We are absolutely delighted to share with you the amazing night we had at the Kent Care Awards 2021, which was an all-around brilliant event. It was humbling to see such recognition for care staff and to see all finalists in one room. We were incredibly proud to be finalists in 4 major categories:

  • Residential Registered Manager Award (Michelle Millard) – an award for Managers who are able to demonstrate their exceptional ability to lead well an enriched quality and safe service to their residents.
  • Palliative Care Award (Ann Savage) – an award for those who demonstrate how special and professional they have to be able to support someone who is at the end of their life.
  • Putting People First Award (Cheryl Waters) – an award for those who demonstrate how they put people first within their service area. Judges looked for exceptional examples of the individual’s putting people first ethos in their delivery of care and support.
  • Care Team Award (Kayleigh Roberts, Dalila Neves, Ruth Couch and Michelle McKay) – An award for a team of two or more support or care staff who are able to demonstrate how as a team they enhance the lives of those they support.

Celebrations could be heard for miles when it was announced that we were the winners of the Care Team Award. ‘Over the moon’ is an understatement and without each and every staff member’s care and dedication to our residents, this would not have been possible.  We thank all our brilliant staff for all they do and are so pleased that they have the recognition they deserve.

From this award, we step up to the next round – the Regional Care Award.
