Heather View care home wins prestigious national care award

November 3rd 2011

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."

Our Heather View care home has 74 spacious rooms, all with 24-hour nurse call systems, en-suite facilities, TVs and electronically adjustable beds. We get to know all of our residents so we can ensure that we create a care plan that is perfectly suited to their needs, including any hobbies or interests that we can help them take part in. Heather View is a real home from home, with a shop, tearoom, library, cinema and hair salon. These are set around an indoor village green, which is a popular spot for our residents to spend time. Our beautiful gardens enable residents to spend time outdoors, playing games or relaxing taking in the stunning surroundings.
