Enriching Lives as a Not for Profit
Sanctuary Care is proud to be part of a not-for-profit housing and social care provider group, Sanctuary.
It’s at the heart of what we stand for – but what does not-for-profit really mean and how does it improve the care and wider services we provide across Sanctuary?
Being not-for-profit means that as a national housing and care provider, we are a registered, exempt charity, and any surplus income we get from the group, we continually reinvest to improve our existing housing and all the services we provide, as well as investing in the communities in which we operate and our care homes we have across England and Scotland. For Sanctuary Care this reinvestment may be on outstanding training so our teams can deliver the best quality care to our residents or improving the environments of our homes so our residents can truly thrive. But however, we decide to invest, none of our profit goes towards shareholders, but instead is invested in ways that it should be, which is all shaped around furthering our support to our residents and across all our communities.
From a Care perspective, everything we do and how we choose to reinvest is all underpinned by our mission of enriching lives – ensuring our residents, their families and our teams continually have a sense of:
- And Significance
But how are Sanctuary doing this?
Sanctuary are proud to be using our surplus income to invest in the latest technology to ensure our homes remain safe, while utilising technology to also enhance our high-quality standards of care – from eMAR, which is an electronic medication administration record system, to investing in state-of-the-art nurse call systems, as well as kradle, our very own care planning app, which has pioneered our bespoke, person-centred care delivered in our homes.
Not only that, we are also continually maintaining and improving the quality of our homes, so our residents are proud to call our homes just that, ‘home’. This can take the shape of on-going improvements and furnishings, to new garden rooms and facilities, and in some cases entire home refurbishments.
And finally, who makes us so special – our teams. Without our valued and committed teams, we wouldn’t be the provider we are today, nor could we truly enrich lives. And that’s why we invest in as many ways as we can to improve and grow the high-quality training services available to our teams. This means they will continue to learn the latest best practice and grow our vision to enrich residents' loved one's lives, while being the friendly face you see when visiting our homes.
