Care home named one of Top 20 Care Homes in East of England in annual awards
A Fenland care home is celebrating after being named one of the top care homes in the East of England.
The Gables at Chatteris was named in the top 20 in the recent Carehome.co.uk awards which celebrates homes and providers throughout the region and across the country.
The awards are merit-based, and take into account the reviews of residents and their loved ones across the last 18 months - the 2021 awards take into account reviews posted up until June 30 2021. Any more recent reviews displayed on Carehome.co.uk profiles were not considered for the judging.
The Gables Care Home in Chatteris is described as a home full of love and laughter with a smiley resident group who are always up for having some fun, and a staff team who are never too busy to put in the extra effort and go above and beyond expectations.
A spokesperson for the Gables said: "We feel this is reflected by this achievement, which rewards them for their best practices and person-centred care. This award is always very poignant for our staff group as it is a direct result of the commitment, passion, dedication and care that the team show within their roles every day.
"We feel it is even more poignant to receive this award after the impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on the industry as a whole, as it demonstrates our ability to keep our residents loved ones informed and involved with our decision making process, as well as highlighting the superb care provided by the staff in the home.
"We are incredibly lucky to have such a passionate and driven team within the home, led by our fabulous registered manager Julie Tyler.
Julie was over the moon to receive the award, she said: “This is the fourth year running The Gables has received the Top 20 award and we are so thrilled!
“I’m sure every care home in the country will agree this has been one of the most difficult and trying times for our residents, their families and our staff.
“I am so proud of how we have all worked together as a team and had the support of everyone around us to enable us to once again receive such a prestigious award. We are incredibly proud of each and every one of you."
