Cornerstone, whose Head Office is based in Waterlooville, operate two homes in Hampshire; South Africa Lodge in Waterlooville and Kitnocks House in Botley as well as a third, Marula Lodge in Camberley, Surrey. All three homes care for people with challenging behaviours associated with complex neurological and mental health needs
This honour follows what has without doubt been the most challenging 24 months in living memory for the healthcare sector with the COVID pandemic and national staffing shortages at an all-time high, making the accolade an even bigger achievement for all Cornerstone staff.
Within their report Alantra said “The specialist care sector has been on the frontline of the battle against the COVID pandemic, and we owe it an enormous debt of gratitude for everything it has done.
Moreover, we should recognise that this report is published as specialist care businesses across the country continue to operate successfully under challenging circumstances. Many are working in an extremely difficult environment, both for the people they serve and for employees. The “Clap for Carers” campaign now feels like a distant memory, but we are very conscious of the ongoing effort and commitment that the specialist care sector continues to show.”
Cornerstone CEO, Johann van Zyl, said “Our staff never fail to amaze me! Their consistent dedication and care to our vulnerable residents is second to none and again that has been recognised at an international level with this fantastic award. I couldn’t be prouder!”
Cornerstone Healthcare is the only operator in the southeast of England whose main focus is specialist nursing care for people with challenging behaviours as a result of neurological or mental health needs.
