Bendigo Systems Ltd who launched their ground-breaking new technology system earlier in 2016 have been presented with the Care Innovation award at the Great East Midlands Care Awards.
Bendigo’s system has been designed to deliver simple, practical and personalised solutions to people living with dementia, physical illness or disability.
Nick Gale and John Osborne, Co-Founders of Bendigo, were brought together by their personal experience as family carers. They have now combined their professional expertise in Smart Home Technology and Health & Social Care to deliver a new service that provides customers with independence, safety and peace of mind in their own home.
On Saturday 19th November, Nick Gale attended a glittering awards ceremony at The Belfry Hotel, Nottingham for the finals of the Great East Midlands Care Awards. Bendigo was announced as the recipient of the Care Innovator Award.
The judges said they were, “…impressed by the thought that had gone into the system, the motivation and enthusiasm of the team and they are continuously assessing as to how they can improve.”
Nick Gale commented, “We had a fantastic night at the ceremony and were honoured to receive the award. We have created a unique and innovative service for people who need support in their own homes and we’re excited about people recognising assistive technology as an integral part of health and social care.”
The awards are part of the Great British Care Awards, a series of 9 regional awards celebrating excellence across the care sector. Bendigo Systems will now go through to the national final at Birmingham’s ICC in Spring 2017.
Recognition has also come from Tomorrow’s Care Magazine who have shortlisted Bendigo as a finalist in its first Tomorrow’s Care Awards 2017 as one of the very best products and services in the industry. The winner will be selected by reader vote in January 2017.
