With more than 5,500 employees across the group Denise beat off stiff competition to be a shortlisted finalist in the Registered Nurse of the Year category.

The awards were presented at a glittering ceremony hosted at the Grove Hotel in Watford and presented by musician and singer Ronan Keating.

Home of Compassion, in Thames Ditton, Surrey, is dedicated to providing the highest level of residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 71 elderly residents. The luxurious care home is set in delightful surroundings with beautiful gardens and views over the river.

Following a review of over 3,000 nominations received from colleagues and people supported for the awards, Denise was shortlisted as Registered Nurse of the Year.
The judges shared the views of one nomination which stated; “Denise continually demonstrates outstanding outcomes for residents and staff. She has outstanding leadership skills which are shown on a day to day basis. Denise has a clear vision of how the team should improve all aspects of care and operations.”

Attended by over 340 guests the evening was a great occasion, with colleagues and business partners coming together to celebrate the very best care and support provided by outstanding people.

Paul Jeffery, CEO, Caring Homes Group stated; “The Recognition Awards 2017, provided an opportunity to showcase talent, dedication and commitment, as well as demonstrate the crucial role our professionals play in caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
