Bristol Care Home Celebrates 21 Years Of Service And Dedication From Staff

A care home in Bristol, which supports people aged 40 and above with learning disabilities, has celebrated 21 years of service with some of its longest serving members of staff and residents.

Springbank is a Shaw healthcare operated home in Brentry and opened its doors for the first time in 2000.

Kay Williams, manager of Springbank care home, and Andrea Butler, deputy manager, have first-hand seen the development of the home over the last 21 years, as have Margaret and Stuart – two residents who have become great friends since arriving at the home on its first day.

Since then, Springbank has been awarded the ‘Champion Service’ award at Shaw healthcare’s annual Shaw Star Awards for its consistently high levels of care, and achieved an ‘outstanding’ Care Quality Commission rating for being responsive to people’s needs.

Now, to mark the special occasion and to celebrate hard work and commitment throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, staff members were handed certificates and chocolate gifts.

Kay said: “After what has been an extraordinary 18 months, it was fantastic for faces new and old to come together and celebrate our anniversary.

“Since the day I joined and Springbank opened, there has been a huge sense of team spirit, and we are very fortunate to have such a kind and supportive community around us who trust our service.”

Along with deputy manager Andrea, Kay accepted a plaque from Shaw healthcare’s chief operating officer, Russell Brown. Simon Kezic-Williams, regional director, was also amongst the day’s guests.
