Our family of care homes aim to deliver the kindest possible care and enhance the quality of life of Residents who choose to live with us.
Within each of our care homes the Care Home Manager leads a team of care and support Colleagues with skills and experience relevant to their respective discipline.
The number of Colleagues allocated to the respective roles in each of our care homes depends of the number of Residents living in the home, their respective needs which are identified through a pre-admission assessment and ongoing needs as outlined within the care plans which are reviewed regularly to ensure that they are up to date and relevant.
The Care Home Manager
Our Care Home Managers are carefully selected based on their experience and expertise in delivering quality care and lifestyle services and their values and commitment in leading a team to deliver the kindest possible care. Care Home Managers are supported by a number of Colleagues with specific expertise and training in their chosen field as outlined below.

In each of our Nursing Care Homes we employ registered nurses to deliver professional nursing care to Residents with complex nursing needs.
