Prestige expands care home portfolio in Scotland

  • Comment

Major nursing and care agency Prestige Nursing and Care has announced it is expanding further, after buying out a Scottish home care firm.

The company announced yesterday that it had acquired Positive Options Homecare, which is based in Kirkcaldy and delivers care services across Fife.

Prestige said the move would strengthen its presence in Scotland, bringing its total number of branches there to five.

In all the company now has over 40 branches employing more than 3,000 nurses and care workers to deliver a range of services from temporary respite care to 24-hour home nursing.

Jonathan Bruce, managing director of Prestige, said Positive Options had “earned widespread respect for the standards it has achieved”.

It was rated “very good” in an inspection by Scotland’s Care Inspectorate earlier this year.

“Prestige and Positive Options are both like-minded businesses dedicated to first-rate home care,” said Mr Bruce.

“Following the acquisition, our combined resources will help strengthen and extend the support we can offer to meet local needs,” he added.
