Local Care Home Wins prestigious Industry Award!

Date of news/blog: 27th September 2018

Pine Martin Grange Care Home in Wareham, Dorset part of Mayflower Care Communities has been confirmed as the winner of the prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design Award 2018 in the ‘Best New Elderly Care Home Category’. The Pinders Healthcare Design Awards are an important part of the care industry as they seek to recognise and reward quality of care through the quality of design. Although innovation and architecture play a fundamental role in being shortlisted for a Pinders Award, it is more important that the design of the home reflects and meets the needs and desires of our residents. We are proud that through working to our vision of creating happy yet luxurious care homes, Pinders have recognised our ambitions.

Award categories such as the ‘Best New Home’, recognise the contributions of the people who have helped to make Pine Martin Grange a place that promotes well-being and the very best quality of life for our residents. The architects who planned and designed our home, Harris Irwin Architects, allowed our home to feel open and spacious yet connected. Peaceful terraces on the first floor to enjoy on a warm summer’s evening are balanced with indoor communal social areas and facilities, including our on-site beauty salon and HUR gym. As well as creating a community atmosphere throughout our home, we also wanted to recognise the benefit of sometimes spending time alone. So with our relaxing jacuzzi baths and beautifully landscaped gardens, a moment of repose is never far away.

As a result of reaching the final Pine Martin Grange received a donation of £500 from Pinders to pass on to a local charity of their choice with the recipient being Dementia Friendly Purbeck. Tim Lench from Dementia Friendly Purbeck said “ we are very grateful for this fantastic donation and congratulations to Pine Martin for the much deserved recognition in winning this award”.

Louise Hedley, the Registered Manager of Pine Martin said “ultimately we believe that the happiness of our residents in all areas of the Home is the result of architectural innovation, specialist interior design and the person-centred care provided by committed care staff. Once again we feel very privileged to win this award and hope that through continued hard work and support from the friends and relatives of our residents, we can keep progressing and promoting the best care possible.
