Amberley Lodge is a finalist in the ‘Best for Specialist Care’ and ‘Best Maintenance Team’ categories at the Care Home Awards, thanks to maintenance manager, Harry Sharrard, and the homes excellent reputation for end of life care.
Harry’s technical skills are first class, and everything he does is supported by immaculate paperwork, project plans and costings. Harry has also made a game for residents when he does the weekly fire alarm tests, making something mundane and a little intrusive into something that’s fun.

Krystyna Bosko, home manager at Amberley Lodge, said: “We are thrilled to have been nominated in the ‘Best for Specialist Care’ and ‘Best Maintenance Team’ categories at this year’s Care Home Awards.
“For Harry to be nominated for the Best Maintenance Team award, is not only a huge personal achievement, but also one that we’re so proud to see as the Amberley Lodge team.”
“I’m so pleased to see we’ve been commended for our commitment, care and innovation that the team provides in supporting residents, and their families, who are near the end of their life. After recently being awarded an Outstanding CQC rating, these two nominations are the cherry on the cake!”
