St John’s is renowned for its quality almshouse provision and its care services have been rated by the Care Quality Commission as ‘good’ overall.
We currently have four almshouses, providing more than 90 individual apartments. These almshouses are positioned across two sites in Bath; one in the city centre opposite the Thermae Spa, the other at Combe Park, located adjacent to the RUH.
All our almshouse apartments have been thoughtfully re-modelled to make them fit for 21st century living, giving our residents state-of-the-art, quality accommodation.
We are always looking to improve the services we offer and will continue to do so as we look to replicate our service in different environments in the future.
All of our buildings are maintained by our own in-house facilities team, who carry out tasks on a daily basis, including maintenance requests from our residents (repairs, lifting and moving, carpentry etc.) and regular general upkeep of the fabric of the building.
