Gosberton House care home in Lincolnshire is a family run home for the elderly and is in a magnificent Georgian country house.
Gordon and Vicki purchased the building in 1989 and converted it into a residential care home with nursing providing accommodation for the elderly, infirm and terminally ill.
Prior to the purchase Gordon and Vicki discussed the proposal with Adrian Reynolds and appointed Duncan & Toplis as their accountants and business advisers and have been with them ever since.
With the care home sector facing significant funding challenges as well as complicated income streams Gordon says that the support of Duncan & Toplis has been invaluable:
Diane Johnson, associate director at Duncan & Toplis, is Gosberton House Care Home’s dedicated adviser. Diane says she’s proud of the help she and her colleagues have given:
“It has been a pleasure working with Gordon and Vicki. I work closely with them and their business, and I’m pleased to have been by their side for so long.”
“Gosberton House Care Home has grown considerably over the past 30 years. We have assisted in advising Gordon and Vicki to help them achieve their goals, so it’s great to see how far they’ve come.”
“Duncan & Toplis has been a great partner right from the start. They helped us to start our business and convert and extend this wonderful building to meet our needs and their expertise has made things so much easier for us."
"They helped us secure the funding we needed and they helped us through a very important period for the business while we expanded to provide care for a total of 46 residents. It has been widely reported that government funding for the care sector is not sufficient."
"Duncan & Toplis have helped us to make the most of this limited funding to enable us to operate efficiently without sacrificing the quality of care by giving tax advice and advising on crucial business decisions.”
“Duncan & Toplis has provided us with our own dedicated advisor, Diane, who is always happy to help and give advice whenever we need it using her specialist knowledge of the care sector. They really understand our needs and appreciate the challenges we face.”
“We have been with Duncan & Toplis for 30 years and I am sure we will be with them for the next 30 years, I cannot recommend them enough.”
