We have set this page up to try and ensure you have the information you need as we transition your home from being owned by brighterkind to being owned by Barchester.
I am delighted that Barchester have this opportunity to take over the running of your home. We are one of the UK’s largest care providers supporting people to live independent lives with dignity and respect. We provide a wide range of residential, nursing, and expert dementia care services led by world-renowned dementia expert Caroline Baker, as well as rehabilitation and palliative care services. Barchester Healthcare supports 11,000 residents across 196 care homes, some with domiciliary care and assisted living facilities and 6 independent mental health hospitals with over 15,000 staff members and we are proud to say that 7 of them are rated Outstanding by external regulating bodies.
Barchester shares similar values to brighterkind, and takes pride in delivering the best quality of care to our residents. Your home and its team members have proven themselves to be the best of brighterkind, which has made the opportunity for Barchester to purchase your home a logical decision. We are confident that the transaction will be swift and we hope to conclude the purchase in early January 2020.
We will be meeting with staff over the coming months and I want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to make this a smooth transition for residents, relatives and staff. Below are some frequently asked questions that we hope will be helpful to you. If there is anything that you would like more clarity on please do get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org.
