Colten Care is a family company, which was established in Lymington, Hampshire in 1989. We proudly own and operate all 19 of our care homes; nearly all of which were built by our sister company, Colten Developments. Having a building company within the Colten family ensures that each home is built and maintained to unconventionally high standards.
It is our firm belief that a well-structured, resourced and valued team of staff is key to providing the very best care home experience. Our policy is that all of our homes should be easily reached and regularly visited by our Home Support Team. In-home visits from the company directors and the heads of department including catering, activities, gardening, housekeeping and maintenance ensures that Colten Care home managers have the very-best support in providing beautifully appointed homes as well as the highest standards of care.
Colten Care is represented by a staff team of around 1,500 – which means each home employs many more staff than we have residents. In fact our home staffing levels are respected as being one of the very best in the business. No matter what your role within the business we all share a collective responsibility to invigorate our residents’ spirit of independence.
To ensure we consistently deliver this promise, we employ only the best candidates for each role who benefit from a comprehensive and ongoing training schedule. We are proud of the reputation we’ve built over the last 20 years, which we couldn’t have done without the help of many talented individuals.
