Care home provider NorseCare has celebrated a double triumph at the Norfolk Care Awards 2020.
Westfields care home in Swaffham, West Norfolk took the Dignity and Respect in Everyday Life award, while outgoing Managing Director Karen Knight (pictured) received the Harold Bodmer Outstanding Achievement award.
Judges at the awards recognised how staff at Westfields, which cares for up to 45 people, empowered residents to have a say in the day to day running of the home. Karen was honoured for her over 30 years’ service and NorseCare’s achievements last year, which included five CQC Outstandings and LaingBuisson and National Dementia Care Awards.
Martin Rix, NorseCare’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “The Norfolk Care Awards give amazing recognition to the care and support provided to many people. I am thrilled that we have received these awards and it is wonderful recognition of the high quality care that we provide in our homes and schemes and to Karen’s personal contribution over her long career in social care.”
NorseCare also had three other finalists at the Norfolk Care Awards. Robert Kett Court housing with care scheme in South Norfolk were shortlisted in the Excellent Person Centred Care and Support category, Munhaven care home in North Norfolk were finalists in Excellence in Delivering Dementia Care category and Jo Bolton, Manager at Westfields, was a finalist in the Motivational Leadership category.
