Press Release 

30th Nov 2020


Aperee has announced another acquisition with the completion of a transaction to acquire Havenwood Retirement Village, a 64-bed home in Ballygunner Co. Waterford, for an undisclosed sum.

Aperee CEO, Paul Kingston said this is another significant acquisition by Aperee as it continues its strategy of acquiring top quality homes.

Mr Kingston said: ”We are interested in acquiring homes which have an excellent reputation of care and the home itself is modern and has a capacity to expand. Havenwood meets all these requirements and we look forward to continuing the excellent care provided under the stewardship of Marie and Padraig. We also look forward to continuing to serve the needs of our residents in Havenwood, ably led by Regina Power (Director of Nursing) and her team.”

Departing owners Padraig and Marie Dolan said: “We are delighted that an experienced sector professional team like Aperee, who share our care ethos and led by Paul Kingston who has 20 plus years’ experience in the sector, has acquired our Nursing Home and have no doubt they will continue the same ethos of care we have delivered over the previous 15 years.”

Padraig added his “thanks and appreciation to the wonderful team, past and present in Havenwood” 

He said: “Without the team, Havenwood would not have achieved its reputation for providing excellence in care”. Furthermore, we would like to thank all the current residents, their families and past families for trusting the Havenwood team with the care of their loved ones.”

Aperee was established as the operational arm of the Blackbee Healthcare Fund and is currently actively looking for opportunities to acquire top quality trading homes and well-located development sites.

Havenwood Retirement Village was established in 2005 by Padraig and Marie Dolan, who have operated the home for the past 15 years.  It has an excellent reputation for providing long and short stay facilities for residents with a broad range of care requirements.
