National Care Awards!

I am delighted to announce that the Team at Valerie Manor have been selected as finalists for the National Team of 2017! I am so proud of everyone and delighted that their hard work and dedication has been recognized.

I was also surprised and thrilled to hear that staff, residents and relatives nominated me for the Registered Manger of 2017 and I have also been shortlisted. I must admit that when I read through the nominations I cried as the things that everyone said were just so lovely. The nomination meant so much to me.

Winners of the National Care Awards will be presented with their trophies by David Baddiel at the high profile Gala Night held on Friday 24th November at the Hilton London Metropole Hotel, attended by over 700 guests.

About the Awards

The National Care Awards is an annual event organised by Caring Times magazine, a management magazine for the social care sector. Caring Times reflects the opinions of the social care sector, focusing on news affecting the private, public and not-for-profit providers of nursing and residential care. The Awards were devised to celebrate the very best people in the long-term care sector, by highlighting excellence and rewarding those who work tirelessly to provide consistently outstanding care. There were 18 categories to enter overall and there were four or five finalists in each category. All finalists will meet with two independent judges for each category on 29th September at the Awards’ Judging Day at the Hilton London Metropole Hotel.
