Leicestershire care home provider hailed one of the top 1000 companies to inspire Britain

Family-run, award winning Adept Care Homes, which owns Moat House in Burbage, has been recognised in the 2020 London Stock Exchange’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’.

The report is a celebration of the fastest growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) in the UK.

Dave Lock, managing director of Adept Care Homes, said: “We are entering our 35th year as a care home operator and this accolade is a great way to celebrate, recognising just how far we have come since we bought our first home in 1986. To be held up as an inspiration to others is fantastic, a testament to our reputation as a provider of quality residential and dementia care, dedicated care teams and engaging social programmes.”

He added that, since founding the company, he had always ensured that each home was somewhere he would be happy for his parents to live in. “My dad lives at one of our care homes in Leicestershire. I am so pleased, from a relative’s perspective, that he is comfortable and happy. The compassion and dedication of our team that I see first-hand has reinforced my pride in what we do making sure our homes are a superb place to live or work.”

Adept Care Homes owns seven care homes across the Midlands with its 8th home opening its doors in January 2021. The group promotes independence and respect, choice, privacy and dignity within its bespoke care plans, and uses a pioneering dementia approach to ensure residents retain their freedom by subtly stimulating social interaction. It values aptitude as much as qualifications when recruiting, providing on-going personal development for their team.

Moat House is Measuring Up The Competition.

Residents at family-run Moat House Care Home are rolling up their sleeves to take part in a sunflower growing gardening competition where they hope to win up to £100 for the care home’s residents social fund.

“We have had a lot of fun, tending to our sunflowers for the competition, We even sing to them. I’ve always loved getting out in the garden, it really is a passion of mine. The competition whilst a bit of fun, would be fantastic to win, a great team effort!” explained Peter Stowe, a resident gardener at Moat House.

Moat House Care Home invites residents of all gardening experience and ability to join the Gardening Club which is led by their groundskeeper, Richard Mee who provides residents with monthly expert gardening tips and advice. Richard is responsible for maintaining the beautiful gardens at Moat House “It’s so lovely to spend time with the residents, they are so passionate about the gardens and what we grow, from onions, beetroots to runner beans and so much more but everything is grown with love, and the sunflower competition is one of their favourites and this year we may have even broken some records.” Said Richard

“I’m quietly confident but I am also happy to take part and will water my sunflower every day with love. Wish us luck!” added fellow resident gardener Maureen.
