Name: Anchor

Anchor has more than 40 years' experience of working with older people and providing residential care homes. Residential care homes provide a warm, safe and friendly environment, where people can maintain their independence if they wish, but have access to support when they need it. The aim of Anchor care homes is to maintain quality of life. Privacy and choice are high on the priority list and personal care is tailored to meet individual needs. 85% of homes are rated 'good' or 'excellent' by the Care Quality Commission. In addition, Anchor care homes have won national recognition for their catering. All menus offer residents freshly cooked, nutritious meals. The service offered in Anchor nursing homes is similar to residential care homes. Anchor nursing homes offer specialist care, supporting people with more complex nursing needs and dementia. Care is provided by registered nurses who give personal and practical support, such as help with dressing and bathing. Anchor dual registered homes offer both residential and nursing care.

Name: Open Britain

 This website aims to inspire visitors to Britain’s wonderful towns, cities, countryside and coast to find those memorable experiences which enhance our lives.

So many of us require extra assurance that our needs will be met - whether we are a young independent wheelchair user; a grandparent who is not as agile as they used to be and needs a ground floor room; one of the many people with a hearing or vision impairment; or a member of the deaf community. Finding information on accessible holidays or travel, which is often scattered in many different places, is a major barrier. This website aims to help overcome it.
