Valerie Manor in Steyning, West Sussex (pictured) has been voted the best individual care home in the 2019 Care Home Awards. It is joined at the head of the pack by Manor Lodge (Care UK), which took the top honours in the category of ‘Best single care home in a group’ and The Albert Suites, LifeCare Residences, which came away with the prize for ‘Best new care home’.
The winners were revealed at the glittering awards ceremony held during this year’s Residential and Home Care show, in London, yesterday (27 June). New and familiar faces from the care home world were on hand to congratulate the homes for their excellence in practice and their well-deserved wins. One of the judges, Ailsa Colquhoun, editor of Care Home Management magazine, said: “The standards really were very high this year. It is great to see care homes deliver such great care.”
As well as the categories for individual care homes, the awards include categories for best care home group, and for specialist activities such as nursing care, care of young people, and special needs care. Equipment, product or product service suppliers such as OMI Mobi Interactive table/floor and Bidfood also took top honours in the best supplier awards.
Further information on the winning homes and suppliers will be published in the Care Home Awards 2019 Winners book, which will be distributed free to subscribers of Care Home Management magazine’s July issue, out in the first week of July.
