Kirklees Care Home wins Specialist Adult Care Award for 2015
Posted on April 9, 2015
The North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) hosted their first local care home awards on March 16th of this year. Designed to celebrate the hard work that care homes put in, the ceremony brought together over 90 care home staff and local NHS staff. Awards across 14 categories were given out to both individuals and care homes as a whole, to reward them for their continued efforts and good practice in the care industry. We’re proud to announce that our Kirklees Care Home in Grimsby won the award for Specialist Adult Care. The twenty-one bed centre specialises in caring for younger adults with learning disabilities, and there are a wide variety of activities going on to give residents a positive atmosphere to live in. Diane, sister of one resident, says: ‘My brother is happy living here. The residents get looked after well and they have regular outings and treats. Most importantly, the staff are so helpful and friendly’. The CCG stated that the Specialist Adult Care award would ‘go to a care provider who demonstrates the delivery of high quality services to users requiring specialist care including, for example, learning disability, physical disability and mental health’. Members of the North East Lincolnshire CCG presented the award to staff members at Kirklees, who were overwhelmed for the recognition they received. Michelle Holliday, the manager of the home, told us that ‘it was a lovely ceremony to attend’ and that they ‘couldn’t be more thrilled with this award’.
