National Care Awards 2019
2019 WINNER in two award categories
The National Care Awards is the longest established annual awards for the care sector. The Awards celebrate the very best people in the long-term care sector, highlighting excellence and rewarding those who work tirelessly to provide consistently outstanding care.
Kim was chosen by the Judges because while she strives for perfection, and achieves excellent standards in housekeeping, she does not lose focus in the needs of residents. She goes that extra mile in supporting and enriching their lives. Families, residents and colleagues all speak very highly of her and her attention to detail, and they clearly all love her!
The journey that Zoe has made in the twelve months since she left school has been inspirational. She has a gentle, reassuring and unassuming nature and it was clear that work has made a big impact on her life. The Judges were delighted to hear about her plans to pursue a nursing career.
2018 saw three Care UK homes shortlisted in the finals for the National Care Awards. Katy Hughes at Mildenhall Lodge was recognised in the Care Leadership category whilst Charlotte King at Cleves Place was shortlisted in the Care Apprentice category. Shona Bradbury at Appleby House was also shortlisted for a Dementia Care Manager award.
In 2017 Care UK’s Chairman. Mike Parish, won Care Personality. Mike, who has been chief executive at Care UK since 2001, was one of five senior managers selected by an independent panel for his contribution to the care home sector over the past 12 months.
Since Mike joined Care UK he has taken it from being a small organisation with little infrastructure to become one of the largest health and social care providers in the UK.
