Buxton House, on Radipole Lane, was awarded a Star Award in Care South’s annual awards
A WEYMOUTH care home has been recognised for going the extra mile to create a home-from-home for its residents.
Buxton House, on Radipole Lane, was awarded the ‘Pride in our Home’ award at Care South’s annual Star Awards.
The award recognises care homes in the south of England that work hard to create welcoming surroundings and home like atmospheres for residents, family members and employees.
Buxton House residents praised staff for their excellent care and attention to detail, with flowers in the entrance hallways and communal areas, well-kept gardens, tasty food and a varied activities programme.
Janine May, home manager at Buxton House, said: “We are thrilled to be awarded the ‘Pride in our Home’ accolade. Our team works tirelessly to create a warm and inviting home for our residents and we are so proud that our efforts have been recognised and rewarded.
“I would like to congratulate each and every one of my staff for their contribution; their hard work is what makes Buxton House a caring and happy home.”
Staff collected their award at a ceremony held at AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium which also recognised the achievements of over 50 staff who received formal qualifications throughout the year.
Susan Willoughby, chief executive of Care South, said: “Now in their seventh year, the Care South Stars Awards are a highlight of the year. It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the professionalism, passion, and commitment to care that is delivered day in, day out by our staff across the company.
“Once again, we received an incredibly high number of nominations from colleagues, residents and service users. All our finalists and winners should be extremely proud of themselves for the exceptional commitment they have demonstrated to providing the highest quality care for our residents and service users.
“The Awards provide us with the chance to publicly acknowledge and thank our staff for their dedication and hard work, which makes such a huge difference to the lives and wellbeing of those we care for. We should also recognise the immense role teamwork has to play in helping us deliver the best quality care.”
