The latest care home to open in Congleton crowned champions at the Family Business of the Year Awards 2022.

Just over nine months after their opening, Priesty Fields have received national recognition.

With lavishly furnished rooms, fun activities and vibrantly-decorated amenities like a retro grocer and hairdresser, Priesty Fields already stood out from their contemporaries.

But now this award allows them to stand out further.

Saagar, Business Director at their care home in Congleton, commented: "We're delighted to have won this award for our new flagship home, Priesty Fields. As a family-run business, we can reassure residents and their families that we are small enough to care, but big enough to provide security and stability. 

"Strong family values and maintaining healthy relationships have been instilled in us from a very young age by Bharat, the founder of Handsale. Caring for our loved ones is the most important thing in our lives. We have taken those values and that passion for caring and put them into our design and caring ethos at Priesty Fields." 

He continued: "With the family members involved in the day-to-day running of the business, we try to create a family feeling in our care homes whereby the residents and staff are an extension of the family. On behalf of myself, Rishi, Barrett, Bindu and the rest of the Handsale family, we are extremely grateful to have won this prestigious award." 

In a statement, the site added: "After competing against some serious contenders, we were proud to take home the 'Essence of the Family Business' accolade, which was just one of eight national awards up for grabs."

"At Priesty Fields, we'd like to thank each and every one of our staff members, who work incredibly hard to ensure that we continue to create a comfortable, happy and enabling home for our residents."

The home has 78 beds, and employs at least 80, with hopes to employ 100.

They are located on Priesty Fields, Congleton CW12 4AQ.
