Caring Homes flagship shortlisted for healthcare design award

Caring Homes is delighted that the company’s flagship home in Thames Ditton, Surrey, has been shortlisted for a prestigious national healthcare design award.

Home of Compassion is an impressive Grade II* mansion which has been restored and extended to create an extremely comfortable, modern care home offering residential, nursing and specialist dementia care to residents.

Judges from the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards visited the home which is one of the finalists in the ‘Best Redevelopment of a Care Home’ category for 2017.

The judges – a director from Pinders, an architect and a former Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspector – spent the morning at Home of Compassion last week, touring the building and talking to staff. They were accompanied by Home of Compassion Deputy Manager Denise McMillan, Caring Homes Founding Director Helena Jeffery, Construction Manager Kevin Coleman, Architect David Tibbs, Senior Operations Director Julie Mason, Regional Manager Sally Lorch and Business Development Executive Caroline Heath.

A charitable donation of £500 was also given to Caring Homes from Pinders to mark the coveted place in the final and this will be given to Macmillan which Caring Homes is currently  proud to be supporting.

The Pinders Healthcare Design Awards aim to promote and recognise the very best developments in all types of care-related property and to acknowledge the contribution made by home owners, designers and architects to the wellbeing and quality of life for those in their care.

Whilst architectural standards and innovation are key factors, the overriding test for any project is the degree to which it has recognised the needs and desires of the residents and incorporated these into the final design.

The awards winners will be announced at a lunch event at The Lancaster London Hotel on March 15th.
