About Us

Marches Care Ltd is a specialised care provider with 30 years pedigree. It is proudly family owned, but also a nationally recognised care organisation. The company is managed by Mandy Thorn MBE.

The Uplands is a Gold Standard Framework commended home for end of life care, nationally recognised as a quality provider of nursing and specialist dementia care. We provide both nursing and nursing with dementia, as well as providing a a dedicated Day Resource Centre.

The management and staff of The Uplands have worked hard to ensure that the reputation for quality care continues and we are proud that The Uplands is recognised by the Care Quality Commission as fully compliant (good in all domains). 

We moved to the newly built Uplands in June 2007, allowing us to enhance our range of services and provide these in the most appropriate purpose-built environment. 

Here our residents live well together, sharing some communal space, time and the company of other adults, but enjoying the privacy of single bedrooms with en suite bathroom facilities. All the rooms are light, airy and well-equipped, and some even have their own patios. In partnership with local statutory health and social care colleagues, The Uplands also provides short term rehabilitation care and accommodation which supports the diagnosis and treatment of some long term conditions.

The Uplands occupies a large, well-positioned site with plenty of parking and access to informal gardens where residents can enjoy walking and the stunning views across to the Shropshire Hills and beyond.

The Uplands has a number of senior staff who hold care management qualifications, including the Managing Director Mandy Thorn MBE, who has the NVQ IV in care management. Carey Bloomer RGN, our Nursing Director has a level IV qualification in Leadership and Management. Other management staff hold appropriate non-clinical qualifications in administration.
