Outstanding Care And Excellence Recognised – Greensleeves’ Accolades

On 3rd March 2015 Greensleeves Homes Trust held its 7th Accolades event at The Oval to recognise the staff who do a tremendous job in providing the residents with an excellent level of care at its 17 care homes.

The work of all staff working in Greensleeves Homes Trust care homes is highly significant and the Trust values the positive contribution that each member of staff is making to the lives of the residents.

Mike Holt, Chairman of Greensleeves Homes Trust, read out excerpts from letters received from the relatives of the residents, which showed how much residents and their loved ones value the work of each member of staff in the care homes. All these gestures of kindness and going ‘an extra mile’ make a huge difference to the lives of the residents who feel truly cared for and appreciated.

The Greensleeves Homes Trust’ Trustees were delighted to present winners in each of the categories with the award certificates, trophies and prizes.
