FRP Advisory partners appointed joint administrators of care home
FRP Advisory LLP have been appointed as administrators of Bertinaley Care Limited, which owns and operates four care homes in Hamilton, Largs, Dundee and Surrey.
Tom MacLennan, Iain Fraser and Chris Stevens, partners at the business advisory firm, have been appointed as joint administrators.
They have appointed appointed specialist care home managers and advisors Careport to ensure ongoing care for the 68 affected residents and the smooth running of the care homes during the administration process.
All five residents at the Helenslea House care home in Dundee are in the process of being moved to alternative accommodation and it is expected that the home will be closed in the coming days.
Mr MacLennan said: “Unfortunately following a number of operational challenges and a decline in resident numbers, the company has suffered significant cashflow difficulties which could not be resolved, resulting in it entering into administration.
“The health and wellbeing of the residents is of the utmost importance, which is why we have acted quickly by appointing Careport to manage the homes throughout this process and ensure that residents receive the best care. Whilst it has sadly been necessary to close the Helenslea House home in Dundee, we would encourage anyone interested in acquiring any or all of the homes to get in touch with us.”
