Our experienced leadership team is responsible for a small number of bespoke homes, so we can give each one our full support to deliver the highest quality care.

We are very proud that each of our homes is unique. We aim to be the care home of choice, in the communities we serve.

How we are regulated, monitored and inspected

CQC logo

All health and social care services are registered and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC inspect services at varying intervals. Inspections of care homes are often 3 yearly unless risk assessed as needing a more regular inspection regime. Care providers also have to submit an annual return to the CQC setting out how they are meeting regulations. Due to the infrequency of inspections, their visits are a snapshot in time although to inform their risk assessment approach to their inspection frequency, they also rely on information provided by other statutory bodies as below.


Rutland County Council are our host Local Authority. They have a dedicated Quality Assurance department who are responsible for the quality of social care being delivered in their area. They thoroughly inspect our home at least annually and they measure the home against their assessment framework to ensure that safety and quality of care is being delivered. Our rating from our most recent inspection was Meets Expectations. To read the full report click here.
