RESIDENTS and staff at a Coventry care home are celebrating after winning a prestigious Care Provider of the Year award.
The team at Trinity Lodge care home in Binley, part of Anchor Hanover, took the title at the LaingBuisson Awards which recognise health and social care excellence in the public, private and third sectors.
The LaingBuisson Awards honour and celebrate industry excellence in the UK health and social care services within public, private and third sectors.
Anchor Hanover, England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for people in later life, was praised for its older people provision and its innovation and engagement with residents. This is the second consecutive year Anchor Hanover has received the accolade.
The judges also cited Anchor Hanover’s use of Memoride, a virtual cycling platform for older people, as a key factor in their decision.
They said: “The Memoride, a pedal exerciser which generates an image of a town onto a screen using Google Maps, is simple yet effective to taking people ‘out.’
“The business outcome and service users outcome is remarkable.”
Anchor Hanover’s Director of Care Quality, Cath Holmes said: “The last year has been a challenging time for everyone and our colleagues have worked tirelessly to ensure residents continue to receive the highest levels of care throughout the pandemic, so we are delighted that their work has been recognised.”
