The team at Neale Court Care Home in Lincoln have been celebrating their annual Country Court Staff Awards this week. The awards were presented by Country Court Co-CEO Alykhan Kachra and Chairman Abdul Kachra who were delighted to attend the award ceremony in person. In 2020 the lockdown meant the awards had to be presented virtually.
“The Country Court Board of Directors are delighted to attend the staff awards at our care and nursing homes in person this year.” Said Alykhan Kachra, Co-CEO. “We are very proud of our staff teams and the awards are a great opportunity to celebrate and thank everyone. We have amazing care staff in our homes, they work incredibly hard every day to make a huge difference to the lives of our residents. We are very proud of how our staff teams continue to face the challenges of the pandemic with tenacity and unending cheerfulness.”
There were over 1000 nominations across the group from staff and residents and their families. Yet again it was clear how much families appreciated the efforts of staff to keep their loved ones safe and how much the team in the care home had supported each other throughout the pandemic.
Winners at Neale Court Care Home in Lincoln were Chef Manager Gary Wilson who won the Care Hero Award. Wellbeing Coordinator Becky Bourke won the Our Values Award and Team Member of the Year was Senior Carer Helen Foster. Nominating Becky for an award one member of staff commented “Becky works tirelessly to ensure residents have a good quality of life. She takes time to spend time with each individual resident to understand their background and what they enjoy.” Another staff member commented “Her enthusiasm is clear to see, always so cheerful.”
The awards go to staff who have gone above and beyond to exemplify the family values at the heart of each Country Court home. The Board of Directors review all of the nominations and select three winners for each care home in the Country Court Group.
