They are a very large company, I think they are based in New Zealand but they have hundreds of homes in Britain.
The quality of care in homes is always a worry - these days they are run as a profit making opportunity rather than a philanthropic concern. The good ones are outrageously expensive.
Mind you, council run homes weren't always great places - anyone remember Nye Bevan Lodge in Camberwell? The mismanagement and cruelty was such that it was closed down.
this is also a subject dear to my heart, as I'm probably going to end up in one!
