Elderly care and retirement home provider Bolton Clarke Group has acquired its Western Australian counterpart Acacia Living Group.
Acacia Living Group has three retirement homes, seven retirement villages, two respite centers and home care services in Perth and the Washington State area of southwestern state in Geraldton.
Acacia Living Group was previously known as RSL Care WA while Bolton Clarke was born out of the 2015 merger between RSL Care in Queensland and RDNS in Victoria.
The merger expands Bolton Clarke Group’s presence in Western Australia and adds to its 25 existing seniors communities and 25 residential retirement homes in Queensland and New South Wales.
The organization also provides home care and home care services in Qld, NSW, Victoria and Tasmania and New Zealand through RDNS NZ.
The group also includes the Bolton Clarke Research Institute and senior care training provider Altura Learning.
Bolton Clarke Group CEO Steve Muggleton said bringing the two like-minded organizations together would strengthen and expand service offerings for Washington state’s seniors.
He said the fact that the two organizations shared similar histories and values and offered a full range of care services made the merger a natural fit and an easy transition.
Bolton Clarke Group has a $ 700 million development pipeline of projects across Victoria, NSW and Queensland. Its first Victorian retirement village, which comprises 81 independent living units in St Kilda, is nearing completion.
