A staff member at Bristol’s Riversway Nursing Home has scooped a major award for the quality of the care she provides.
Lisa Hodge-Dean, a nurse at the home, was named the winner of the Dementia Carer award at the Great South West Care Awards.
Following her win, Lisa will now attend a national competition, set to take place in March next year.
Jan Wilkins, Director of Operations at Riversway Nursing Home, part of the national Springhill Care Group, said: “We’re all extremely proud of Lisa and delighted her hard work has been recognised in this way.
“Dementia care is such an important part of the work our nurses and care staff provide, and we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of care. Lisa is a much-loved member of staff who always goes the extra mile for those she supports.”
Meanwhile, Springhill Care Group came sixth in its category in the recent Investors in People awards held in London.
The group was shortlisted for the Gold Employer of the Year category, for businesses with between 250 and 4,999 staff, and ultimately made it to the top ten alongside a selection of major international companies.
