South East Regional Palliative Care Award for the Team!

I am delighted to announce that the Valerie Manor Care team were awarded the South East Regional Award for Palliative / End of Life Care.

Staff really pride themselves in the care that they deliver and the support they offer not only to our residents but to their family and to each other as well.

We have been part of the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) since 2012 and have a Platinum status with a score of 50/50 of which we are very proud of! The Core Team and Champions help to continuously improve what we do at Valerie Manor and also support other staff who are more junior. It is not just the nurses or the care staff but the whole team including office staff, housekeeping staff and hospitality staff who want to take on further learning to support our residents and their families along with their colleagues – This is why I have chosen to nominate the whole team and not one individual.

 

South East Region Great British Care Awards Judging Day

This Tuesday saw some of the team attend the South East Region Great British Care Awards Judging Day at the Hilton Metropole in Brighton.

Zoe had been asked to be a judge again for the awards but obviously wasn’t allowed to judge in the categories we had been selected as finalist in.

  • Best Newcomer – Izzy – Care Assistant.
  • Best assessor and care planner – Debs – Deputy Manager.
  • Best end of life / palliative care – Team Valerie Manor represented by Jane – Registered Nurse, Lucy – Care Supervisor and Alan – Office Manager.
  • Care Innovator for his innovative services to Valerie Manor – Mike Slator, Upper Beeding Pharmacy.

The interviews were spread throughout the day but Izzy’s was the only one in the morning but her colleague Lucy offered to go with her as support.

Everyone felt that the interviews went well and it’s now fingers crossed for the Gala award night on 9th November 2019.

Huge congratulations to all of our fantastic team who continue to provide high standards of care to our residents.

Good Luck to All!
