Future secure for Helen Ley
Published date: 23 Feb 2012 at 5:48PM
The future of Helen Ley Care Centre in Leamington Spa has been secured after an agreement between the MS Society and new providers Castel Froma was reached today.
Contracts have been agreed by both parties and are expected to be officially exchanged in the coming days, securing a future service for people affected by MS.
In November the MS Society announced it had signed an initial agreement, known as ‘Heads of Terms,’ with Castel Froma - a Leamington-based specialist care centre.
The transfer is now expected to be completed by mid-April. In the meantime, the centre is now taking bookings, which can be made by calling the centre on 01926 313550.
Simon Gillespie, Chief Executive of the MS Society, said: “We are delighted we now have certainty that we will be able to transfer Helen Ley into the ownership of Castel Froma. They are a well-known local care provider which receives a lot of support from the local community, and it’s reassuring that they will be able to continue to provide a service for people with MS at Helen Ley. We look forward to welcoming new guests on Saturday.
“We recognise that there have been a number of twists and turns over the last few months but we’ve achieved what we set out to do, which is good news for everyone affected. We’d like to thank our staff for continuing to provide excellent care and support for guests and residents during what we know has been a very difficult time.”
In 2011 we transferred Leuchie House, a respite service in Scotland, to new ownership and in January transferred Woodlands, in York, to new owners. Last week, contracts were also exchanged to transfer the MS Society’s only other care centre, Brambles in Surrey, into new hands.
It’s reassuring that Castel Froma will be able to continue to provide a service for people with MS at Helen Ley. We look forward to welcoming new guests on Saturday.Simon Gillespie, Chief Executive of the MS Society
