Local staff at Care South at Home’s office in Crewkerne, Somerset are celebrating after scooping the ‘Care South at Home Office of the Year’ award at the company’s annual Stars Awards ceremony in recognition of its quality and care compliance alongside great customer feedback and reviews.
Now in its 13th year, the Stars Awards recognise and reward individuals and teams from across the company for their outstanding achievements and excellent care provision. They are an important event during which time is taken to celebrate care staff and thank them for their frontline duties and commitment to residents. The event was held live over Zoom with Care South’s Chairman, Jane Stichbury and Chief Executive, Simon Bird hosting each Care South at Home office online and having an afternoon of celebration offline afterwards.
While the Care South at Home offices enjoy some friendly competition and there must be a winner, it was not an easy decision for judges as the high-quality of care and feedback from clients and their loved ones across the board is second to none.
Sarah, Somerset’s Care South at Home Manager, commented: “We are all over the moon that the Crewkerne office has been selected as the Care South at Home of the year winner. It’s been a busy time and the team has worked exceptionally hard so it’s fantastic for us all to be recognised for this. I would like to personally thank all the hardworking team for their invaluable support too and for making this happen.”
Simon Bird, Chief Executive at Care South, said: “What a challenging year we have had, and our Stars Awards event is a wonderful way to highlight the incredible commitment and hard work from all our Care South at Home offices. I was so pleased to have the opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate that and to thank everyone at Care South for their dedication to the many people in our care. Well done to Sarah and the team at Crewkerne! I hope all our offices are as proud of themselves as I am of them – well done to all!”
