    Hi

    Wondering if any of you have had any dealings with a company called Hallmark Care Homes.

    Mum has been recommended one of their homes near King's Lynn - looks very nice, it's part of a large chain (never knew such things existed)...it's for respite care initially but if Dad does deteriorate to the extent that he needs constant care then...:(

    I don't think chains are that uncommon actually. Homes are big business like eveything else these days. BUPA actually operate quite a few homes.

    The home my mum is in belongs to a chain, of sorts, that also operate schemes for other client groups eg younger adults with learning difficulties. I believe it is a registered charity.

    Nada, for future reference, is it acceptable to say "If anyone knows anything about XYZ Home, could they PM me"?
