Meridian Healthcare’s August Court has been shortlisted for the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards 2017.
As part of their recognition, the home was presented with a £500 cheque for their nominated charity, the HC-One Foundation.
Kelly Greensmith, Meridian Healthcare’s assistant director, commented: “Augustus Court is one of our premiere collection of care homes and enables our residents to receive high quality care within luxurious surroundings.
“The home is stylish and elegant and was designed to be tailored to the needs of residents, so we are really pleased that we have been recognised and shortlisted for this award.”
As part of the awards process, judges visited Augustus Court and were able to see the building’s extensive quality facilities; as well as talk to staff, residents and the home’s designers QuadrantABS Limited.
Augustus Court is among a shortlist of three care establishments shortlisted for the prize.
QuadrantABS Limited, Augustus Court’s designers, added: “We are delighted to secure our fifth consecutive shortlist.”
Architectural standards and innovation will be key factors in the awards, but judges will also recognise the important contribution made by the owners of care homes, as well as the quality of all design.
