Care Professional & Key Player of the Year Awards

Celebrating the achievements of the Exeter & East Devon team

December 2023 hosted our final Team Meetings of the year.

These take place seasonally and we do consider them vital, as they offer us a chance to collectively inform colleagues with regard to important procedural updates. They also allow the ability to refresh learning with a focus on a particular topic, which on this occasion were the vital subjects of Safeguarding and the CQC.

Although there are opportunities throughout the year, with Walk & Talk events, Menopause Meetups, Book Groups and more, the Team Meetings are also a valuable chance for our close-knit team to casually catch up with one another. Importantly, they also enable us to acknowledge the dedication and efforts of our wonderful staff members through our annual Awards.

During the Winter Meeting we congratulated those celebrating new work anniversaries, which included an 11 Year Service Award for Laura Grant, our General Manager and Registered Manager (featured in our cover photo, with Vanessa McGlade, Owner/Director, left).

We also announced the winners of our annual Team Awards, voted for by Exeter & East Devon colleagues. It takes a true team to provide the exceptional standard of care that our Company provides, and without question, our Care Professional and Key Player support team colleagues are the shining stars of the show.

Colleagues were invited to vote for a fellow Care Professional that has stood out as a positive force or has done an amazing job during the past year. Equally, if a Key Player has been particularly supportive or welcoming, team members could nominate the office support team member for the Key Player or the Year Award.

For 2023 our worthy winners included:

  • John Allison – Care Professional of the Year for Honiton and surrounding areas
  • Keeley Brewer-Farrant – Care Professional of the Year for Mid Devon and surrounding areas
  • Sue Maida – Care Professional of the Year for Exmouth and surrounding areas
  • Wendy Mann – Care Professional of the year for Exeter and surrounding areas
  • Kate Brown – Top Referrer for 2023
  • Gill Gegg – Key Player of the Year
