“Leaving my husband is often very difficult and emotional but I know that I leave him in the care of the most wonderful people. I have no words to express my thanks and heartfelt feeling towards the team at Thames House” – that’s what one relative told us in a recent survey. It’s fantastic to know that the care provided at Thames House, which is for younger adults with complex physical disabilities, Huntington’s disease and neurological disorders, is appreciated so much.
Would you like to be part of the team that such praise from relatives of service users? If the answer is a resounding yes, then maybe you should consider moving to Thames House

Exemplar started life as a training company, helping a care home operator get to grips with an ever-increasing regulatory burden. We helped co-ordinate nursing adaptation courses for overseas nurses too.
Having all this knowledge at our fingertips, we quickly moved into care home operation, taking over 5 elderly care homes in need of some tlc. We still have these homes and they form the bedrock on which the rest has been built.
