Hartford Care acquires three Isle of Wight care homes


Hartford Care has recently completed its acquisition of Scio Healthcare Limited, compromising of three high-quality nursing homes on the Isle of Wight, consisting of 134 beds and over 240 staff.


At Hartford Care we take pride in our long-established history as a family-owned business, and firmly believe our excellent reputation within the care industry has been achieved by remaining the home of choice across the South of England.


Under the leadership of husband and wife duo, Sean and Jo Gavin, the locations will be governed by the three core principles of Hartford Care; Care, Comfort and Companionship. Hartford Care’s philosophy of care is completely focused on providing a safe and comfortable lifestyle for residents and family carers, in a home-from-

home setting.


Each of the care homes is led by an experienced Home Manager and a team of nursing,  care and support staff that represent the warm, respectful and empathetic approach of Hartford Care.  We firmly believe that each and every one of our residents has an absolute right to choose the way they live their lives.  Whatever their preferences, we do all we can to support our residents by providing them with the best possible environment in which to enjoy them.


The three beautiful nursing homes are set in great locations on the Isle of Wight, close to the local beaches and amenities:

  • Highfield Nursing Home, located in the seaside town of Ryde and managed by Yvonne Lawrence, has 44 bedrooms and offers nursing, residential and dementia care.
  • Springfield Nursing Home, which is to be found in the well-known seaside town of Shanklin and is managed by Yvonne Sparks, has 42 bedrooms and caters largely for those with more complex nursing needs.
  • The Elms, a character residence in the village of Bembridge, is managed by Janet Loughlan, has 48 bedrooms and offers nursing, residential and dementia care.


CEO of Hartford Care Sean Gavin says:  we are proud to welcome our three homes on the Isle of Wight to the Hartford Care family. We believe that every single one of our residents is individual and unique and I am confident that the three homes, as a long-established care business on the Isle of Wight, will benefit from our Hartford Care core values, ethos and way of working. We look forward to getting to know the staff, residents and local communities on the Isle of Wight in the coming months. 


The homes will be supported by Tom Flux, who is joining Hartford Care from Scio Healthcare Ltd, and has taken on the role of Area Operations Manager.
