Viva la Vida – provider named UK’s best

Vida Healthcare has been named the UK’s leading care provider at the Great British Care Awards.

Now boasting three homes, the provider, which specialises in dementia care, was presented with the ‘Care Employer Award’ at the event on Friday 18 March, which took place at the ICC in Birmingham. Organisers found that Vida had demonstrated a sustained track record of delivering good quality care, set an example of leadership best practice, showed a willingness to change to meet new priorities, and was committed to providing learning and development activities.

Vida Healthcare managing director James Rycroft said: “Staff and carers are the lifeblood of the social care sector, and without their hard work and dedication we simply wouldn’t be able to deliver the care that is needed by vulnerable people across the UK. We couldn’t have won this award without them and I’m eternally grateful for the ongoing commitment of everyone at Vida to provide the best possible care to our residents.

“We’ve put in place a range of initiatives to ensure we provide the same level of support to our staff as they show to our residents. From our staff summer party which will be happening later this year, to our specialist training platform, Vida Academy, which promotes lifelong learning across the organisation and establishes staff as dementia ambassadors, we’re always trying to think of new ways to support staff.”

Vida Healthcare opened its third home, Vida Court, in Harrogate, in January. The new home (which we covered in the January issue of The Care Home Environment) specialises in caring for residents living with dementia, and includes a cinema, florist, and coffee shop.
