Mill House named ‘Dignity and Respect Care Home of the Year’ at the National Care Awards
“As a family member you want to know that the care home you chose ensures that the safety and health needs of your loved ones are met but most importantly you’ll want to know that we are committed to our residents happiness and passionate about offering the most dignified compassionate care of the highest standard that ultimately supports the whole family giving everyone peace of mind.”
The home are exceptionally proud of the 11 local and national awards they have received this year that recognise their commitment to care and their residents including one for Paul Dixon, Hospitality and Activities Manager at Mill House who was also hugely honoured to receive ‘Dementia Care Champion of the Year’ at the National Dementia Care Awards 2019, in late November where judges again praised his ‘genuine out of the box attitude and forward thinking’ and referred to him as ‘inspirational.’
Though Paul had never worked in the care sector before and has only spent 15 months employed in his first role at Mill House, his natural compassion and drive has seen him enhance lives, and become an exceptional ambassador not just for Mill House and Caring Homes but for the industry too, with his out of the box inspirational attitude he has made the home the heart of the community.
