Calderdale care provider, Angelcare, and their independent care home, Angelcare Residential Living, have been nominated as Independent Business of the Year at the Yorkshire Choice Awards.
Angelcare offers a range of homecare services for elderly and disabled individuals and works closely with the local authority, as well as providing care from their second office in Wakefield.
Angelcare Residential Living is a private care home situated on a historic Georgian property in West Vale. A family-run business with three generations of experience in care, they opened Calderdale’s only fully private care home in August 2020 following a £500,000 refurb of the premises, previously used as the Ingwood Restaurant in the 1970s and 80s.
The home delayed opening to the public so that it could be used by the council at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, offering a space for those suffering from the virus.
The Yorkshire Choice Awards was founded by Joanne Maltby and Melanie Malcolm who saw an opportunity to recognise and raise the awareness of local people and independent businesses that are inspirational in their own way or in the markets they serve. Angelcare has previously received numerous regional and national awards, including ‘Best Architectural Design or Community Space’ at the National Care Home Awards, as well as being finalists for ‘New Care Home of the Year’.
Their home care service has been recognised numerous times over the years, including their use of innovative technology and caring for members of the LGBT community.
Tom Enefer, Director of Angelcare commented “We’re proud of our industry awards, but to be recognised in the region is even more important to us. All of the people in our care are local and we’re proud to be a Yorkshire business providing outstanding levels of care, as well as creating job opportunities in Calderdale and throughout the region, both in the care home and for our home care services”.
The winners are decided by the general public, and Tom encourages local people to get out and vote. We’d love to bring this award back to Calderdale, and any little bit helps. Please consider voting for us on the Yorkshire Choice Awards website to give us the best chance”.
