Hallmark Care Homes shortlisted for two National Dementia Care Awards
We’re delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for two National Dementia Care Awards.
Our Dementia and Wellbeing Team has been shortlisted for Best Dementia Team, alongside Emily Carver from Maycroft Manor, who has been shortlisted for Best Activity Lifestyle Lead.
The awards, which were first established in 2009 by The Journal of Dementia Care, will seek to acknowledge care providers and individuals who have made a significant difference to the quality of life of people living with dementia.
Speaking of the prestigious nomination, Head of Dementia Care and Wellbeing, April Dobson said: “I’m so proud of the team for reaching the finals of these prestigious national awards – it’s recognition of their unique blend of skills and the hard work they do quietly behind the scenes to help the teams in the homes bring joy, happiness, and comfort to the lives of people living with dementia and their families.”
Lifestyles Lead at Maycroft Manor Care Home in Brighton, Emily Carver said: “I am over the moon to be nominated for this award. My team and I are super proud of the work we do to provide inclusive, creative, age-appropriate activities for residents living with dementia across all communities at Maycroft Manor.
“Being nominated for this award is very exciting and a massive deal! I’m looking forward the award ceremony in Winchester next week.”
The winners of the 12th National Dementia Care Awards will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at Winchester Cathedral on Thursday 29th September.
