Green Tree Court has won the ‘Care Home of the Year’ category at the 20th National Care Awards 2018.

The awards are an annual event organised by Caring Times, to celebrate the very best people in the care sector, by highlighting excellence and rewarding those who work tirelessly to provide consistently outstanding care.

Michelle Gorringe, Managing Director of Green Tree Court, said:

“Winning the coveted ‘Care Home of the Year’ at the National Care Awards was quite simply the icing on the cake. When myself and business partner, Stephen, designed the Home and the care concept, our vision was to create a Home that perfectly combined high-standard luxury living standards and clinical care. Having achieved our outstanding CQC report, Stirling Gold for Dementia Care and now Care Home of the Year, we are simply thrilled.

“I would like to personally thank the Home Director Helen, David Barenskie, Head of Dementia, Sarah Cundall – Head of Care and every single staff member for their contribution to winning this award. I am privileged to work with such an inspiring, caring and compassionate team, who ensure that our residents enjoy excellent food, live in a safe and caring environment and quite simply, deliver a care service that is exceptional.”

Helen Rushton, Home Manager of Green Tree Court, attributes its ongoing success to its hardworking team of expert-trained healthcare professionals.

“Winning the Care Home of the Year title was the perfect end to November, the month within which we also celebrated our fourth birthday. Green Tree Court is something I’m extremely proud to be a part of and this recent win is a true reflection of everything the team has worked so hard for and how incredible they are with our wonderful residents, day-in, day out.”

The judges were in agreement: All the key indicators that signify an outstanding home were exceeded. Staffing levels, training opportunities, technological development, community engagement, being well-led and having a holistic approach underpins their genuine and authentic approach to outstanding care.”

Winners of the National Care Awards were presented with their trophies by host Jon Culshaw at the high-profile Gala Night held on Friday, 30th November at the Hilton London Metropole attended by over 700 guests.
