SAS Daniels’ client, Premier Care, acquired two businesses in South Cumbria in December 2014, saving 25 jobs and providing continuity of care for customers.
The Premier Care Group has stepped in to save the Beamsmoor Care at Home company in Ulverston – which also serves the Barrow area – and its sister Mint Quality Care, serving the Kendal area.
A spokesman for Premier Care said, “These are two businesses that needed saving and we were able to step in with enough time to ensure there is no loss of service for the customers and the reassurance for their families that they will receive only the highest quality of care.
Additional services will come on stream in both areas once we have everything in place, and we want to ensure that we have all of our processes in place to support our customers and our staff.”
The Kendal centre will be led by manager Ruth Kendall, while Diane Whitelock will continue to be manager at Ulverston, with the further support of the senior team at Premier Care.
Premier Care was advised on the transaction by Head of the Corporate team Jeremy Orrell. Jeremy Orrell said, “We were presented with a challenging timescale to complete the transaction during the Christmas break, which we achieved and took great satisfaction out of helping to safeguard both jobs and service users’ care.”
