TWO workers from a Rotherham care home are in the running for a national award.
Lisa Glynn and Lisa Webster, activity coordinators for Cherry Trees Nursing Home in Kimberworth Park, have been jointly shortlisted in the activity organiser category in the Great British Care Awards.
Lisa and Lisa were put through to the finals after demonstrating to judges that they provide a needs-led, varied, and appropriate programme for care home residents.
They were responsible for the home being awarded Orchard Care Homes’ internal Centre of Activity Excellence accolade, and have played a key role in organising an annual carol service, and annual garden party at the home.
The two Lisa have also established a relationship between residents and Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Eva Rose Keenan, whom they regularly invite to the home to talk to residents and have afternoon tea.
“We are delighted that the positive work Lisa and Lisa do has been recognised and that they have been shortlisted as finalists,” said home manager Sharron Whaley.
“They are both valued members of the team who have worked together to implement a programme of activities that is both entertaining, and person-centred, as well as playing a key role in engaging residents with their local community.”
The awards event takes place on Thursday, November 23 in Leeds.
