Gildawood Court Shortlisted For National Award

Dementia specialist care home, Gildawood Court, Attleborough near Nuneaton, Warwickshire, has been shortlisted for Best Dementia Care Manager at the prestigious National Care Awards.

The residential care home has been nominated thanks to their hardworking and dedicated manager, Jo Madejowska, who works tirelessly to improve the quality of life of each resident. Recently Jo won a grant to re-develop the property and garden, which now boasts specialist dementia care in two purpose-built buildings for up to 60 elderly people. The development has been designed to meet the very highest levels as set out by Stirling Dementia Care standards.

Jo Madejowska, Home Manager, Gildawood Court, says: “I’m delighted that I’ve been shortlisted for this amazing award, it’s been a wonderful transformation at Gildawood with all of the developments and gaining so much support from the local community was great too – special thanks to the Prince’s Trust for their team of dedicated team of volunteer gardeners.”

She continued: “I would also like to thank my team for working so hard over the past twelve months, being shortlisted for a national award is amazing recognition.”

The Nuneaton-based nursing home has a sensory/activities area plus two dedicated activities co-ordinators working in conjunction with the clinical team in reviewing each individual’s occupational interests, and tailoring an activities programme that addresses their needs. Gildawood Court offers residential support for people living with different types of dementia and provides a full range of dementia care support, including trial stays, short stay and convalescent care, as well as long-term care.

Gildawood Court is part of the Caring Homes Group, which was established in 1994 by registered nurse Helena Jeffery and her son Paul. Since then the company has grown to become one of the most highly respected independent care and support providers in the UK.

The winners of The National Care Awards will take place on 27 November at the Hilton London Metropole.
