Langton Matravers nursing home in administration

An adult nursing and residential home has been placed into administration ahead of an expected sale.

The Old Rectory in Langton Matravers, near Swanage, Dorset cares for 21 residents over 65 requiring treatment for disease, disorder or injury.

Operators DAH Healthcare Limited has blamed cash flow difficulties linked to occupancy levels and staffing issues.

Administrators Begbies Traynor say measures have been taken to protect jobs and keep the home open.

The home was given a positive rating in its latest Care Quality Commission inspection in May. It is expected to become available for sale within three months.

Joint administrator Julie Palmer said: "We have worked hard to ensure there is no disruption to residents and that they continue to receive an excellent standard of care.

"We would also like to stress that despite past difficulties, the business is fundamentally profitable and is now in a position to prosper."
