Everyone at Prestige Nursing + Care is very excited this week, as we’ve announced that we have acquired Elite Care (Scotland) Ltd.
Elite Care was originally established in St Andrews in Fife over 30 years ago, and also has regional offices in Dundee and Crieff. The 170 staff and management have worked very hard to build up a great reputation for delivering high quality care services, which is exactly why Elite Care is going to be such a great fit with Prestige, which also prides itself on the quality of its care. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be joining forces with such a well-established provider of home care services in Scotland. I’m pleased to say that all the staff, who provide thousands of hours of care to senior citizens and vulnerable people in Tayside and Fife, will continue to work as normal following the acquisition. We are actively looking to recruit to expand the team and the well-known and respected name, Elite Care, is being retained. The acquisition also allows us to increase Prestige’s share of the Scottish care market while reinforcing our strategy of acquiring well-diversified, high quality mid-market care providers. This opportunity for us to grow Prestige, which provides services ranging from occasional relief care to 24 hour Home Nursing has come about because Elite Care’s owners are planning to enjoy a well-deserved retirement after over 30 years of building a very successful and valued home care business. However, I’m delighted to say that Jason Logan, who has worked at Elite Care for several years, will remain with us to head up the business under Prestige. Jason is also very excited about the opportunity this presents and is looking forward to developing Elite Care‘s services even further. Staff at Elite Care’s offices will be joining over 100 Prestige staff at over 40 branches nationwide, and over 3,000 nurses and care workers registered to provide homecare and healthcare services. We are looking forward very much to working with Elite care’s staff and clients.
