Lynwood Village and Care Centre in Sunninghill is in the running for another national award. Having already scooped the What House Award for Best Retirement Development in November 2015, and enjoyed a visit from HRH Princess Alexandra in September, Lynwood is now on the shortlist for the prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design Awards 2016 for Best Independent Living / Care Complex.
The Pinders judges visited Lynwood Village and Care Centre to see for themselves how its considered, clever design makes daily life easier in the Village and enables the highest quality care in the Care Centre. Designed by KWL Architects, Lynwood Village is a community that provides integrated care and independence, while promoting social inclusion and wellbeing. Residents enjoy easy social contact and support, well-designed homes and superb on-site facilities, bringing an end to the loneliness, isolation and worry experienced by so many older people.
Following their inspection, the Pinders judges presented BEN, the charity that owns and operates Lynwood Village and Care Centre, with a cheque for £500 in recognition of its success in making the shortlist. The donation will be put towards the creation of water features in the roof gardens for Lynwood Care Centre residents with dementia. Lynwood provides specialist, staged dementia care and is designed so that all residents have access to secure outside space, fresh air and sunshine.
The annual Pinders Healthcare Design Awards aim to promote and recognise the very best developments in all types of care-related property, acknowledging the contribution they make to improving quality of life and care for those who use them.
Graham Sweetinburgh, Sales and Marketing Manager for Lynwood Village, commented, “When you see the improvement in wellbeing Lynwood has on the people who move here, you know it’s a special place. Whether they are in the care centre or the village, the care and support provided here makes a massive, positive difference both to residents and their families. Winning the Pinders Award would be another affirmation of Lynwood’s success and we’re thrilled to be on the shortlist.”
The winners of the award will be announced on the 16th of March at the Lancaster Hotel in London.
