We had a double cause for celebration, following Applegarth’s CQC ‘Outstanding’ rating and their recent 30th birthday. 

On Tuesday 28th January, staff and residents at the Applegarth home, the leadership team and Trustee Paul Ryb gathered together to mark the occasion with lots of tea and cake!

Emma Hopper, the Registered Manager of Applegarth said: “Our Applegarth home has grown both in terms of staff and the number of people it supports, enabling them to continue doing the things they want to do and we are so proud of our Outstanding rating.”

Emma added: “It was great to spend the afternoon with so many members of staff and residents from the home. Over the past 30 years, I’ve had the delight of getting to know them all. And, we remain committed to providing the highest quality of care for adults affected by visual impairment and learning disabilities.”
