St Martins Care 2023: Residents, Ratings, and Remarkable Achievements

As we say goodbye to a busy but remarkable year, let's take a moment to reflect on the milestones, growth, and successes that shaped St Martins Care in 2023.

It has been a year filled with compassion, innovation, and recognition, highlighting our commitment to quality care and continuous improvement.

Residents and Staff

In 2023 we welcomed 426 new residents into our homes, where they found comfort, care, and a homely environment. Alongside our residents, 261 dedicated new staff members started their careers at St Martins Care, joining our compassionate team.

Quality Recognition

Our dedication to providing top-tier care was acknowledged with pride as St Martins Care homes received an impressive 43 ratings of 4 and 5 stars. 

It is always great to hear from families of loved ones in our care homes, knowing that they feel happy with their loved ones in our care is invaluable. 

We are really proud of this statistic, and these ratings are a testament to the dedication and hard work of our staff members who prioritise excellence in every aspect of their roles.
