Larchwood care nominated for prestigious industry award


"I am very proud that the organisation has been shortlisted for the LaingBuisson Large Residential Care award. "
Lynn Fearn, managing director of Larchwood Care



To be shortlisted, entrants must display excellence in residential or nursing care for older people, with a focus on innovation and engagement with service users within a larger organisation.

The key drivers for the nomination were:

·         The way Larchwood Care supports staff with career progression and training

·         How Larchwood Care utilises technology and innovation to ensure the efficient running of the homes, with in-house tech products including Care Portal, the IMPaCT Audit system and the HowDidWeDo? feedback app

·         Improvements in regulatory body ratings in the last 4 years, including CQC scores rising from 41% Good or Outstanding overall to the current figure of 85% Good or Outstanding

Lynn Fearn, managing director of Larchwood Care, said: “I am very proud that the organisation has been shortlisted for the LaingBuisson Large Residential Care award. This is a very prestigious award and to have been shortlisted as a finalist from the many excellent applicants, is a major achievement in itself.

“As a care provider, we firmly believe that whatever an individual’s means, they deserve to be cared for in a dignified and respectful manner, to feel safe, and to receive that in as comfortable an environment as possible.

“I look forward to the awards being announced in due course, and would like to congratulate everyone at Larchwood Care for getting this far; without each and every member of staff being as dedicated as they are, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
