Dorset care home in administration

A 31-bed nursing and residential home in Dorset has been placed into administration ahead of going up for sale.

Julie Palmer and Simon Campbell, of business recovery specialists Begbies Traynor, have been appointed joint administrators for The Old Rectory Nursing and Residential Home, run by DAH Healthcare Limited, in Langton Matravers, near Swanage.

The care home, whose 21 residents have not been affected, puts its woes down to cash flow difficulties resulting from historical occupancy rate and staffing issues. However, the business is continuing to trade, thanks to a range of stabilisation measures taken by the administrators.
