About the Home
The Hope is a 57-bed care home in central Cambridge. Established in 1940 by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Bordeaux, the home originally functioned as a small hospital. In 1989 it was extended and refurbished to provide residential and nursing care to older people. In 1999 the Sisters sought the assistance of the Healthcare Management Trust to develop and manage the home. Our building has grown over time to provide an interesting space for residents.

The Hope aims to create a sense of family and belonging within the home. The resident care is amongst the highest available and comments we hear from our residents make us proud.
