Anchor Hanover, England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for older people, has won an incredible 61 regional accolades as part of the annual Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC) Awards.
The impressive tally includes 26 Gold, 26 Silver and nine Bronze awards, given for retirement housing and also housing-with-care.
Five Anchor Hanover locations have also been shortlisted for a national award and will go head to head with 27 other providers when the winners are announced in May.
The EAC Awards celebrate the best specialist housing for older people and aim to help shape the future of housing in later life. This year saw nearly 19,000 votes cast, with some 1,220 properties nominated across the country.
Chris Munday, Managing Director, Housing Operations for Anchor Hanover said: “We’re thrilled to have been recognised in so many categories and across so many areas of the country. This is testament to the hard work and commitment demonstrated by Anchor Hanover staff to create living environments which enable residents to live independently for longer and also provide essential services that meet their changing needs.”
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.”
