Two new Caring Homes residencies shortlisted for design awards

Caring Homes is delighted to announce that two of its newest care homes have been shortlisted for a prestigious national healthcare design award.

Riverside Place in Ware is a finalist in the Best New Care Home (higher development budget) category in the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards and Blenheim Court in Liss is a finalist in the Best New Care Home (medium development budget) category.

At Riverside Place, a brand new, state-of-the-art nursing home in Ware, Hertfordshire, our skilled, experienced team delivers the best in residential, nursing and dementia care, as well as respite and convalescent care, for up to 72 residents.

Blenheim Court Care Home is situated in the beautiful village of Liss, Hampshire and provides luxurious accommodation for 60 people specialising in the provision of outstanding nursing, residential and dementia care within its beautiful modern facilities.

Caring Homes Managing Director Tracey Fletcher-Ray said; “We are delighted to have been shortlisted in two categories for the prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design Awards this year.

“At Caring Homes we pride ourselves on providing exceptional care in the best possible surroundings with a focus on person centred care, clinical excellence and family values. To have two of our newest care homes recognised within the care industry in this way is fantastic.”

Riverside Place and Blenheim Court are both part of Caring Homes which is celebrating 25 years in the care home industry in 2019 after starting out with one care home in 1994.

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.

A charitable donation of £500 for each shortlisted entry will also be given to Caring Homes from Pinders to mark the coveted place in the final and these will be given to the Care Workers Charity and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

The awards winners will be announced at a lunch event at The Royal Lancaster London Hotel on March 13th.
