Welcome to a very special Care Home Management magazine podcast as we celebrate the Care Home Awards. CHM is proud to be the official media partner for this great event and our journalists caught up with the winners, sponsors and organisers. A must listen for anyone keen to share best practice. Care UK won a string of awards, including Best Care Home Group for providers with more than 50 homes. We talk to ceo Andrew Knight about the company’s fantastic ‘Fulfilling Lives’ approach to care. We also interview Rachel Beckett, chair of Wellburn Care Homes which picked up an award for the superb dining experience it gives to residents.
We also hear from Cornerstone Healthcare Group’s maintenance manager Andy Foster about an award-winning initiative to introduce more effective seizure monitors and safer mattresses; and from Valerie Manor’s owner and manager Zoe Fry about its family approach to running the business which means it has a waiting list for nurses wanting to work there.
We cap off this Care Home Awards Special with a chat to headline sponsor Legal & General Retirement Living Solutions’ ceo Steve Ellis and organiser Matthew Davies who gives us an exclusive about next year’s Awards.
Well done to everyone on a great event!
