Barchester Healthcare is honouring its long-serving staff as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations.
Staff who have worked with the provider for 25 years or more will receive a gift with four of them being honoured in the ‘Lifetime Achievement’ category at the provider’s annual awards in October.
Barchester’s Chief Executive, Dr Pete Calveley, said: “Barchester has grown rapidly over the last 25 years and is now one of the UK’s leading care home providers in terms of both size and quality ratings.
“The values set out in those earlier days, remain at the heart of this organisation and we continue to work hard to achieve high-standards in every aspect of the care we deliver and to promote independence, dignity and choice for the individuals living in our homes and hospitals.”
Celebrations for the anniversary will take place in Barchester homes and hospitals across the UK during October. From tea parties to live music sessions, staff and residents are planning a range of events and hope to welcome others from the community to celebrate with them.
The Barchester Care Awards, an awards ceremony for staff and volunteers, will be held on 18 October.
