Alongside Long Service awards, the team were also lucky enough to receive a ROCK Award which was nominated by 2 of the residents at Kingswood Court. The ROCK award is a nationwide internal honour that specifically highlights the impact a Four Season Health Care employee has made on the lives of people living in one of our care homes. Team members are nominated for an award by residents, their relatives or friends, who have witnessed or experienced staff members demonstrating excellent standards of care and kindness in their role.
Michelle Jefferies, Home Manager, told us “I am completely elated for the team. They totally deserve this kind of recognition as I know first-hand the pride they put into their work. The length of service shows the dedication and commitment they have for Kingswood Court. I am so proud to have such a wonderful team”.
