Together, the combined organization employs more than 10,000 people in 70 residential aged care communities, 36 retirement home villages and in providing services to 130,000 home care clients.

Group CEO Stephen Muggleton said: “Allity is a recognized and trusted supplier and it is exciting to bring together two such successful operators. We are both committed to providing best-in-class care, improving the customer and employee experience, and responding positively to the changing national environment for seniors and health care.

“Allity’s proven capabilities in residential aged care will complement Bolton Clarke’s existing operations to rapidly create a leading national aged care platform.

“It is important to note that both organizations have strong clinical credentials focused on delivering innovative, evidence-based services to support resident health and well-being. Thanks to Bolton Clarke’s longstanding investment in research and deep clinical expertise, we are well placed to jointly deliver practical solutions such as chronic disease management, hospital avoidance programs, people with dementia, transitional care and rehabilitation for more people.

Growth announcement follows Bolton Clarke’s 2021 acquisition of Acacia Living Group in Western Australia and ongoing capital works pipeline, including new integrated communities in Victoria, New Wales South and Queensland. Its Europa on Alma retirement residence in St Kilda welcomed its first residents last month.
