The judge for the category, Resident Experience Manager Lucy Tomlinson said of Steve that “Steve puts residents at the centre of his planning, making sure there are a variety of activities, each a reflection on what residents truly enjoy. Steve is committed to his work, understanding that structure and consistency is required to enrich lives and bring out the value of meaningful activities, for not only the residents at the home, but their loved ones, their friends and family and neighbours in the community. Some of the feedback Steve received thanked Steve for his positive enthusiasm and commitment he brings to the day to day life of residents, staff, visitors and families. Steve leaves each person he meets with a shining impression, and he is an asset to the home and to Barchester.”
