Manager Sujith Nair said: “This was a wonderful achievement and staff should feel immensely proud of the excellent care and support they provide to our residents. We are grateful to the support we receive.”

At the ceremony, staff from care homes across the county were praised by Paul Mckay, director of adult social services, for their dedication for caring for the residents.

The accolades recognise how staff consistently support and care for residents and go above and beyond and are outstanding in their everyday roles. 

Oak Lodge won Best Practice and Best Care Employer.

This was a wonderful achievement and staff should feel immensely proud of the excellent care and support they provide to our residents.
