Christchurch-based care home shortlisted at the Great British Care Awards 2019
Fairmile Grange, a specialist nursing care home based in Christchurch, has been shortlisted in ‘The Ancillary Worker’ award category at the Great British Care Awards.
The Great British Care Awards hold a series of regional events throughout the UK, which recognise excellence across the care sector. Fairmile Grange is celebrating after its housekeeping team has been recognised for the excellent, person-centred service they provide to each resident at the care home.
Cecilia Thomson, Home Manager at Fairmile Grange care home, said: “Receiving a shortlisting at these prestigious awards is really exciting for us. In addition to our nursing staff, our housekeeping team, from the catering staff to the cleaners, work exceptionally hard to provide the best quality care to our residents. They take special pride in their work, so this is a very well-deserved acknowledgment for them.”
“Representatives from our housekeeping team travelled to Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol earlier this month, where they attended the judging day for the awards, along with the other care providers we are competing against. We are delighted to get this far and hope we will be able to continue our journey in this competition and be recognised as a successful candidate at the next stage.”
Fairmile Grange is an 80-bed care home, which is managed by Encore Care Homes. Situated in the grounds of Christchurch Hospital, Fairmile Grange has state-of-the-art facilities, a stunning landscaped garden and expertly trained staff who are supportive and provide excellent care to the residents.
