Care home providers Abbeyfield Society and Yorkare were among the winners at last week’s Pinders Healthcare Design Awards.
Abbeyfield was recognised for its innovative Winnersh dementia home in Berkshire, while Yorkare (pictured) were honoured for their Lindsey Hall Nursing Home in Lincolnshire.
Abbeyfield’s Head of Development for the East, and Winnersh Project Manager, James Parkhurst told Care Home Professional: “We were delighted to win this Pinders award and have our Winnersh development recognised in such a way.
“Whilst it is a great achievement for us to win an award that looks closely at our design, we are even prouder that the panel saw how our development will impact so positively upon the lives of our residents with dementia.”
Laurence Garton, Yorkare development director, said: “We’re all delighted to have won this year’s Best Regeneration Project at the Pinders Design Awards.
“The Pinders is recognised as the pinnacle of the health care design awards, and to receive this recognition is a fantastic ending to an innovative and, at times, challenging development.”
The £6m conversion of the former Lindsey Hall school included a first of its kind street scene and shopping arcade (see Yorkare £6m care home is streets ahead).
