Brookholme reaches finals of Great British Care Awards
Brookholme Care Home has reached the finals of the Great British Care Awards for three separate categories. Our Chesterfield care home has been shortlisted 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.
Our Care Home Manager, Donna Redman, is a finalist for The Putting People First Award. Kathy Holden and Dawn Wooton, Community Activities Co-ordinators at the home, are finalists for The Care Home Activities Organiser Award. Lauren Redman, Lead Senior at the home, is a finalist for The Palliative Care/End of Life Award.
Hanif Ladhani, proprietor of our Chesterfield care home, said he was proud of the home’s success: “We have an outstanding team of unsung heroes at Brookholme. 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 Brookholme Care Home.
Care Home Manager and finalist, Donna Redman, 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.”
Brookholme 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-ordinators and finalists, Kathy and Dawn, have gone to great lengths to keep residents at Brookholme 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.
Our popular Chesterfield care home, which is currently welcoming new residents, despite lockdown restrictions in other businesses, will take part in a virtual judging event next month along with other care homes in the region.
