Cornerstone Healthcare operates two specialist nursing homes; South Africa Lodge in Waterlooville and Kitnocks House in Curdridge. The homes care for people with challenging behaviours associated with complex neurological, physical and mental health needs.
The group is shortlisted in three categories in the Care Home Awards; best nursing care, best training initiative and best maintenance team.
The nomination comes six months after the group took over the homes.
The winners will be announced on June 27.
