Heather View won the award for the Best Dementia Interior Design at the second annual National Dementia Congress in Liverpool, this week.
Judges chose Heather View because they felt it demonstrated a real focus on community and local involvement, making the home a design for the future.
Sara Goodwin Project Manager said: “Care UK is working hard to understand how environments can benefit the lives of people with dementia. We are working with dementia experts to ensure that our homes are relaxing, yet stimulating, environments for our residents.
“We want people to be able to enjoy the lifestyle they want and we can see that happening at Heather View where families are meeting up and having lunch while grandchildren can play happily and safely on the village green whatever the weather.
“Residents are also regularly inviting friends over to the coffee shop and then going to see a film together at the home’s cinema. With this level of facilities, no one ever has to worry that living in a home is an end of their active social life, friendships or hobbies.”
As well as offering a beautiful environment, the home also offers excellent standards of care. Sara said: "Most of all, we offer genuinely person-centred care. All residents have their own key worker who is dedicated to understanding their likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests. That way we can create unique activity plans that help to keep someone with dementia happy, active and mobile."
