Sherdley Court nominated for four national awards
The Sherdley Court team are celebrating after being shortlising for four accolades that recognise the personalised nature of its support and the quality of their end of life care.
The residential home has made the shortlist of the prestigious Markel Third Sector Care Awards for its end of life care and also in the 'putting people first' category of the Great British Care Awards.
Two staff members at the service are also in the running for individual recognition, with registered manager Hayley Rowson de Vares up for a Great British Care Award for her contribution to the home's end of life care.
Meanwhile, chef Craig Woodhead is hoping to take home the care home cook of the year title.
Hayley Rowson de Vares, registered manager, said: "Sherdley Court is a home for life and as well as doing everything we can to help people live well, we also take end of life care very seriously. Our end of life provision has always been person-centred, recognising that everybody’s experience is different and what works for one resident may not work for someone else.
"Staff spend a great deal of time getting to know the individuals and their families, finding out about their work, hobbies, spiritual needs and beliefs.
"Sherdley welcomes pets and at times we have had a number of companion animals living with us including cats, a dog, a mouse, budgies and chickens."
Hayley and her staff team will now face a series of Zoom interviews and will find out next year whether they have won at gala dinner awards event in 2021.
