The LaingBuisson Awards honour and celebrate industry excellence in the UK health and social care services within public, private and third sectors.

Anchor Hanover, England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for people in later life, was recognised nationally for its excellence in providing residential care for older people and its focus on innovation and engagement with residents. This is the second consecutive year Anchor Hanover has received the accolade.

The judges cited Anchor Hanover’s use of Memoride, a virtual cycling platform for older people, in their decision.

They said: “The Memoride, a pedal exerciser which generates an image of a town onto a screen using Google Maps, is simple yet effective to taking people ‘out.’ The business outcome and service users outcome is remarkable.”
