Provider Agincare to take over four London care homes

Family-owned provider Agincare has been appointed by Southwark Council to operate four care homes under a long-term partnership arrangement.

Greenhive Care Home and Waterside Care Home in Peckham, Rose Court Care Home in Rotherhithe, and Bluegrove House Care Home in Bermondsey will transfer from existing provider Anchor to Agincare in May.

Agincare is working with residents at the homes and Southwark Council to ensure a smooth transfer. The family-owned provider has a proven track record of developing care home services, with many transfers from local authorities, charities, and independent providers.

Chief operating officer for Agincare’s care home group, Tim Buckley, said: “We look forward to warmly welcoming the people living and working at Bluegrove House, Greenhive, Rose Court and Waterside into the Agincare family, and getting to know the local communities.

“Our immediate priority is a positive transfer for the care home teams, residents and their loved ones so that they feel informed, supported and reassured that the homes remain in safe hands.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with Southwark Council, the South East London ICB and other local organisations across the borough to further develop sustainable, quality service provision and meet changing health and social care needs.”

Cllr Evelyn Akoto, cabinet member for health and wellbeing at Southwark Council, added: “We are delighted to welcome Agincare as the new provider for four of our care homes in the borough. We are grateful to the residents and their families who helped us choose Agincare as the best team to meet the changing needs of our older people.

“Agincare’s vast experience and commitment to our Residential Care Charter, which is about achieving only the highest standards for staff and residents, means we have every confidence they will do a fantastic job caring for residents.”
