St Ives House is a newly-built, country house care home, offering specialist nursing, with residential and dementia care. The community development consists of St Ives House, a 60-bedroom care home with ensuite facilities, 24-hour care, themed lounges, bistro and a hair salon alongside St Ives Place, a collection of 14 one, two and three bedroom stylish apartments providing assisted living. There are also four three-bedroom country cottages.
Judging of the awards took place at the home on 20 February with representatives from DWA, Tooley and Foster and Pinders on the panel. A final presentation will take place on 14 March.
As a shortlisted finalist, Care South was awarded £500 to be donated to a charity of its choice. Care South nominated Lewis-Manning Hospice, based in Poole, which provides free care and support for local people at the end of life.
Susan Willoughby, chief executive at Care South, said, “We are thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Best Care Village category. At Care South, we are continually looking at ways to evolve and enhance the care we provide to our residents through providing them with high-quality facilities in a community atmosphere. Being nominated for a Pinders Healthcare Design Award recognises the hard work and dedication that goes into designing new homes for our residents and those who choose our assisted living properties.”
David James, corporate and community manager at Lewis-Manning Hospice, commented, “We would like to say a big thank you to Care South for the generous donation. It will make a real difference to Lewis-Manning Hospice; just £500 could provide a day’s worth of care for patients attending our Better Breathing Clinic. The Hospice is at the heart of the local community and we work hard to ensure patients can spend their last moments in comfort and peace, surrounded by their family. We wish Care South the very best of luck with this award.”
