Zolfo Cooper administrators called to care home business Choices

Peter Holder, Elizabeth Mackay and Anne O'Keefe are appointed administrators to Choices Care group

CARE HOME BUSINESS Choices call in administrators from Zolfo Cooper.

Peter Holder, Elizabeth Mackay and Anne O’Keefe, partners at Zolfo Cooper, have been appointed joint administrators to Choices Care at Home, Choices Holdings, Choices Group and Choices Community Services, following cash flow difficulties.

The administrators sold a division largely offering care at home services, to Mears Care Scotland on appointment, including 500 staff.

Holder said: “The key aspect all along in this process has been to ensure that services continue to be provided to all users without interruption. We are extremely pleased therefore to have agreed a swift sale of the supported living business…

“Our focus is very much on securing a suitable buyer for the remaining businesses. We have already received a number of enquiries from interested parties and would welcome further expressions of interest. In the meantime, we will continue to ensure that service users experience no disruption to the quality care they are accustomed to.”

The group has a range of care services providing support to the elderly and those with learning disabilities throughout Scotland and the North East of England. It employs about 1,400 staff.
