Anchor¹s head of lifestyle services Bob Bird said: “By consistently raising our standards we make a significant contribution to the quality of life of older people. This award is a reflection of the hard work done by the team over the years.” Anchor Homes has Hospitality Assured status awarded by the Hotel and Catering International Management Association, making it the only independent care provider to receive the award across all its homes.
