Life in Colour Awards 2023 – The Family Focus Award

Borough Care’s mission is to create environments in which older people can stay well and live Life in Colour.

The Life in Colour Awards are back for 2023, and are an amazing opportunity to vote for the individuals, teams and homes who go above and beyond and continuously champion Life in Colour! Last year, we counted a whopping 1,200 nominations from across our 12 care homes, and held the awards in October at an event attended by over 140 members of our team.

The Family Focus Award

This year, we’re inviting our residents, and their families and loved ones to vote in The Family Focus Award category. This award is for the care home that most supports the families of its residents and involves them in all aspects of their loved one’s care. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from the people we care for and their families, and and a chance for you to recognise our amazing teams!

How to Nominate

There are two ways to nominate: From Friday August 18th, you can nominate at your loved one’s care home using the nomination form and ballot box, or, you can vote online from today, using this online form. Nominations will close on Friday September 22nd 2023.
