Glenda shortlisted for fulfilling lives award

The activity coordinator at Mellish House was shortlisted for helping residents to live fulfilling lives at the Caring Homes Group Recognition Awards.

With over 5,500 employees across the group Glenda Davison beat off stiff competition to be shortlisted for the Fulfilling Lives Award for Caring Homes.

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

Mellish House care home in Sudbury is a purpose-built home providing residential care for up to 48 elderly residents living with a form of dementia.

Following a review of over 3,000 nominations received from colleagues and people supported for the awards, Glenda was shortlisted for this prestigious award.

On being shortlisted Glenda said; “I’m thrilled at being shortlisted and as an activity coordinator for 15 years I’ve worked hard towards activities becoming a vital part of person-centred care here at Mellish House.”

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.

“It’s very important that we celebrate success, from the finalists nominated, to the thousands of our colleagues making a significant contribution to caring for and supporting people all over the UK.”

The event was generously sponsored by Caring Homes Group’s business partners, who together made the event possible.
