On Friday 8th June, Southern Healthcare’s four homes attended the first annual Outstanding Care Awards Devon and Cornwall 2018 event held at the Livermead House Hotel in Torquay.
The Outstanding Care Awards were created to ‘celebrate the most dedicated individuals, providers and suppliers in the care industry across Devon and Cornwall’. Hundreds of nominations were considered by six judges with various backgrounds in the care industry, and filtered down to the finalists who attended Friday’s event.
Throughout the evening the four homes celebrated as they collected award after award, receiving a staggering six in total.
Sefton Hall took home the Gold award for Dementia Initiative and The Old Rectory received the bronze award in Commitment to Training and Development, the silver award in Dementia Initiative and the Gold award in Activity Organiser of the Year. Parkwood House achieved a Bronze award for Team of Excellence and The Seaton won the Silver Award for Catering Team of the Year.
Operations Manager for the group, Paul Courtney, has said “We are delighted that the hard work, dedication and commitment of our outstanding teams has been recognised with these six fabulous awards”.
The four homes are now preparing for other awards including Caring UK, the National Care Awards and the National Dementia Care Awards, striving for the same success as seen on Friday.
