Sep 19th, 2014 - Recognition Of Care and Kindness at Manor View Care Home

All the staff at Manor View Care Home in Hatfield, Doncaster were recently presented with the prestigious Four Seasons Health Care ROCK (Recognition Of Care and Kindness) Award for showing an exemplary standard of care towards residents. The ROCK Award is particularly deserved as staff are nominated by relatives and residents. This nomination was made by Mrs Victoria Turner, the daughter of a resident who wanted to show her appreciation for their involvement in the care of her mother while she was a resident at the home. Mrs Turner wanted to thank the staff at Manor View for the care, unfailing strength, love, support, dedication and enthusiasm, not only with residents, but also with the resident’s families.

Mrs Victoria Turner said: “Personally, I will always remain in touch with these 'gems' as they have really been my 'ROCK' in these recent difficult times. I really feel that it would be appropriate if they could be presented with this special award that they so rightly deserve. My mother spent the last three years of her life singing and dancing happily in Manor View and spent her last days under the constant loving care and attention of the staff until it was time for her to go.”

Home Manager, Julie Harrison, said: “This is really appreciated by all staff as it is rewarding for the good care we deliver. The home has been involved in some major changes during the last 12 months since I became home manager and it is a pleasure to see staff who are very passionate in the service we deliver to be recognise by receiving their first ROCK Award.”
