15 Aug Celebrating 20 years of delivering exceptional care in Torbay
Our sister home Mount Olivet Nursing Home, is celebrating its 20th anniversary!
Mount Olivet and Kingsmount Residential Home are owned by GrayAreas Ltd. The company was created in 2002 when husband and wife team Robert and Cherry Gray relocated to Paignton with their daughter Tori to take over Mount Olivet.
After investing in the home’s infrastructure, equipment and staff working conditions, Mount Olivet soon became widely considered the most highly regarded care home in Torbay.
In 2004, seeing a need for residential dementia care in the area, the Gray’s purchased Kingsmount Residential Home. Tori joined the family business in 2009 and later took over as Managing Director after Robert and Cherry passed away.
Despite a tumultuous few years in the care sector, our two homes now employ over 90 staff and have a track record of delivering exceptional care. Key to each home’s success has been our staff retention record – 40% of the team has been with us for over five years, with several clocking up 10 or more years of service.
Earlier this year, GrayAreas became a Real Living Wage employer and, to commemorate our anniversary, paid every employee a £20 bonus per year of employment.
The last few years have been particularly hard for our residents and staff at Kingsmount and Mount Olivet. However, we are pleased to be coming out of the other side, and our milestone anniversary celebrations will be even more special.
Our success is down to our team members who provide excellent care to our residents. We are extremely proud of our staff retention record and look forward to celebrating with them this year. Our commemorations include parties for our residents, families and staff and sponsorship of the Devon Women in Business Awards.
