Orders of St John Care Trust
The Orders of St John Care Trust’s vision is to be a leading care provider, creating places where people love to live and work. The Trust provides high quality person-centred care and support to older people of any background, irrespective of race or religion. The Trust was established in Lincolnshire in 1991, running former local authority care homes. The Trust now supports over 3,500 people to age well in 68 care homes, across four counties (15 in Lincolnshire, 18 in Wiltshire, 17 in Oxfordshire and 18 in Gloucestershire) as well as eight extra care schemes. The Trust’s greatest resource is its 4,000 highly valued employees.
The Trust has developed considerable specialism in the care of people with dementia, supported by St John Admiral Nurses employed by the Trust. Our range of services includes residential, nursing and intermediate care. We also provide extra care housing, respite and day services.
OSJCT is currently involved in a development programme, working in partnership with local authorities and other stakeholders to replace old stock and develop new homes that ensure residents and employees can live and work in a modern home benefiting from the latest support aids, equipment and technology. We aspire to extend our operation to encompass a greater range of independent living options which will enable people to age well in an environment of their choice. We are committed to providing the best possible training opportunities for our employees to enhance their career progression and personal development.
We work right across the community and provide care regardless of the level or nature of an individual’s religious observance. In doing so, our care recognises people’s differences as well as their similarities.
