Star Employee Award

Everyone has an important role to play in helping our residents enjoy life; the care team, maintenance, cooks, and cleaning staff. Recognising their valuable contribution is partly through our Star Employee Award scheme.

We encourage nominations from residents, staff, family members and professionals where a staff member has done something over and above the high standards that we expect. It is awarded at each staff meeting which is approximately every 8 – 10 weeks.

Our most recent ‘Star Employee’ is Barry Green. Barry’s role in maintenance and his diligence and caring manner is a really good example of how every member of the team, not just the carers, make a positive difference to someone’s life.

Our star employee for August is Barry Green. Barry is always incredibly helpful and goes beyond the call of duty. Residents will chat to Barry whilst he's fixing something in their rooms and sometimes that  can help us understand if they have any little concerns or worries that perhaps they wouldn't have mentioned. It all helps towards ensuring our residents have a better quality of life!

Aurora Ross-Booker wins Star Employee Award for March 2018

Aurora is one of the senior carers and is also our Training Co-ordinator. Aurora understands that juggling shifts, home life and training isn't always easy and she goes out of her way to accommodate staff needs and wishes for one to one sessions to fit around their times as best she can and supports them to achieve their qualifications. She's PGCE trained and it's a huge benefit to the staff and the home and we're proud of the quality of training we offer. A big thank you!

Libby Jones wins Star Employee Award for January 2018

Well done Libby for winning the Star Employee Award for January! One of the particular skills we train the team in is the ability to support our residents, who perhaps are not as able as others, to voice their preferences and choices. Libby has proved to be really good at this. We also look for all staff members to use 'the butterfly approach'. It means that they engage with each resident, whether they are passing them in the dining room or the lounge in a meaningful way even if relatively short. Once again, Libby has excelled. Thank you for all your hard work.
