Danforth Care Group celebrates 250 care job milestone

Danforth Care Group has reached a key milestone of creating over 250 new roles in the care sector.

The group has opened eight residential care homes over the past year and plans to open a further eight homes over the next 18 months. All eight new homes have been open for under a year, and already they have had positive effects on their local communities, with each home having set up ongoing projects with local primary schools, charities, community groups, and churches.

Tamara Crosswell, home manager from Broadlands Care Home in Norwich, said: “Broadlands Care home has become a great influence on the local community, establishing close connections with various professional and local community groups. We have developed close networks with a mother and baby group, who visit us once a week. We are also working closely with two local dementia groups.

“It has been a great success watching someone's life being enhanced with their individual care and well- being and the team being part of that journey.  The staff have embraced the high standard of training and they have kept this at 100 per cent overall with completion in all fields.

“The reviews have been very positive, and the home is now rated 10 out of 10 in care home reviews and also in the East of England it is currently 15 out of 1,566 care homes.”

Jessica Blythe, chief of staff at Danforth, added: “When it comes to overcoming challenges such as meeting building completion deadlines, a good knowledge for the local area has been imperative. Having the support of a good team and a home manager who can be on board from the start of the commissioning process is also very helpful.”
