We are a not-for-profit charitable Trust where people love to live and work.
OSJCT is one of the UK’s leading not-for-profit care organisations working solely to provide high quality care for older people.
Our care is underpinned by the ethos of our sponsoring Orders, The Sovereign and Hospitaller Order of Malta and The Venerable Order of St John of Jerusalem.
Drawing on their 1000 year history of care, they nominate volunteer Trustees to help to ensure the quality of our care runs through everything we do.
“Your wellbeing lies at the heart of everything we do, and this is why we all do what we do every day.” Dan Hayes, CEO.
Who & Where?
We provide reputable trusted care, support and housing to residents and tenants across 70 homes and 14 accommodation schemes across Gloucestershire, Lincolnshire, Oxfordshire, Suffolk, West Sussex and Wiltshire.
Our offering to the elderly includes specialised dementia, intermediate, respite, day care and expert nursing. We were among the first care providers to employ its own specialist Admiral Nurses.
The Trust employs approximately 4,800 staff and assists more than 3,500 residents.
As a not-for-profit charitable Trust financial surplus is reinvested for the benefit of the residents.
Why and What?
Those who come through our doors are at the heart of everything we do and their well-being is paramount.
We pride ourselves on delivering care to the highest standards and truly believe in person-centred care. This equates to learning as much as possible about each individual to deliver tailored care and support to meet particular needs and preferences. An atmosphere of warmth, harmony and understanding along with a consideration for the need for privacy, respect of dignity and freedom of choice are integral to the life and atmosphere we create.
OSJCT is dedicated to people. Everything we do reflects our caring ethos, from our recruitment practices through to the care we deliver each and every day to the people living in our homes and extra care housing schemes or visiting our day care centres.
This excellent care and high-quality service has been accredited by the National Care Forum, through its "Quality First" framework. We partner with local authorities, industry voices, academics, leading clinicians and commissioning groups.
Training, innovative practices and state of the art care delivery enable us to remain at the forefront of the sector as we recognise, review and value the evolving requirements and expectations of those living and working with us.
Meaningful interactive and engaging activities and events, destination areas and stimulating home-life environments contribute to a natural way of living and reduce greatly the use of anti-psychotic drugs wherever possible.
