Mansfield Care Takeover Bield Care Homes

Bield care homes

A deal has been agreed which saw residents and staff at three Bield care homes transfer to a new provider earlier this month.

Since announcing last year that it would be closing 12 of its care homes, staff at Bield have been working tirelessly to find other providers to take them over.

Following progressive discussions, the housing and care provider announced that two of its homes in Edinburgh and one in Jedburgh will be transferred to Mansfield Care. These transfers follow on from the transfer in May of Finavon Court, in Glenrothes to Kingdom Homes.

The new provider will take over Haugh Street and Craighall Road in Edinburgh and Milfield Gardens in Jedburgh in a move that means all residents and staff can seamlessly transfer over with very few changes.

Kingdom Homes to Takeover Bield Care Home

A DEAL which will see all residents and staff transfer from a Bield care home to a local provider has been finalised.

Last year, Bield announced 12 of its care homes across Scotland were to close and has since been working tirelessly to find other providers to keep them open.

Following extensive discussions, the housing and care provider has announced that an agreement has been reached which will see locally based Kingdom Homes Ltd buy Finavon Court in Glenrothes, Fife.

The deal means that residents seamlessly transfer over to the new Kingdom Homes, with very few changes being experienced and, in particular, all existing staff will keep their jobs.
