Residents and their families have rated Colten Care as one of the Top 20 Large Care Home Groups in the UK.
The family-run company which has 20 care homes covering Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Sussex – including Braemar Lodge at Salisbury – won a place in the top 20 thanks to positive reviews on everything from care and support, to food quality and treatment with dignity.
There are over 18,500 care homes in the UK, but only 20 companies are honoured in the poll by the care home reviewer carehome.co.uk.
Mark Aitchison, chief executive of Colten Care said: “All our residential and nursing homes inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) have been rated as good or outstanding.
“Our residents – and their health and happiness – are at the centre of everything we do and this latest award from carehome.co.uk is testament to that.”
Davina Ludlow, chair of carehome.co.uk said: “Care home groups which put dignity, compassion and kindness at the heart of their care are making a profound difference to residents’ lives.
“Our reviews show that Colten Care provides a high standard of care throughout its homes and we would like to congratulate it on being a top large care home group.”
Colten Care’s Newstone House in Sturminster Newton, is also named in carehome.co.uk’s Top 20 Care Homes of 2018.
