Orchard Care named awards finalist

Orchard Care Homes has been confirmed as a finalist in this year’s LaingBuisson Awards in the Residential Care (larger organisations) category.

The LaingBuisson Awards are the Oscars of health and social care. Now in their 14th year of recognising excellence, they are judged independently and objectively and focus on the people providing care as well as advisors.

The judging rounds will take place from 2 September until 27 September to allow the panel of judges time to scrutinise every finalist nomination carefully for each category, with the awards ceremony taking place on Wednesday 13 November 2019 at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London.

A spokesperson from LaingBuisson says: “This year has seen a record breaking number of nominations for every single category, with over 400 entries in total. The competition was extremely tough and decisions were very hard, but we are thrilled to announce the finalists and look forward to the awards evening.”

Tom Brookes, CEO at Orchard Care Homes, say: “I am delighted for Orchard Care Homes to be shortlisted as one of the finalists. Over the past 12 months, we have invested heavily in providing a range of meaningful activities for our residents in a warm and homely environment.

"In addition, we have provided training and career pathways for staff and introduced new technologies to ensure we provide the very best quality of care across all our homes. Our quality objectives for 2019/20 are designed to develop and promote the highest quality of care, which we believe is at the heart of everything we do.”
