Anchor’s care homes

With over 100 care homes throughout the country offering a range of residential and dementia care, Anchor is an established and trusted care home provider. The buildings, staff and policies that govern our work all meet levels of quality that are amongst the highest in the field and all of our homes are regulated by the Care Quality Commission.

Our mission is to provide the right type of care, for the right person, in the right location. Privacy and choice are high on our priority list and our support is always personally tailored to meet individual needs. 

Anchor’s not-for-profit status means we continually invest in our services, making Buckingham Lodge surprisingly affordable for additional peace of mind.

Our dedicated service, combined with Buckingham Lodge’s luxurious environment and facilities, allow our residents to live a full, rich and meaningful life in the company of supportive, like-minded people.
