Here at The Orchard, we have an outstanding, highly skilled and passionate care team. Being the manager, I have a qualified nursing background and lead the professional care team in providing the highest standards of tailored care.

The broad range of care types within our home means that The Orchard can deliver a truly dedicated and clear care pathway. It enables individuals to remain in one care placement, rather than having to relocate as their needs change.

The home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission and has ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation. We also work to the nationally accredited Gold Standard Framework in palliative care, ensuring the very highest standard of support during a person’s last days.

Good nutrition and hydration are an important part of staying well as we age. The Orchard is able to support people with a range of dietary requirements, including specialist diets. Our Home Chefs do their best to tempt even the smallest of appetites and sweet treats are always provided to celebrate special occasions!

Please give us a call to discuss how we can help support you or your loved one at our care home in St Albans, we look forward to welcoming you to The Orchard soon.
