Boutique Care Homes’ The Burlington, Shepperton, has been awarded the prestigious Care Home of the Year Award at the 2022 Surrey Care Awards.
Organised by the Surrey Care Association and hosted by Sylvie Blackmore from BBC Surrey, the 12th annual Surrey Care Awards 2022 awards ceremony was held at the Copthorne Hotel Effingham on 18 November.
According to the chair of the Surrey Care Association, Simon Carter, “the quality of the finalists is truly inspirational and illustrates perfectly how our workforce continue to deliver the best possible care.”
For the prestigious Care Home of the Year award, judges were looking for settings that were continually delivering great care and were ‘innovative with purpose’, with examples showing that residents had access to friends, family, and activities, that the service responded to feedback, and could demonstrate a culture that gave people trust in the provision.
When reviewing the nomination for The Burlington, the judges noted that they “really liked reading about the Dementia Support Group set up for families and the dedication of the team for delivering this.” They also found that “championing best practice” - such as providing alternative menus and support for those who were not comfortable with group activities - was “highly evidenced.”
Ameet Kotecha, founder and head of the Boutique Care Homes Family, said that the award was “a true reflection of all the hard work put in by everyone. I feel truly blessed to be surrounded by such inspirational team”
Emma Dudhee, who has been the home manager at The Burlington since its launch said: “Congratulations! This is very well deserved; we have a truly amazing team.”
Mihail Gafincu, deputy manager at The Burlington, said: “This is amazing. I am so proud to be part of the team. Well done team The Burlington!”
Priya Bhayani, quality director at Boutique Care Homes added: “Big congratulations Team Burlington! Very well-deserved award for a very special, caring and dedicated team.”
