HC-One to sell a further 19 care homes

Care provider HC-One has announced that it is to sell a further 19 care homes from its sizeable portfolio, leaving hundreds of staff members unsure about their roles.

Currently the UK’s largest care home operator, HC-One has already sold a number of homes in recent months, having put 52 of its properties on the market back in March 2021. HC-One owns and operates some 275 homes specialising in dementia, nursing, and residential care.

The news of a further nineteen HC-One care homes being sold off has left hundreds of HC-One’s care workers unsure about the future of their roles.

HC-One’s announcement has also been met with alarm and dismay by trade union GMB, many of whose 460,000 members work in social care.

Natalie Grayson, GMB’s national care officer, said: “Care workers do a vital role looking after our most vulnerable. They deserve decent pay and job security.

“The company needs to look at all possible options before selling off these homes – putting at risk resident and care worker security alike.

“HC-One has to ensure they’re not putting profit ahead of key workers and vulnerable people.”
