Administrators have sold Afton Court residential care home, Bridlington, saving 16 jobs and ensuring the continued care of 19 elderly residents.
Chris White and Andy Wood of The P&A Partnership, who were appointed joint administrators of Afton Court Limited in November 2010, have sold the home to Tamby Seeneevassen, owner of East Riding-based Hexon Group of care homes.
Commenting on the sale Chris White said: “We would like to thank employees who have supported us in our efforts to improve the home and keep it open. It has been a particularly challenging administration because we have had to run the home on a day to day basis for 14 months and improve the quality of care for residents.
“When we took over Afton Court the Care Quality Commission (CQC) found several serious compliance issues during an inspection. We took immediate steps to address these issues and we are pleased that a further inspection prior to the sale of the home reported a significant improvement in the quality of the home.”
Mr Seeneevassen’s Hexon Group owns care homes in Bridlington, Hornsea, Driffield and Filey.
