A care home near Rotherham is preparing to re-open its doors to elderly residents who require residential care. Swinton Lodge in Mexborough closed earlier this year after its former owner entered administration, but it has now been acquired by leading care home operator, Pathways Care Group.
The home was taken over by administrators Begbies Traynor, who instructed specialist healthcare business agents DC Care and their redevelopment arm Vertere to market the property. At the end of the process, Pathways Care was chosen as the new owner.
Pathways Care is one of the UK's leading care home providers and operates care facilities with provision for elderly residents with nursing requirements, dementia care and those with the need for pure residential care. It also operates specialist care units for individuals with learning disabilities.
The care provider previously owned the home under the Kingsclear brand, before selling it in 1996.
Mahesh Patel, director of Pathways Care Group, said; "Swinton Lodge is a well-designed, 63-bed, purpose built care home in a densely populated area. We hope to reopen the care home in a few weeks following a full refurbishment, and we intend to offer the highest standards of care to residents. This particular care home is at the very heart of the community and we look forward to opening the doors again and welcoming local residents and their families."
