Prior Park is one of 32 to have

won a top prize - out of almost

25,000 retirement housing

schemes or developments

nationwide. Another emh

homes scheme, St. Michael’s

Court in Sutton-in Ashfield, was

highly commended.

Now in their seventh year, the

awards celebrate the best

specialist housing for older

people, and aim to help

shape the future of housing in

later life through engaging

over ten thousand residents,

An older people’s housing scheme in Ashby-de-la-Zouch that we own and manage

has won a Gold award at the Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC) Awards 2017.

Local retirement homes

win national recognition

staff, visitors and volunteers who

were all able to vote for their

favourite scheme out of the

1,180 nominated.

John Galvin, Chief Executive of

EAC, 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.”

Over in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Gail

Wyatt, Older Person’s Co-

ordinator at St. Michael’s Court,

said:

“We are delighted to

receive national recognition for

what we do here. I feel very

fortunate that we have an age

range of 55 to 92 and that

everyone gets along really well.”
