About FBC Care Homes in Retford

FBC Care Homes Limited was formed in 1996 after being a family run partnership since 1989. The FBC group consists of two homes: Cherry Holt and Branthwaite.

The group commenced operations with Branthwaite residential home which opened in 1990 as a nine bedded residential home. Our home from home philosophy and strategy to focus explicitly on the needs and expectations of our service users proved to be a success and a twelve bedroom extension was added in 1994.

1996 saw the opening of Cherry Holt as a purpose built 40 bedded dual registered home for residential and nursing care, which allowed us to expand our underpinning methodologies which we believe has contributed to providing quality care for our service users. Cherry Holt expanded its facilities to accommodate a further twelve service users in 2001.

2010 saw the opening of the new purpose-built Branthwaite Care Home to accommodate 40 residents. The new state of the art building includes en-suite single bedrooms with an individual shower in the en-suite. An exclusive activities room is available for residents to carry out organised activities such as arts and crafts and games. The staff training room is also located at Branthwaite where staff from the FBC group are trained in all areas of Health and Social care.

FBC Care Homes were purchased by Knights Care Ltd in May 2022.

Knights Care Ltd was founded in 2006 and is owned and operated by Adam Knights who has worked within the independent care home sector since 2001. Knights Care Ltd have five care homes across the subsequent locations: Staffordshire, Teesside &  Lincolnshire, with our Head office situated in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.

We offer a family run service that is passionate about positively influencing the lives of those we care for, so we strive to provide care that is flexible, attentive, and respectful; thus ensuring clients maintain as much of their independence, privacy and dignity as possible. At each of our homes we strive to provide an outstanding level of care to every single person who has entrusted their future to us. We believe in a personal and individual service so that is why at Knights Care we are willing to go that extra mile in order to improve and sustain the overall quality of life of our residents.
