Sodexo acquires Prestige Nursing + Care

Sodexo has announced the acquisition of UK home care provider Prestige Nursing + Care.

The company delivers home care to seniors through 44 branches in England and Scotland, focusing on a private-pay model.

With demand for social care services rising in the UK, Sodexo plans to capitalise on the growing market.

The acquisition will expand Sodexo's position in the UK private home care market, and builds on the company's experience in the sector through Comfort Keepers, a network of in-home care providers for seniors and dependent adults with more than 700 offices worldwide.

Following the acquisition, the current management team of Prestige Nursing + Care, led by managing director Jonathan Bruce, will continue to manage the business.

Sarosh Mistry, chief executive of Sodexo Global Home Care, said: "We are very impressed with the professionalism and expertise of the Prestige Nursing + Care senior leadership and the way they have embraced the private-pay model. We look forward to working together to grow this business."

Bruce added: "This agreement is a major milestone in our efforts to expand the support we provide to help our clients live independently in comfort and security at home. There are a strong set of shared values between Prestige Nursing + Care and Sodexo, and we are excited by the prospect of strengthening our in-home care services to support our continued growth and innovation."
