Residential and domiciliary care provider Helthcare Homes has reached the finalists of two national award schemes for the sector.

The company, which is based at Langham, near Colchester, and operates across the eastern region, has been shortlisted in the Residential Care Provider of the Year category in the HealthInvestor 2013 Awards.

It is also on the shortlist for the Domiciliary Care Provider of the Year category in the same awards, in recognition of the work carried out by its homecare division, Manorcourt Care.

Healthcare Homes has also been named among the finalists in Laing & Buisson’s 2013 Independent Healthcare Awards in the Residential Care Provider category, while Manorcourt Care has been shortlisted for the Domiciliary Healthcare Provider award.

The HealthInvestor awards are due to be announce next week, with the Laing & Buisson event taking place in October.

David Bates, chief operating officer, Healthcare Homes, said: “To be shortlisted for such prestigious industry awards is a fantastic achievement.

“We take great pride in delivering the highest levels of service and care, whether that is within a residential or nursing home setting, or when helping people within their own homes.
