Saturday 12th September 2020 marks B&M Care’s 45th anniversary since the opening of Clare Lodge in 1975.

Founded by Chairman Bill Hughes, B&M Care has established longstanding success, cultivating the group as a frontrunner within the dementia care sector – but for the first time in our history, we have been met with unprecedented challenges.

With a strong foothold in the private care sector, B&M Care has adapted at pace to independently meet the demands laid out by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic; and although times have significantly changed, our Covid-19 Response has ensured that our commitment to providing safe and exceptional care for a loved one remains the same.

“What we – as a country – have observed this year is devastating. This pandemic has affected everyone and everything; but saying that, B&M Care has worked tirelessly – and still is – to ensure the health and safety of our residents and staff remains paramount,” said Bill Hughes.

He continued: “But in light of the pandemic, and our now 45th anniversary, we must remember where we’ve been, what we have done, and how our knowledge and experience will guide us to recovery from these unprecedented times.”

With a business model where people are at the forefront of the group’s person-centred vision, B&M Care’s current 26 care home portfolio is a result of our knowledge and practice extending beyond the immediacy of our homes; it’s from a commitment to developing, supporting, and sustaining new learning around not only the highly personalised care that we provide, but in areas such as design, technology, and most importantly, advancements within dementia.

Embedding innovation at the centre of our approach has cultivated positive change over the years: from our homes continually being updated, to the vocational training that our staff undertake to ensure our practice continues to meet and exceed the expectations of those considering a B&M Care Home for a loved one. But most significantly was the launch of B&M Care’s Rose Model of Dementia Care in 2018 – a model of excellence that fosters the idea that an individual should be seen as a ‘whole person’ with the aim of making every moment count.

Bill Hughes concluded: “Here’s to another 45 years of making a positive difference to those in our care.”
