Blenheim Court care home ‘highly commended’ at NAPA awards

Caring Homes’ Blenheim Court in Liss, Hampshire, has won the ‘highly commended’ category at the NAPA (National Activity Providers Association) awards.

NAPA, the UK’s leading activity and engagement charity, created The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Care Setting of The Year Challenge to recognise and reward care services who went above and beyond to celebrate the Jubilee.

While the NAPA Awards usually only reward first place, the judges were impressed by Blenheim Court and duly created a ‘highly commended’ category specifically for the home.

The judges said: “We felt the need to create a ‘highly commended’ category to acknowledge the wonderful work of Blenheim Court, among the hundreds of entries this one really did shine. Of particular note was the teamwork demonstrated by all involved. Congratulations!”

Samantha Booty, Blenheim Court’s home manager, said: “When we received the phone call we were overjoyed. Although we had not won the overall main prize of £1000, we had been awarded an additional prize and we were just as ecstatic to have received a ‘highly recommended’ certificate.

“We know how difficult the selection process is for such awards and to receive the ‘additional award’ was special to us all. The news of the award quickly spread around the home and the company with many congratulations heading our way.

“The award was seen as extremely positive and a reward for the continuous effort everyone in the home makes towards improving the wellbeing of our residents. The prize will definitely be utilised to enhance all the activities for the residents over the coming months and we are already looking forward to that special time at the end of the year.”
