A care home in Macclesfield is celebrating after being shortlisted for a prestigious national award.
The team at Care UK’s Hollins Park, on Victoria Road, is in the running for ‘North Care Home of the Year’ at this year’s Caring UK Awards.
The Caring UK Awards celebrate excellence and achievement by highlighting the outstanding contributions made by care home teams across the care sector in the UK.
Hollins Park has been praised for their person-centred care through the home’s use of holistic therapy, which provides one-to-one activities for residents including Namaste sessions which involve music therapy and sensory experiences.
Namaste care is designed specially to support people living with advanced dementia and seeks to engage people via their senses and emotions, and especially through the power of touch.
New residents receive a holistic assessment which helps to pair them up with team members who have similar interests and personalities to ensure they settle into the home with ease. Judges praised the home’s ‘Connecting with the Senses’ project which saw residents help team members to transform the garden. This project has had exceptional benefits for residents' wellbeing and encouraged more time outdoors.
The team also empowers residents to be as independent as possible, giving them opportunities to get involved with daily tasks at the home, should they wish to – from holding food taster sessions for residents to choose their favourite dishes to go onto the menu, to helping choose the colour of paint used within the home.
Tracy Norbury, Home Manager at Hollins Park, said: “We’re delighted to be shortlisted for ‘North Care Home of the Year’. Being nominated for this award showcases every team member’s commitment and all the hard work they put in every day to make Hollins Park a great place to live and work in.
“Here at Hollins Park, we work hard to ensure residents receive the highest quality of person-centred care, enabling them to lead fulfilling lives. Every single team member goes the extra mile for residents every day, and their determination to provide the highest possible standards of care never wavers.
“We look forward to seeing everyone at the awards ceremony later this year, and hope we come away as the winners!”
The Caring UK Awards ceremony will take place on 7th December at the Athena, in Leicester.
Hollins Park has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides full-time residential, nursing and dementia care, as well as short-term respite care.
