Phillip Steyn, regional director at Care UK said: “This is the second year we have held the Suffolk Awards and it has been great to bring the teams together yet again to celebrate our region.
“Competition was really high across all the categories, with many team members going the extra mile to help meet the needs of residents and their families. It was fantastic to be able to recognise the achievements of those working in our Suffolk care homes and reward them for all of their hard work.”
Marie Reeve, home manager at Mills Meadow commented: “We were thrilled to host this awards ceremony for Suffolk care homes. Everyone works so hard to deliver the best possible care to older people in the region so it was wonderful to be recognised for our efforts.
“I’m absolutely delighted to have won the ‘Outstanding Leadership’ award. It is above anything I ever expected - I look forward to celebrating the win with the team!”
