McCarthy and Stone’s Lambrook Court development on Gloucester Road in Bath has been named as a regional bronze award winner, in the Elderly Accommodation Counsel Awards 2019.
The Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC) is a national charity that assists older people when it comes to meeting their current and anticipated housing and support needs.
Now in their eighth year, the EAC awards celebrate the best specialist housing for older people, and aim to help shape the future of housing in later life.
Customers, staff, visitors and volunteers were able to vote for their favourite scheme out of the 1,220 nominated between 15th November 2018 and 28th February 2019, and with 19,000 votes now cast, the EAC has now revealed its regional winners.
Carrie-Anne Palmer Estates Manager at Lambrook Court, said: “We’re all thrilled that Lambrook Court has beaten-off competition from elsewhere in the South to receive one of the top accolades at this year’s EAC Awards.
“This achievement is testament to the commitment of the team at Lambrook Court who make it their personal mission to enrich the lives of every individual customer.
“We’re so pleased to hear customers are living their retirement years to the full at Lambrook Court, and that they are benefiting from the development’s facilities.
“There is a close-knit community of like-minded retirees at the development, and the team works hard to facilitate a packed calendar of social gatherings and events which helps to bring people together.”
Customers at Lambrook Court benefit from shared spaces within the development, including a homeowners’ lounge, for socialising with neighbours, and landscaped gardens.
John Galvin, EAC’s Chief Executive, explained the importance of the awards: “Specialist housing for older people plays an enormously significant role in helping them stay independent for longer.
“The security, support and great communities have a positive impact on individuals and reduce the need for NHS services.”
