Eight Finalists in Lincolnshire Care Awards for ‘Outstanding’ Provider

Eight colleagues supporting adults with learning disabilities are shortlisted for Lincolnshire Care Awards.

Members of the team at Home From Home Care, which supports adults with learning disabilities, autism and complex physical and mental health, have been shortlisted to be award winning rising stars, innovators and providers of outstanding care.

The family-run company, which runs 11 care homes and specialist integration services across Greater Lincolnshire, is unique among care providers due to its high-tech, data-informed care model and its investment in training and developing its team members.

The Lincolnshire Care Awards is an annual celebration organised by the Lincolnshire Care Association to recognise outstanding work across the care sector in the county.

Managing director and founder of Home From Home Care, Paul de Savary said:

“Our colleagues are the lifeblood of what we do at Home From Home Care so they all play a vital role in making us one of the highest performing care providers in the country, with nine of our 11 homes rated Outstanding by the CQC.

“To have eight of our colleagues shortlisted for this year’s Lincolnshire Care Awards is testament to not only the individuals themselves, but our whole team. The range of categories that we have received nominations for showcases how dynamic our model of care really is and the amazing career opportunities with more than 90 different roles.

“As a family led service, we’ve always done things differently from other care providers and it’s particularly important to us that we really look after our team members. We expect a high level of commitment and dedication, but in return we put the work into helping each person to discover their talents, grow their skills and keep their careers rapidly moving forward. I wish the best of luck to our colleagues on the night.”

Home From Home Care’s eight nominations come across seven different categories in the Lincolnshire Care Awards.

Two young Home From Home Care colleagues, Jodi Asman and Sophie Grayson, are nominated in the Rising Star category. Jodi was only 17 years old and one of Home From Home Care’s ancillary workers at the time of her nomination. The Rising Star award recognises those who have worked in the care sector for no more than two years. Home From Home Care currently holds the award, after Jack Screaton was named Rising Star for 2021 at last year’s ceremony.

Home From Home Care’s in-house professional chef Darren Hampton is nominated in the Care Home Cook/Chef category. Darren has previously cooked for a number of celebrities and large scale events and even travelled the world catering for a Formula 1 team. He has also recently started cooking workshops to teach colleagues how to cook healthy, nutritious meals for the individuals they support and their loved ones at home.

Anna O’Gara is a finalist in the Care Innovator category, celebrating best practice in care innovation, while Clair Blanchard is nominated in the Social Care Nurse and Nurse Associate category, rewarding those who use their expertise and clinical and technical knowledge to deliver effective care.

Jemma Clark is nominated for the Workforce Development award, designed to acknowledge the role of the trainer with a care provider. Beth Boulton is nominated in the Registered Manager award category, recognising her high level of expertise and skills in managing the complex business of running a specialist care home.

Finally, Home From Home Care’s Health Partner Team is nominated for Outstanding Care Team at the awards, which is sponsored by the seven Lincolnshire District Councils.

Ahead of the ceremony later this month, the Lincolnshire Care Association said:

“Our annual care awards allow us to give back and say thank you to those who give so much to others. To those who make sacrifices each day to ensure that Lincolnshire’s most vulnerable are seen and supported. We can’t wait to welcome our finalists to the 2022 Lincolnshire Care Awards gala awards evening.”

The winners will be announced at the Lincolnshire Care Awards ceremony on Thursday 30 March 2023 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Lincoln.
