Inspirational Paul makes it five with a Great British Care Award

Mill House Activities Supervisor Paul Dixon scooped a fifth award for the Chipping Campden home on Friday winning the Great British Care Awards’ Care Home Activity Organiser title for the Midlands and Cotswold Region.

The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout England and are a celebration of excellence across the care sector. The awards pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work. Paul will join other winners from Caring Homes Group and go through to the National Final in March 2019.

This latest accolade follows a run of praise for Paul and his team at Mill House. Paul was named as Inspirational Newcomer 2018 in the Gloucestershire Care Awards in October. Then in November Gloucestershire Meaningful Activity and Wellbeing Network named him as winner in the Inspirational Member of Staff category as well as Mill House winning an award for Connecting to the Wider Community. In addition Campden Business Forum awarded the team first place for Outstanding Developments and Initiatives in the activities department, during 2018.

At Mill House nursing home in Chipping Campden we deliver the highest standard of residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 45 elderly residents in a friendly and supportive environment. Paul was completely new to the care environment when he joined Mill House in November 2017 and he has spearheaded significant change in the activities department and he always meets every new resident individually to find out their requirements.

Paul has also launched a successful Facebook page for the home and built up relationships with the Chipping Campden community including a garden centre, a hotel, cheese shop, the local Co-op and countless others. He has arranged for school students to come in and play music, organised numerous animal events and hosted community events in the home.

Paul said; “Making our residents happy and providing good customer care is the forefront of everything we do at Mill House. I genuinely feel like I make a difference in the job I do and am thrilled to have won these awards which show that what we do is recognised within the community and the wider care industry.”

Gloucestershire Care Providers’ Association (GCPA) comments including that the activities at Mill House are a perfect example of what care homes should offer, adding that what Paul does at Mill House sums up the word in his award “inspirational”

Campden Business Forum commented on the “building snowmen in bedrooms for people who could not go outside” and the “local farmer and sheep” and said that the home showed great genuine initiative.
