Huge congratulations to Castle House Nursing Home in Kenton Mandeville, who we were delighted to present with the award for Outstanding Care Team at the Care Focus South West Care Awards on Friday. Also well done and special thanks to all the nominees – Dunster Lodge in the Community, Barnardo’s Family Link Team in Taunton and Sherborne House Altogether Care.
With 390 attendees, it was an inspiration to hear so many positive messages from people working in so many different areas in care. People told us that their jobs are challenging but that they are rewarding, that they love the places they work and that it is an honour to be asked to look after people’s loved ones.
Above all, one clear message stood out from so many voices – people saying: “I work in care and I love what I do.” Which is exactly how care should be.
