Amaya Care Homes acquires Welsh establishment from Hallmark for £4m
Amaya Care Homes has acquired the Bryn Celyn care home in Maesteg in south Wales from Hallmark Care Homes for £4m.
The 56-bed care home at Maesteg Park was rated as Good by Care Inspectorate Wales in 2019.
Amaya Care Homes director Rajan Gupta said the Hertfordshire-based company would invest more over the next 12 months to improve services and facilities in the home, including implementing more stimulating activities, and organised events and trips.
“Our ambition is to provide high quality residential and nursing care and “a best life” care experience to all residents in the home,” he added.
“With the changes in the UK’s care strategy, traditional local authority care homes are increasingly under pressure to meet changing regulations and care standards, which is why the private sector must embrace these challenges, investing and improving the standards of care.”
Gupta continued: “The current Covid pandemic has demonstrated just how important quality care, great staff and a resilient business model are to operating a successful care home”.
The acquisition of Bryn Celyn care home was facilitated by a loan by Barclays.
“By really understanding the care sector, Barclays has been able to provide debt finance to support the business,” said Barclays Corporate Banking relationship director David Morgan.
“The management team have a real passion for quality care and service delivery and hands on approach will ensure the highest standards of care and securing long term employment for the local staff,” he added.
