Mayflower Court in Southampton has been praised as one of the best new care homes for older people in the prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design Awards

Judges visited the Anchor care home on Westwood Road yesterday (Wednesday 3 February) to present the team with a trophy recognising their achievement as finalists in the prestigious national design awards and a £500 cheque for their chosen charity, Contact the Elderly.

Nikki Toomer, customer relations manager at Mayflower Court, said: “It’s been a real honour to host the judges today. We’re over the moon to be a finalist in such highly regarded national awards, and so pleased we could support Contact the Elderly in the process.”

Duncan Cryer from Atkins, the architects for the home, said: “Mayflower Court is carefully designed so that residents can be as active, social and independent as they wish. These awards acknowledge how the right property can improve people’s wellbeing and quality of life, so Mayflower Court is a perfect candidate.”

Mayflower Court provides 24 hour care and support for older people as well as specialist dementia care. The home is part of Anchor, England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for older people.
