OSJCT celebrates silver anniversary


Posted on June 9th, by geoff in Caring Times. Comments Off on OSJCT celebrates silver anniversary

One of the UK’s biggest not-for-profit care providers has celebrated its Silver Jubilee.

The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT) first started providing nursing and residential care when it took over responsibility for 16 homes from Lincolnshire County Council in May 1992. Today, the Trust operates 70 care homes and 14 extracare housing schemes across Lincolnshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire.

To mark the anniversary, all of the Trust’s homes held Silver Jubilee Tea Parties for residents, relatives, employees and guests during May. Two care homes in each region also planted a silver birch tree for the jubilee.

“The Trust has grown significantly since 1992 and we have developed many new ways of providing care and support for residents, especially for those with dementia,” said OSJCT chief executive Dan Hayes.

“I am sure the next quarter of a century will see us continue to develop and innovate and we will remain just as focused on caring for the older people in our communities as we were 25 years ago.”

Sponsored by the Sovereign Order of Malta and the Venerable Order of St John, OSJCT works with local authorities and other stakeholders to ensure that residents and employees live and work in a modern environment and benefit from the latest care aids, equipment and technology.
