Four Seasons Health Care won the award for ‘Specialist Care Provider of the Year’ at this year’s prestigious HealthInvestor Awards.
In the ‘Specialist Care Provider of the Year’ category, Four Seasons’ innovative PEARL programme stood out to the judges for its success in delivering specialised dementia care. Since its launch in 2008, PEARL-accredited homes have reduced the use of antipsychotic medications to manage symptoms by 48% on average, as well as significantly improving residents’ wellbeing.
Ian Smith, Chairman and interim Group CEO for Four Seasons Health Care said: “I am delighted that Four Seasons was awarded Specialist Care Provider of the Year as a result of our innovative PEARL programme. This success is predominately down to our Director of Dementia Care, Caroline Baker, and her team for their pioneering work and dedication to advancing dementia care.”
In addition, Terra Firma was named 2013 Private Equity Investor of the Year >£50m by HealthInvestor for its acquisition of Four Seasons Health Care in 2012.
The winners were announced at an awards ceremony on 11th June 2014 held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
