Ashberry Healthcare Acquire Engelberg, Wolverhampton

Exciting News: Ashberry Healthcare Expands Reach with Acquisition of Engelberg Care Home

We are thrilled to announce that Ashberry Healthcare has successfully acquired Engelberg Care Home located in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, from Methodist Homes (MHA). This strategic move marks a significant milestone for Ashberry Healthcare, further solidifying our commitment to providing exceptional care services across the UK.

With this acquisition, Ashberry Healthcare now proudly operates seven homes, including those in Surrey, Herefordshire, Cheshire, Carmarthenshire, and now, in the heart of Wolverhampton. Specialising in residential, nursing, and specialist dementia care services, we continue to uphold our dedication to providing compassionate and personalised care to all residents.

Engelberg Care Home, renowned for its exemplary residential care for 34 residents, comes with a seasoned team that will seamlessly transition under the TUPE process. Led by Ashberry’s Chief Executive, Nigel Denny, and Chief Finance Officer, Gary Cottrell, this acquisition marks the first since our successful management buyout in 2020.

At Ashberry Healthcare, we are committed to enhancing the lives of our residents by offering unique, community-centric living experiences. Our model, which emphasises smaller group living in period properties and country houses, aims to foster camaraderie, empowerment, and independence among our residents.

Chief Executive Nigel Denny: ‘We are looking forward to building on this with a focus on our community-centric, small group living model that offers something different to the local market for those individuals seeking the camaraderie, empowerment, and independence that a smaller home can offer.’
‘We’re looking forward to meeting everyone connected to Engelberg and hope this is the first of several acquisitions over the coming years as we continue to build our portfolio.’

We extend our warmest welcome to all residents, families, and staff members of Engelberg Care Home as we embark on this new chapter together. This acquisition represents just the beginning of our journey, as we actively seek further opportunities to expand our portfolio and continue making a positive impact in the lives of those we serve.

In expressing his confidence in the transition, MHA’s Chief Executive, Sam Monaghan, stated, “We are delighted that Engelberg care home will pass into the hands of Ashberry Healthcare, where we know residents and the team which cares for them will be well looked after.”

Ashberry Healthcare’s finance partner on the deal was Barclays Bank. Financial details of the acquisition have not been disclosed.

Stay tuned as we embark on this exciting journey together, committed to delivering excellence in care and fostering vibrant communities where every individual thrives.
