New care home provider Allegra Care has completed the purchase of its first home as it goes on the hunt for other similar acquisition opportunities.
Allegra Care is part of the DGS Capital Partners group of companies and is the sister company of London focused assisted living business Amicala. The chief executive is Helen Jones, who has held senior roles in the care home and retirement sector in Australia and she is supported by executive director Henry Lumby, who was formerly head of retirement living at Savills.
The firm’s first acquisition is St. George’s Nursing Home in Weston-Super-Mare, which is a 66-bed home built in 2012.
Jones said: “The home is beautiful, and we will be working hard with the excellent team in place to deliver outstanding care and support for our current and future residents and families.
“St George’s represents our first home, and we are actively looking now to grow our group with similar high-quality homes and groups. We have a strong leadership team in place and are hugely excited to get started.”
