Three members of the team at a Carebase Care Home, Brooklands Care Home in Norwich, have won the award for Best Care Team in the Great East of England Care Awards, presented at a Gala dinner at the Holiday Inn, Peterborough West on January 13th 2017.

The purpose of the awards is to pay tribute to those individuals and teams who have demonstrated outstanding excellence in their field of work.

The team, who combined have 20 years of service with Brooklands, include team leader, Lorraine Holmes, senior carer, Edgar Ferraris and carer, Matt Levick.

Julia Chapman-Wright, manager of Brooklands said: “This is a well-deserved award. Watching this team in action, it is so evident that they have the utmost respect for our residents and a real understanding of what dignity means.  They always treat residents as individuals.  They are perfect role models for the wider team at Brooklands”.

The award submission particularly noted Lorraine Holme’s inspirational leadership. She brings exceptional care, compassion, respect and appreciation to everything she does and leads by example, making the most of every opportunity to make residents lives special.
