|About||B&M Care provides private residential and dementia care for older people in and around the Home Counties.|
On 12th September 1975, B&M Care Chairman Bill Hughes took the keys to his first care home in St Albans. Clare Lodge was licensed for a fee of just £1 with the commissioning authorities at the time and the care of the ten residents living there was handed over to Bill Hughes. “I was only 34 years of age, a new father and I just didn’t know if this was going to work out. I was scared about embarking on a new journey but I believed I had the right values and determination to make a home for these vulnerable people”.
Forty-one years on and those 10 residents have multiplied to 1,200 with the opening of B&M Care’s 23rd home, Bury Lodge in Beaconsfield, in 2015. With the addition of new homes being constructed in Crowthorne, Berkshire, as well as Hoddesdon, Kings Langley and Henley, B&M Care are set to grow to 27 care homes by 2020.
This 42-year-old Hertfordshire-based company is a success story that will continue to offer worthwhile careers and improve the lives of older people and people who live with a dementia for many years to come.
