One of the UK’s largest not-for-profit care providers, The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT), has celebrated its Silver Jubilee.
To mark the milestone, OSJCT held Silver Jubilee Tea Parties for residents, employees and guests, and planted a tree in each of its regions.
Dan Hayes, Chief Executive of OSJCT, said: “Twenty five years ago we assumed responsibility for 16 care homes in Lincolnshire with a focus on supporting the sick, aged and infirm through the provision of serviced, residential facilities or in community care.
“Even though a lot has changed in the last 25 years, our commitment to delivering the best possible care and support for our residents and their families has not and I am extremely proud of the 4,500 people who work so hard to care for our residents.
“The Trust has grown significantly since 1992 and we have developed many new ways of providing care and support for residents, especially for those with dementia. I am sure the next quarter of a century will see us continue to develop and innovate and we will remain just as focused on caring for the older people in our communities as we were 25 years ago.”
OSJCT operates 70 care homes and 14 extra care housing schemes across Lincolnshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire.
