Local Care Home group wins national Care Provider of the Year Award

RESIDENTS and the Care Team, at Thomas Henshaw Court Care Home, in Southport, which is part of Anchor Hanover, are celebrating after the group won Large Residential Care Provider of the Year at the Laing Buisson Awards last week. The Laing Buisson Awards honour and celebrate industry excellence in the UK health and social care services within public, private and 3rd sectors. Anchor Hanover, England's largest not for profit provider of housing and care for people in later life, was recognised nationally for its excellence in providing residential care for older people and its focus on innovation and engagement with residents. This is the second consecutive year Anchor Hanover has received the accolade.

The judges cited Anchor Hanover's use of Memoride, a virtual cycling platform for older people, in their decision. They said:- "The Memoride, a pedal exerciser which generates an image of a Town onto a screen using Google Maps, is simple yet effective to taking people 'out.' The business outcome and service users outcome is remarkable."

Anchor Hanover's Director of Care Quality, Cath Holmes said:- "We are absolutely delighted to have won the Laing Buisson Large Residential Care Provider of the year award. The last year has been a challenging time for everyone and our colleagues have worked tirelessly to ensure residents continue to receive the highest levels of care throughout the Pandemic, so we are delighted that their work has been recognised."

Apex takes St Joseph's Hospice lottery on the road

APEX Management Solutions is throwing its weight behind St Joseph's Hospice's latest lottery fundraising initiative, the Hit The Jackpot Appeal, by advertising it across its entire fleet of minibuses. The leading Liverpool based transport company unveiled the new branding at the Hospice this week, which is aiming to reach 10,000 members through its latest lottery appeal.

Zoe Furnivall, fundraiser at St. Joseph's Hospice, explained:- "At St Joseph's Hospice, we provide end of life care, comfort and compassion to over 200 people every year. As a charity, we need to raise ₤3 million a year to continue providing this care but we have ambitions far beyond this as we hope to be able to care for even more people in the future. Playing our lottery is one of THE best ways of supporting the Hospice because it provides us with a regular income which enables us to plan and budget for the future as well as provide Hospice care for our community right now. We're incredibly grateful to Apex who are helping us raise awareness of this brilliant initiative through advertising on all of their minibuses; this really does help drive the cause in our bid to realise our ambitious target and we'd like to thank Stephen and the team!"

Apex Management Solutions deliver services across Liverpool and Sefton, for public and private sector clients. Stephen Heneghan, Managing Director of Apex Management Solutions added:- "Working across Sefton and employing local people, we have become very aware of the Hospice and the vital care it offers. Following discussions with the Hospice, we wanted to explore ways in which we could have a tangible and meaningful impact on their fundraisings efforts and what better way than through our fleet! Over the next few weeks, all of our vehicles will have the lottery signage emblazoned on the rear which will hopefully help boost the wider fundraising efforts."
