Rico at Holly Lodge tells us why Forest Care is so special; “We’re like one big family. You can see that everyone who works for Forest Care really cares.”
Recognising and supporting our talented staff, we will nominate hard workers for regional and national care awards. We’re proud to say that each of our care homes are award-winning.
We support our staff in their personal endeavours to fund raise for charity. Whether it’s sky-diving, running a marathon or baking cakes… our homes will offer their support.
Every year our care homes host a Summer and Winter fayre, these are a great chance to bring your families to work and have a fun day together.

Rowan Lodge has excellent management and we work as a team to meet the needs of our residents and attend promptly to their families and friends.
I have worked in a number of homes in the past and must say, I have never worked in a home with a better team working together attitude. The home is well lead with a very positive and welcoming feeling throughout.
I can’t praise enough the way Oak Lodge is run. Grace is an incredible leader and manages the home very well. The staff are very hard working and caring.
