Summerset takes top prize in People’s Choice Awards
Summerset is honoured to receive the top prize of Best Provider Nationwide in the Aged Advisor 2021 People’s Choice Awards. The awards were informed by over 2000 in-depth reviews of retirement villages and aged-care facilities, submitted through the Aged Advisor service.
“It’s a great validation of the quality of service and care that we provide in giving our residents the best of life,” says Summerset CEO Scott Scoullar. “It’s especially encouraging to have such a strong vote of confidence at a time when we’ve been working hard to meet the significant challenges posed by COVID-19.
“I offer my sincere thanks to Aged Advisor and everyone who sent in their enthusiastic reviews, for this award and your support and good will. And to all our wonderful staff at Summerset, thank you for putting your heart and soul into the important work that you do, day after day.”
Four Summerset villages also made it to the finals – in the category of Best Large Retirement / Lifestyle Village:
Summerset in the Orchard, Hastings
Summerset in the River City, Wanganui
Summerset at Wigram, Christchurch
Summerset on Cavendish, Christchurch
“I couldn’t be more proud of our people, who bring their best across the breadth of services we deliver,” says General Manager Operations Eleanor Young. “At Summerset, we put a great deal of care into everything we do. I see it every day, and I know our residents and their families see it too, so it’s fantastic to have that recognised.”
