Staff and residents at Adlington Manor Care Home in Macclesfield are celebrating after Unit Manager, Caroline Brierley was named 'Memory Lane Champion' at the Barchester Care Awards 2018.
Caroline Baker, Director of Dementia at Barchester and a judge for the category, said of Caroline that “[she has] demonstrated a real empathic approach to both residents and relatives, and talked of how the Namaste approach had made such a significant difference in the home. Caroline has received high praise from external professionals regarding her knowledge of the residents in her care but also about her calm, professional approach, particularly when she literally dealt with 3 different medical emergencies within the space of half an hour!”
Caroline said of her win that, “I am very proud, and very honoured to be receiving this award. We work hard here at Barchester with a focus on the people we care for, and not for accolades, but it really is very special to be recognised in this way.”
