In a change to previous Dignity in Care Awards ceremonies, this year was all about the nominees and the winners.
Instead of 3 or 4 categories, there were 9 and over 100 nominations for them. The afternoon was all about recognising their work and achievements. The judges had a difficult time reducing many to a winner and runner up. In two categories there were highly commended certificates too. Congratulations must go to the worthy winners though. There were:
- For Collaboration – Trudi
- For Learning – Suzanne Robinson
- For Community Engagement – Paul Irwin
- For the Most Improved Service – Litslade care home
- For the Best Team – Westminster Care
- For Innovation – MHA Hillside care home
- For Fulfilling Lives – Dintta Gould
- For Putting People First – The Chaplaincy Team
- The Overall Dignity in Care winner – Kelly Richards from Swarthmore care home
Well done to everyone nominated; it’s great to see such great examples of dignity in action in Buckinghamshire.
