Top Track 250

During the pandemic this care home operator has screened all new residents for Covid-19, enforced 14-day isolation periods if necessary, and restricted visits to exceptional circumstances. The company was set up in 1992 and is led by chief executive Pete Calveley, 59, a former police surgeon. It oversees more than 200 nursing homes caring for 11,000 people, and offers dementia care and assisted living, along with support for younger people with disabilities. Sales reached £657.6m last year, and the business opened three new care homes.
