On Tuesday 20 June we celebrated the outstanding achievements of our staff at our annual Care South Stars Awards ceremony.
Now in their seventh year, the Stars Awards are designed to recognise and reward individuals and teams from across Care South for their outstanding achievements and excellent care provision. With fifteen categories, awards cover everything from ‘Best Care Newcomer’, ‘Home Carer of the Year’ and ‘Manager of the Year’, to ‘Best Activities Programme’, ‘Best Care Support Team’, and ‘Home of the Year’.
Making the most of the celebratory atmosphere on the day, staff took part in a unique Oomph! session, which is an exercise activity held in each of the homes for the residents, designed to help improve their mobility.
Staff training and continued professional development are also an important part of the culture at Care South, and the awards provided the ideal opportunity to celebrate the achievements of staff across many disciplines.
Over the last 12 months, more than 50 staff members achieved qualifications in Diplomas, including Health and Social Care, Cleaning and Support Services, Strategic Management and Leadership, Business and Administration, Leadership for Health and Social Care and Enhancing End of Life Care and Palliative Care Practice.
