Congratulations to our brilliant care team who were crowned ‘Care Team of the Year’ at this year’s Caring UK awards!
Competing against numerous other homes up and down the country for the coveted title, our team scooped the prize at a glamorous awards ceremony in Leicester.
The annual awards are well-known for celebrating excellence and achievement in care homes all over the UK, recognising those who make a valuable contribution in the provision of care for the elderly. As part of the nomination process, the team were visited by a member of the awards team to take a look around the facilities and see their cohesive working practices first-hand. The representative from Caring UK also spoke to residents and staff about their experiences within the home before filing a comprehensive report which was passed onto the judging panel in order to decide the worthy winner.
The award was presented to a team who demonstrated a shared vision and agreed goals, who were able to work together to provide the best care and resident experience and could also show their passion and commitment to the workplace whilst respecting and supporting one another. The team were able to successfully provide examples as to how they solved a problem together which led to improvements or made a valuable difference to the residents in their care.
We have had a very successful awards season this year as two of our carers also collected prizes at the Great British Care Awards and we couldn’t be more proud of the compassion and dedication displayed by those who make Penhurst Gardens such a special place to live and work.
