know that the decision to sell the business was a difficult one for Mr & Mrs Smith but I think we managed to find the ideal purchaser in Heathcotes."

Andy went on to say "With demand for acquisitions in the specialist care sector so strong at present DC Care is keen to hear from owners that may be considering their options. We currently have several similar sized groups under offer and personally I haven’t seen this much activity and this amount of funding available for acquisitions for many years."

"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."
