THE DEDICATED team at the Royal Star and Garter in Solihull has been recognised with a prestigious national award.
Staff working in the dementia care families at the home which cares for veterans and their partners living with disability or dementia have been honoured with a Chief Nurse for Adult Social Care Team Award.
The award recognises the exceptional efforts of the adult social care workforce, and home manager Jamie Stubbs received a trophy before an online presentation by the Chief Nurse for Adult Social Care, Professor Deborah Sturdy.
The announcement was made during Professional Care Workers Week, which runs from September 18 to 22 and coincided with World Alzheimer’s Day on September 21.
Prof Sturdy said during her presentation to Jamie: “It’s a great pleasure to be giving the Royal Star and Garter dementia care team in Solihull this award, for all that they do for their residents.
“One of the great things about my role is celebrating social care colleagues who go above and beyond to deliver exceptional care.
“It is no mean feat to achieve this award in the complex area of dementia care and support.”
Julie’s father is living with dementia and is cared for at the Solihull Home. She said: “Nothing compares to Royal Star and Garter.
“I know dad’s safe and well looked after. I can’t imagine what it would have been like had he not been at Royal Star and Garter. I think the home is brilliant.”
The Solihull home was rated as Outstanding in all five areas during its last Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection.
