SoVaNow.com / July 30, 2013The partners of DECCA Group, LLC announced Tuesday their intention to sell the Somerset Assisted Living facility in South Boston, to Commonwealth Assisted Living Group in Charlottesville.
Commonwealth currently operates fifteen facilities, three in the Northern Neck, one in the Shenandoah Valley, five in the Tidewater region and six in the Southwest.
Somerset opened in 1998.
Its primary mission is to provide a later life home to friends, family and residents of the area who required a higher level and standard of care. To create the most friendly and comfortable environment for residents, the partners hired experienced caregivers from within the community.
Over the last fifteen years, Somerset has served hundreds of guests, many of whom have lived there for years.
The partners of DECCA Group, LLC, Dr. Lucien Roberts, Thomas R. Elliott Jr., Mrs. Billie Reynolds, Mrs. Weston Gupton, and the estate of Harold Moore did not make this decision without making sure that the new owners would maintain the Somerset standards of care and the nurturing environment that residents have come to expect.
Commonwealth Assisted Living Group met their benchmarks and has a reputation for excellence throughout their other facilities. The Group has the knowledge, experience and financial resources to assure the residents, employees and the community that Somerset will continue to serve their needs.
The partners expressed their thanks to thanks to their dedicated and caring staff, many of whom have been with Somerset since its inception. They also thanked residents and their families over the years for their confidence and participation in creating and maintaining the welcoming and caring environment.
The acquisition is expected to be finalized in October. 599
