Today B&M Care can be described as a ‘family run business for families’. Bill Hughes is very hands on and not averse to still rolling up his sleeves to landscape the gardens of B&M homes and offering personal support and guidance to his home managers. His daughter, Dr Colleen Wood is a Company Director and Clinical Adviser and son Brendan plays a supportive role with various projects. The ‘for families’ ethos is directed at the residents and families that choose a B&M Care home. Their aim is simple: to make every moment count for a person living with a dementia and their families. Residents, families and staff at B&M Care homes in 2015 joined a year-long programme of celebrations for the 40th Anniversary. Homes hosted anything from Garden Parties, BBQs, Street Parties and Car Shows to Vintage Fairs, and Bill Hughes and his family have attended every event, cut many cakes and planted numerous commemorative trees. “It’s been exhausting but great fun” said Bill Hughes “the staff and residents have really put on some lovely events and I am enormously proud of them all”. Bill Hughes has published a book that tells the story of B&M Care, and also touches upon his passion for vintage and classic cars. The Ashlyns Hall Car Show on the first weekend of August every year, started off in the 1990s with just a handful of his car enthusiast friends and this year saw around 300 cars over the course of the day. This 40 year old Hertfordshire based company is a success story that will continue to offer worthwhile careers and improve the lives of older people and people who live with a dementia for many years to come.
