Sharon Field, home manager at Bull Point and Annex House in Devon, has been named as the winner of The Care Home Registered Manager Award in the Great British Care Awards for the South West.
Sharon has a wealth of knowledge in the industry, having worked for Modus Care for 17 years. Two years ago, Sharon was promoted to manager of the care home for adults with autism and challenging behaviour. She completed her level five diploma in management for health and social care, helped by Salutem’s learning and development team.
The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout the UK and are a celebration of excellence across the care sector. The awards pay tribute to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding work within their field.
Sharon said: “I was honoured to be nominated for this award, and I am even more delighted to know that I have been named as the winner.
“Though I would love to take all of the credit for this award, it is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of all our staff.
“It is very important that the people that my team and I care for receive the same opportunities, love and home life as everyone else, so I am thrilled to have been recognised for our efforts.”
John Godden MBE, CEO of Salutem Care and Education, said: “On behalf of the whole Salutem family, I’d like to congratulate Sharon and the team at Bull Point for this extraordinary recognition.
“Their dedication has really come to the fore over the past 18 months when they have gone above and beyond to offer every opportunity for the people we support to live their best lives.”
