“I am committed to providing the highest quality of life for those residents living with us and support for their families. I believe that through continued investment in staff, adapting to increased residents’ needs and working closely with stakeholders, Barchester’s personalised approach to care will help us lead the way in continuing to achieve excellence in the social care sector.“
