Residential and dementia care provider, Ideal Carehomes, has been named the winner in the Large Residential Care category in the Laing Buisson Awards 2022.
Laing Buisson is a leading intelligence provider for social care, healthcare and education businesses. With over 30 years’ experience, it provides healthcare market data to the UK Government’s Office for National Statistics.
Finalists in the Large Residential Care category were shortlisted earlier in the year, in recognition of their ‘excellence in residential or nursing care, with a focus on innovation and engagement with service users.’
Ideal Carehomes were commended for their ‘This is Me’ initiative which is designed to help teams find out more about residents’ lives and interests to build meaningful relationships. The initiative was ‘highlighted as exceptional’ by LaingBuisson judges.
The Large Residential Care Award was sponsored by Healthcare Property Consultants (HPC). Ian Wilkie, the Co-Owner of HPC said, ‘At HPC we recognise the huge contribution that larger providers make to social care in the UK and we were proud to sponsor the awards for the fifth year. Many congratulations to the team at Ideal Carehomes on their win, which reflects many years of hard work and tireless dedication.’
This announcement follows Ideal Carehomes third ‘Care Home Group’ award in a row from UK based review platform, carehome.co.uk.
Stacey Linn, the Managing Director at Ideal Carehomes, was delighted by the news. She said,
‘This is a huge achievement for our incredible teams. To win this award in such a competitive category, by an incredibly influential intelligence provider like Laing Buisson makes us extremely proud of the dedication and quality care our teams provide.
