Hallmark Care Homes has used live streaming to open its £12 million new care home in Hutton View, Essex.
Restrictions around Covid-19 and the need for social distancing precluded a physical ceremony, with the care group using a specialist broadcast company to facilitate an event to promote the opening of the home and to host a panel discussion on dementia care.
Around 300 local businesses and care professionals logged on to hear from Avnish Goyal and Hallmark’s managing director Ram Goyal, in what the company claim is the first ‘live-streamed’ opening of such a facility in the UK.
Hallmark Care Homes Managing Director, Ram Goyal said: “I am proud of everyone who has been involved in the building and opening of the care home, including the Savista Developments Team and the team involved in the grand launch.
“We are looking forward to making Hutton View a part of the community providing high-quality care for residents in the future, enabling them to live life to the full.”
Chair of Hallmark Care Homes and CEO of Savista Developments, Avnish Goyal said: “We are delighted to have completed our second Savista project to the highest standards, incorporating the latest technology and ideas not only from the sector but from our teams and our recent innovation challenge.
“We are continuing to innovate with our pipeline of projects and we will continue to raise the bar by creating beautiful environments that enhance the quality of life for older people.
