Proud To Care Award!

We are thrilled to announce that Redcroft care home won the ‘Innovation In Care’ award at The Daily Echo’s Proud To Care Awards.

Redcroft’s registered manager and team created an entire cookery book in Braille, as featured here on our blog. Working with an individual for whom cookery is a loved pastime, all of her favourite recipes are now fully accessible to her in her own Braille cook books!

The Daily Echo said of the awards, “Now in their third year, The Daily Echo Proud to Care Awards are an amazing opportunity for our readers to tell us about all those locally that are doing a fantastic job in care, both paid and unpaid. The judges were very moved by the stories they read in the hundreds of nominations received and found it very difficult to choose who to shortlist and the final winners.”

Sharron Eyears, registered manager at Redcroft, told us “I collected the Proud To Care Award For Innovation on behalf of Redcroft.” She added, “I am so proud to be the leader of such an outstanding, dedicated and caring staff team who go the extra mile without thinking about it.”

Also a finalist in the awards for the ‘Carer Award’ was Dawn Salmon of Apple House care home. Dawn’s nominees, family members of people she supports, submitted wonderful commendations about Dawn including: “Dawn gives 200% to the service her colleagues and the people she supports and is so deserving of this wonderful recognition as an award finalist.”

    What a brilliant day we had at the award ceremony, I was quite emotional when Sharron picked up the award, well done to Redcroft, I was also pleased to represent Apple, we are a small company with big ambitions, and just to be nominated when we are up against big companies is an achievement in itself.
