Hallmark Care Homes’ facility in Girton, Cambridge has been shortlisted for an esteemed design award.

Arlington Manor Care Home, which opened in October last year, is in the running for an award in the ‘Best New Care Home’ category at the prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design Awards.

The national awards ceremony first established in 1999, seeks to acknowledge the contribution made by designers, architects and the owners of care homes, hospitals and other care schemes to the well-being and quality of life for those in their care.

Arlington Manor provides residential and dementia care and has facilities such as a hair salon, therapy room, cinema room and café.

Design innovations at the home include; a physio room, a musical room, a celebrations room which can be reserved for functions, a winter and summer terrace and an outdoor putting green.

Meanwhile, outside there are landscaped gardens designed by the late award-winning landscape architect David Fountain.

General Manager of Arlington Manor Care Home, Zoe Kirk said: “We are absolutely delighted to be in the final for this prestigious award.

“An enormous amount of hard work, dedication and passion has gone into creating this beautiful facility so that the ladies and gentlemen, their families and the care teams can feel at home. Being shortlisted for this category is a wonderful acknowledgement of all that effort.”

The winners will be named at a glittering ceremony at The Lancaster London Hotel in Westminster on the 13th March.
