All four members of staff were worthy winners and there were huge rounds of applause when Miss Lobb and Mrs Nancarrow-Allen won their categories.
‘To win in these Awards, which attracts such strong competition, is true recognition of all the hard work that goes on at Eventide’ says Mrs Nancarrow-Allen, Registered Manager. In her acceptance speech she mentioned 'there were four worthy winners at the Awards ceremony and another 30 back at Eventide’.
All the staff are very committed to making a difference in the lives of all our residents. During such troubled times in Health & Social Care the people of Liskeard can be proud of the Home they purchased over 65 years ago to house war widows and people of limited means.
Last year Eventide celebrated 65 years of trading as a stand-alone, not for profit, care home. It was honoured by a visit from Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England who was very impressed with Eventide’s CQC report and achieving the overall ‘outstanding’ rating. He commented, ‘You are exemplars in care and you can all be proud of the work you do and the difference you are making to people’s lives.
Eventide, in its 66th year continues to improve the home by creating 3 more en-suite facilities to existing bedrooms and a new hairdressing salon.
All staff, management, committee members and residents are delighted and proud of Eventide’s most recent success.
