Care home group celebrates excellence at staff awards

A care home group based across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire have recognised the dedicated work of their staff by hosting an awards evening, handing out over 20 awards.

Milford Care, which operates six residential and nursing homes, hosted their special event at their ‘Outstanding’ rated care home, Ashbourne Lodge, and decked it out with a red-top theme, black tie dress, three course meal and an open bar.

The 6 care homes across the two counties were invited to attend in order to receive their awards and gifts for going the extra mile for the residents and the group. Staff members from every department of the group attended, including nurses, kitchen staff, managers, maintenance, and Head Office staff.

Richard Glover, winner of the Chef Award said, “To be nominated and chosen for this award is an honour and I’m extremely proud to be representing the group. Working with the residents to devise menus and make sure they have everything they need is a pleasure. Milford Care has always made sure to recognise people’s efforts so it makes the award seem even more special.”

Pierre Falleth, Director Milford Care, said: “We are delighted to give out so many awards to our fantastic team members. Our teams work so hard and offer a huge amount of support to one another, our residents and their families. It’s a pleasure to host an awards event in honour of these selfless individuals. Despite only having a select number of awards to give out, I want to thank the whole group for their contributions to the running of the homes. We couldn’t do it without you.”
