Tor-Na-Dee celebrates national award win

December 27th 2018

 

Tor-Na-Dee is celebrating after it was recognised at a national awards ceremony. 

The Residential Care Services (RCS) Stars awards recognise individual and team excellence at more than 100 care homes nationwide across Care UK’s RCS division.

Tor-Na-Dee beat off stiff competition to win the Great Dementia Care award, one of 22 accolades handed out during the event.

The panel of judges praised the home’s outstanding and consistent quality in its care of residents living with dementia. It was the home’s high dementia training score (97%), assigned by their Dementia Champion and suite manager Jennifer Coutts, which judges felt set Tor-Na-Dee apart from its competitors in the category.

Maureen Barrett, home manager at Tor-Na-Dee, said: “The RCS award ceremony was a truly inspirational evening – it was brilliant to hear about the compassion and dedication of team members, as well as the positive impact this has had on residents, enabling them to lead fulfilling lives. 

“We are thrilled that Tor-Na-Dee has received the Great Dementia Care Award. Every team member is dedicated to offering the best possible care to residents living with dementia, and I am proud that the home’s commitment to provide ongoing training and development has been rewarded.” 

Tor-Na-Dee is a lively home where the focus is on staying active. The arts and crafts group make soap to sell at the home’s summer fair, while the gardening club grow tomatoes and peppers in the greenhouse. Friends and family also love to get involved - one relative leads the music group, another accompanies the regular singsongs on the organ, whilst others help out in the garden.
