Families and residents praise Anchor care homes in national survey

Anchor has been given the seal of approval after residents living in its care homes and their families rated the organisation above the national average in a survey on care services.

Residents scored Anchor’s services 897 out of 1,000 while their relatives rated the organisation 848 out of 1,000.

The Your Care Rating survey is the country’s largest and most authoritative survey of care home residents and their families and friends. More than 16,700 residents in 820 care homes across the UK took part while 12,000 relatives from 686 care homes responded to the survey.

Jane Ashcroft CBE, Chief Executive of Anchor said: “We are committed to high standards and being transparent and that is why we take part in the survey. Every care home resident, and their family and friends, should be able to speak up about their care and this is what the Your Care Rating survey does – it gives them a voice.”
