Bayshore | | Press Release
LINDSAY, ON (February 6, 2018) – Bayshore HealthCare announced today that it has acquired Rest Assure Community Support Services which has been based in the Kawartha Lakes for over 18 years. The sale was prompted by Rest Assure owner Marie Leger.
The sale was completed December 29, 2017. Rest Assure employees and clients were notified and welcomed by Bayshore prior to the finalization of the sale.
“After much consideration on planning for retirement I wanted to be sure that our staff and clients could move forward with a company that would provide them with the same level of respect, care and support they were used to receiving from Rest Assure,” says Leger. “Bayshore HealthCare is the perfect fit. Our clients will continue to receive care from the same team of caregivers and will have more care options available to them through Bayshore.”
“Our continued investment in innovation and home care services, allows us to provide additional services to Rest Assure clients,” adds Erin Wilczynski, Area Director, Bayshore Home Health . “We look forward to offering continued support to Rest Assure clients and their families.”
To support the staff and clients of Rest Assure, Bayshore will maintain the Rest Assure office in Kent Place Mall in Lindsay. This will also allow Bayshore to increase their commitment to be the local provider of care in Lindsay, Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough.
