Ahead of the ceremony, which is due to take place in Leicester on Thursday, December 7, Anna Owsicka, Home Manager at Lydgate Lodge, which opened in 2010, said:
“I am extremely proud of our team, who all go above and beyond to deliver the best person-centred care to our residents and their loved ones, making Lydgate Lodge the outstanding home it is today.”
The award will be presented to a team who “work to provide the best care and resident experience” and “demonstrates passion and commitment” in their roles.
Vicky Wright, the daughter of a resident who lives in the care home, which is operated by Ideal Carehomes, said:
“The staff are wonderful and show true care and affection towards the residents. Families are also always made to feel welcome and involved.”
83-year-old resident, Vera Bradley, added: “This nomination is so well deserved. The staff are all so kind and caring.”
