Helen was described by her staff as “amazing”, with “an infectious energy”.
In addition, Meadow House Nursing Home in Swaffham won the ‘TEAM – Together Everyone Achieved More’ award for its unrelenting work in ensuring every member of the team works together to deliver the best individual outcomes for its residents. The ‘Outstanding’ rated home was also recognised for its ongoing fundraising efforts for its residents and charities that are important to them, including the MS Trust.
Also recognised at the awards was Healthcare Homes’ training and development team, where it was Highly Commended for the ‘Delivering excellence through learning and development’ category. This focused on the innovation shown in creating a host of new accredited courses and development opportunities for its staff, including the Health Care Practitioner role and as a brand new Dementia Champions Programme.
