Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge care home staff celebrate awards

Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge care home staff are celebrating after receiving several awards this week.

The Somerset Care Group held its annual awards ceremony in Taunton to recognise staff from across the group for their outstanding achievements, contribution and dedication.

At the ceremony, Brian’s team, who work at Alfred Court in Highbridge, were announced as the Winners of the ‘Team of the Year’ category.

Highly Commended presentations were also made to three members of staff from Frith House; Sheryl Blanco in the category of ‘Quality Dementia Care’, Marise Barry in the category of ‘Customer Service’ and Marites Estioco in the category of ‘Make a Difference’.

Over 100 guests attended the event, which included a lunch and a raffle to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Attendees saw a short film which featured shortlisted nominees and heard speeches from Chairman Chris Davies and Chief Executive Jane Townson.

Jane told "Our future success as a company depends on one thing and one thing only – finding and keeping enough of the right people."

"Ensuring our staff feel valued is one of our most important roles as leaders and managers, as this above all else is a key reason why people stay with us, remain motivated and continue to deliver outstanding care."

"Our annual awards event is always a heart-warming and up-lifting celebration of all that’s great about our people and this year was one of the best we’ve ever had."

"We laughed, cried, heard remarkable stories, and marvelled at the humility, compassion and selflessness displayed by so many of our staff. We cannot thank all of them enough."
