Innovation in our care homes
At Hallmark Care Homes, it is important for us to keep evolving and continually look at innovative ways in how we care for our residents.
It is only through our constant approach in exploring innovative solutions for quality of life and care that has allowed us to not only meet the needs and expectations of residents living in a Hallmark care home, but exceed them.
We are proud to provide beautiful and practical homes in which residents can enjoy the care and lifestyle they deserve.
Innovative ideas are not limited to technology developments but also include exciting ways to promote health and wellbeing in our homes; whether that is through activities, nutrition or through the interior design of the buildings.
Care Accelerator Program
We are proud to have launched, we believe, the first Care Accelerator for the sector run in unison with the Learning and Development department and Innovation department. The programme has allowed team members to research solutions for known industry problems and build a business case, much like a start-up.
The three winning teams identified ways to operate our care homes and construction sites in an environmentally sustainable way and recruit, retain and develop our nurses to meet future care needs.
