A Berkhamsted-based luxury all-inclusive care home provider with twelve homes across England has been named a top care home group in the annual carehome.co.uk Care Home Group Awards 2024.

Berkley Care Group has been listed as one of the Top 20 Mid-sized (containing 10 to 19 homes) Care Home Groups across the UK, based on reviews from residents, service users, and family and friends of those in care.

Carehome.co.uk is a platform where residents and their loved ones can give ratings and reviews to care homes for the public to view. Berkley Care Group, with more than 1,000 individual reviews, ranks 9.8 out of 10 on carehome.co.uk’s ‘Group Review Score’, a testament to its success in delivering quality care to its residents.

This is the second consecutive year that Berkley has been ranked in the Top 20 Mid-sized Care Home Groups, having also been awarded a place in the Top Small-sized Care Home Group category between 2019 and 2021. Since then, the business has expanded its portfolio from six to 12 care homes, and their ability to consistently deliver high-quality care is reflected by these awards.

One of Berkley’s homes, Blenheim House, has been listed as one of the Top 20 Care Homes in the South West of England this year. The Melksham-based home boasts a perfect 10 out of 10 on the ‘Group Review Score’. The most recent review of Blenheim House, from a respite resident, proves a great reflection of its ability to deliver the best-possible care to those who need it:

“Nobody could have had more care and attention than I had during my stay here – about 2 months. I am so grateful to everybody.”

Another recent review, from Leicester-based care home Cedar Mews, again reflects Berkley’s commitment to quality care across all of its homes:

“The greatest asset a company can have is its staff. Well in Cedar Mews this asset is worth its weight in gold. Cedar Mews staff and management are very friendly, extremely patient, efficient and kind. I cannot emphasize enough how excellent all the staff and management are. I am so lucky to have found a home that takes such great care of my mum.”

Commenting on the achievement, Laura Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of Berkley Care Group, said:

“We are immensely proud to be awarded one of the Top 20 Mid-sized Care Home Groups in the country once again. At the heart of our work is, of course, our residents, and we are immeasurably happy to receive an award that is judged on the feedback of residents themselves, their families and their friends.

At Berkley, we believe in creating a community within each of our care homes – among both staff and residents – where everyone feels valued, dignified, and taken care of. We look forward to continuing in this mission.”
