Anchor's Silk Court Care Home in Bethnal Green received even more praise this week from an unexpected source.  

Having been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ classification by the regulator CQC, a letter arrived from the Department of Health congratulating the Home Manager Marcia Forsyth and her team on achieving the distinction. 

The letter written by Jeremy Hunt MP said: "I am writing to congratulate you and your team on the exceptional quality of care at Silk Court Care Home…"

Marcia commented: "Obviously it is very flattering to receive such high praise from the Secretary of State. I am so proud of the team here and the work they have done to achieve this distinction - long may it continue."

Marcia is pictured with 94-year-old Betty Gilbert, who has been a resident at Silk Court since 2013. Says Betty: “It was no surprise to me that Silk Court was classed as outstanding. I love living here because you get loving care’.
