Family run care group Stow Healthcare has confirmed the planned acquisition of Manson House care home in Bury St Edmunds, which is being bought from the farming charity RABI. Manson House is a popular 31 bed care home with a Good CQC rating and is set in stunning gardens, in the heart of the historic town centre. It also provides 23 self contained independent living apartments. The sale is likely to complete during summer 2022.
Roger Catchpole, Managing Director of Stow Healthcare says:
“As a farming family, we are honoured to be taking over the care home from the oldest agricultural charity in the UK, RABI. Stow Healthcare strives to be the premier provider of residential and nursing care in the East of England and we will be maintaining the incredible level of service RABI has given to the residents at Manson House.
“We endeavour to look after our staff, and believe it is very important to bring the community to our residents, by holding events where local people can get involved with the care home, and promoting jobs to local people, whilst continuing to develop loyal staff at Manson House.
“We will also ensure the premises are well maintained, to provide first-class living accommodation with modern amenities and technology. We are very much looking forward to working with RABI, its staff, residents and families to create a seamless transition and exciting future for the home.”
John Hoskin, RABI trustee and chair of the homes committee, says:
“RABI has gone to great lengths to carefully select highly rated and experienced care providers who will continue to run Manson House in the way that staff, residents and tenants would want and expect. We are confident that the wealth of experience and ethos of Stow Healthcare will bring new opportunities to the local community; offer an exceptional level of support to the current residents, as well as attracting new ones; and create more training and development opportunities for the staff teams.”
