Plas Newydd care home sold

Plas Newydd, a well established care home in Criccieth in Gwynedd, Wales, has been sold; the home is registered for 18 service users within the category of elderly residential care.

This substantial three-storey detached premises offers accommodation over all three floors. The original building has been extended, providing 18 bedrooms with scope for further expansion.

The business has been acquired by Mr Aga Yamin. He says: ”My experience with a complex tertiary hospital motivated me to acquire a care home providing sustainable high quality care to elderly residents and respite care users.

"After contacting DC Care and promptly receiving a selective list of homes from Lisa Rushworth and Alison Willoughby, I initiated the acquisition process to buy Plas Newydd Care Home. I found both Lisa and Alison extremely professional, helpful, proactive and very supportive throughout and look forward to continuing to work with them as part of my business expansion strategy.”

Alison Willoughby, regional director, DC Care, adds: “The sale of individually owned care homes is often quite emotional as owners are understandably very attached to their businesses and it matters a great deal who the next owner will be.

"I’m thrilled that Mr Pillay and Mr Yamin got on so well and I know that Mr Pillay will provide support during the transition. This will ensure service users and staff see the sale as a positive move. Both Lisa and I would like to take this opportunity to wish Mr Pillay a happy and well deserved retirement.”
