Richmond Care Home reaches finals of Great British Care Awards for second year running
Richmond Care Home in Shirebrook has reached the finals of the Great British Care Awards for the second year running. Our team has been shortlisted in three award categories for the 2020 awards.
The prestigious Great British Care Awards recognises excellence in social care and pays tribute to care homes and individuals that have demonstrated excellence in their field of work.
The whole team at Richmond Care Home has been shortlisted for the Putting People First Award. Care Home Manager, Kate Birch, is a finalist for The Dignity in Care Award, and Natasha Westwood is a finalist for The Care Home Activities Organiser Award. Both Natasha and Kate were finalists at last year’s Great British Care Awards.
Hanif Ladhani, the proprietor of the Shirebrook care home, said he was proud of the home’s success: “We have an outstanding team of unsung heroes at Richmond. Every member of staff gives an exceptional level of care. I’m delighted that their dedication and kindness has been recognised.”
The news has been welcomed by staff who have gone above and beyond the call of duty this year. Many have made personal sacrifices, including limiting contact with their own families, and putting their social lives on hold, to ensure the safety of residents at Richmond Care Home.
Care Home Manager and finalist, Kate Birch, said, “Our residents are very dear to us, and we will do all we can to protect them. This has been a challenging year for the team, so we are humbled to be shortlisted for so many awards.”
Richmond Care Home has been unable to welcome visitors since March of this year, so activities at the home have been more important than ever. Community Activities Co-ordinator and finalist, Natasha, has gone to great lengths to keep residents at Richmond entertained and their minds active. The regional finalist has continually thought of new ideas for ways in which residents can remain agile and socialise together safely.
The popular Shirebrook care home, which is currently welcoming new residents, will take part in a virtual judging event next month along with other care homes in the region.
