Beginning with Amberley Hall in 2014, the company has grown year-on-year to become a group of five care homes for the elderly, located across East Anglia.
It is important to all at Athena that each of our private care homes is a comfortable environment with a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Each of our residential nursing homes is regulated and registered by the Care Quality Commission. We are proud to provide an outstanding standard of care.
As a group of person-centred care homes with family values at our very core, you can be confident in knowing that our family will care for yours.
Our mission is to provide care homes for the elderly which offer high quality dementia, nursing and residential care from the very best team members in a safe and comfortable setting.
Our residential nursing homes are managed by amazing and passionate people, including a home manager, designated clinical care leaders, and a hospitality services manager to keep everything running smoothly.
We hold our values close to our hearts, and ensure that team members throughout each of our residential nursing homes understand them and what importance they hold. We approach our care with Dignity, Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork and Creativity.
Sustainability and being conscious of our impact on the environment is really important to us. That's why we're working really hard to reduce our impact and be more sustainable in everything we do at our residential nursing homes.
Since December 2021 we have planted 5 trees for every resident who moves into our homes, we work with local suppliers and grow our own and we continuously investigate energy efficiency measures at all of our homes.
You can find more about our sustainability efforts in our brochure.
While the business has grown from one home to five, family values are still at the centre of everything we do. With Dignity, Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork and Creativity the five visions and values of the company, you can be confident knowing that our family will care for yours.
