RABI is pleased to confirm the sale of the charity’s two residential homes in Suffolk and Somerset, with both homes being sold to award winning, family owned care specialist providers.
Stow Healthcare, owned and managed by the Catchpole family, will take forward Manson House in Bury-St-Edmunds. Beaufort House, based in Burnham-on-Sea, is being purchased by Agincare, another family operated business, owned by the Luckhurst family.
A multi-award-winning family business, Stow Healthcare prides itself on providing high-quality, family and community focussed care. The Catchpole family, who have strong links to agriculture, bring experience from their established business in the east of England, that comprises six residential and nursing homes across Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.
Agincare is a well-established provider of care with deep connections to the local community in the south-west of England. Drawing on decades of experience, Agincare are committed to providing a homely, warm and welcoming approach to care. Founder and chairman, Derek Luckhurst was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the prestigious Leaders In Care Awards in 2021.
“RABI has followed an exhaustive selection process to secure the best possible buyers for Manson House and Beaufort House,” says RABI Chief Executive Alicia Chivers.
“We are confident that the wealth of experience and ethos of both Stow Healthcare and Agincare will offer an exceptional level of care and support to the residents and tenants at both homes,” she adds.
It is anticipated that the sale of the two homes will complete during August 2022. Monies released from the sales will be used by RABI to increase the support available to farming people requiring care or assistance in their own homes, or through local supported care.
