Hallmark Care Homes has proudly supported Care Home Open Week for many years and whilst we did our best to virtually open our doors last year to members of the local community, there is no comparison to meeting our caring and committed teams in person. As ever, we are excited to dispel stereotypes, showing people that care homes are great places to live, visit and work.

Meet fascinating residents

We are proud to deliver care to over 1,250 residents at Hallmark Care Homes and many have fascinating stories to tell. Many of our residents have had amazing careers such a former James Bond girl, and footballer.

It might surprise you but many care homes across the country have a range of facilities including hairdressers, cafes, cinemas, music rooms, physiotherapy rooms and mini golf courses! We encourage families & members of the local community to regularly pop in for a coffee and join us for our events including BBQ’s, summer fetes and Christmas bazaars.

The clap for carers movement highlighted some of the amazing work our care teams do on a daily basis. By visiting our care homes in person, you can find out just how knowledgeable and caring our teams really are.

In addition to our wonderful carers, kitchen and housekeeping teams, we also have dedicated hospitality services managers, dementia care managers, and lifestyle leaders so you can be sure that whatever your care needs or questions are, our dedicated team can be there to support.
