Royal Deeside Retirement Village Wins National Award

One of the UK’s first continuing care retirement villages has been recognised with the receipt of a national award.

Inchmarlo is located near Banchory on Royal Deeside and celebrated its landmark 30 th anniversary last year. It was named “Most Outstanding Continuous Care Community in the UK” at the recent UK Over 50s House Awards 2016 and the prestigious accolade was presented to Chairman Professor Charles P Skene OBE and his daughter Pamela Norris (Group Operations and HR Director) during a recent ceremony in London.

Now in their seventh year, the UK Over 50s Housing awards recognise and reward excellence in the sector, celebrating those who enhance customer experience and satisfaction by way of innovation.

The award coincides with news that Inchmarlo’s latest development, Pinecrest, has completely sold out with plans now in place to launch the second phase with a special open day on Saturday May 6th.

Pinecrest phase two is a development of two bedroomed south-facing luxury homes which feature a study with the potential to be utilised as a third bedroom. All include garages and private driveways and are expected to be complete by the end of the year.

The forthcoming open day will give visitors the chance to view the development’s show home between 10am and 4pm and tour the award-winning estate, which includes Inchmarlo House Care Home.

Commenting on the award, Professor Skene said: “I was delighted to accept this award recognising, as it does, the success of our concept of providing care services, including respite care, to homeowners. These services enable our homeowners to continue to live independently in their own homes longer than would be the case elsewhere.”
