L’Hermitage SMO scoops top award

The SMO (Senior Maintenance Officer) at L’Hermitage care home in St Peter, Jersey, has won a top award for the calibre of her work.

With more than 5,500 employees across the group Lynne Berry beat off stiff competition to be recognised as SMO of the Year 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.

L’Hermitage care home in St Peter, Jersey, is a stunning purpose-built care home, providing residential and nursing care for up to 66 elderly people. Beaumont Villa provides specialist dementia care for up to 24 elderly residents. Located within the grounds of L’Hermitage Gardens Retirement Village, our purpose-built homes represent our commitment to delivering outstanding care.

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

The judges shared the views of one nomination which stated; “Lynn is exceptional, working on an island with several constraints. She remains resourceful, forging relationships with local suppliers and contractors. Lynn is always available, is knowledgeable and always smiling with a warm and caring relationship with residents.”

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.
