Swindon care home team win national 'outstanding service' award

Posted on 17 June 2011

People choosing a care home in the Swindon area will no doubt consider one facility in particular, after its staff won an award for the quality of care they provide.

The team at Park View Care Home in Blunsdon were awarded the Care Team Award for outstanding service at the Great British Care Home Awards ceremony, reports the Swindon Advertiser.

Before being given the award, the care home staff attended a judging day where they were asked about the work they do, team work and what care means to them.

Administrator Claire Dancer spoke of the team's surprise to be awarded the title.

She told the publication: "We enjoy our job so much, we are one big family and we try to make it feel like that at the home, we are not an institution or a hospital we want it to feel like a home."

This comes after care home worker Jane Eversham won the deputy manager/team leader category in Shaw Healthcare's West Midlands Shaw Star Awards, according to the Ledbury Reporter.
