DC Care has completed the sale of Parklands Care Home, in Rawcliffe, near Goole on behalf of HICA. Regional Director Alison Willoughby commented: "This is the fourth home in the group that we were instructed to market and we are absolutely delighted that we have been able to assist HICA in the sale." HICA intends to focus on high dependency dementia care and has reorganised its portfolio of homes with that aim in mind.
The new owners of Parklands, Sensation Care, are already well established in the care industry and worked closely with HICA to ensure the transition to new ownership progressed as smoothly as possible. They have ambitious plans to improve and extend the home, which they aim to make the flagship home in the area.
HICA was keen to ensure the home continued as a care home and with new owners they felt understood their ethos and approach to care. Staff were involved at an early stage and every effort was made to ensure everyone knew how important the continuing commitment to care was, and will remain so in the coming months and years.
To date, DC Care has sold the following HICA homes: Holyrood House, Danes Lea, Stanage Lodge and Parklands. All of the homes are in East Yorkshire and North East Lincolnshire. Clare Jones, Senior Sales Negotiator managed the group of sales on behalf of HICA. Clare worked very closely with HICA on a day to day basis and said: "When you speak on a very regular basis with clients, you get a real understanding of the type of operator they are and develop a level of trust. I really am thrilled that I was able to help HICA and wish them the very best for their future business aims."
