One resident at the home said: “It was really nice seeing everyone come together to celebrate such a landmark anniversary.
"The music was so invigorating and it was lovely watching everyone get involved with tambourines and maracas.”
Barchester Healthcare was founded in 1992 by Mike Parsons after discovering from his own personal experience just how difficult it was to find a good quality care home for two relatives in need of nursing care. With aims to create a better alternative, he bought Moreton Hill, a 17th century farm that he converted into a unique care home.
Twenty-five years on, Barchester is one of the top care providers in the UK, caring for more than 10,000 residents across the country.
