Graham Care Awards 2014
Cornford House – Graham Care Awards 2014
It was a night to remember for Cornford House as we celebrated the first Graham Care Awards at the Felbridge Hotel on 14 November.
This was a care awards with a difference as the Award winners were joined by specially invited residents and their families as well as colleagues and care professionals from Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
The winners themselves had been nominated by residents, their relatives and friends who have seen for themselves the outstanding qualities these individuals bring to the care and support of their loved ones.
The winner at Cornford House was Jackie Presnell
Jackie started as a cook at Cornford and has grown and adapted with us, she has always been at the heart of Cornford. One relative who nominated Jackie and keeps in touch via Resilink and says “We are so impressed with the reports we read on Resilink about the conversations she has with Dad; it is evident that she has taken the time to talk with him and find out about him as a person and his past.”
The Graham Care Awards were created to celebrate the achievements of those members of staff who are helping transform the lives of people with dementia and physical frailty.
Owner of Graham Care Group Ernie Graham said: “Jackie and all our winners are people who can empathise with our residents and see the world through their eyes; they are not afraid of putting the needs of others first; their reward is a job well done and the Graham Care Group believes that is worthy of celebration. The Awards recognise staff who excel in delivering relationship-centred care on a daily basis; individuals who motivate the team around them and who positively enjoy supporting residents and giving them the individualised care, companionship and stimulation that facilitates their well-being.”
