We are proud to launch our third Kingsley Care Awards which are intended to showcase and reward the amazing work and dedication of our staff. The awards celebrate excellence in the quality of care we provide by recognising individuals who have made an extra special difference to the lives of those we look after. You are invited to nominate colleagues for their exceptional work or impressive attitude and can select one person in each category.

Here are the most common things we get asked. We hope our answers will help you in your quest.
Nominations are not required for this category. Kingsley’s directors will choose an individual who they feel merits an award but has not been selected in another category.
You will have an impressive toolkit of clinical knowledge but equally as important are your skills of communication. You will be just as much at ease talking to families and residents as other health professionals and you will lead by example, inspiring and encouraging other members of the team.
Through your “go-the-extra-mile” commitment you are recognised by both colleagues and families as a vital link in the chain. Customer service and support are the watchwords in your dealings with staff, residents, families and senior management.
You are a crucial part of the home’s DNA; as well as doing your own job well and showing unflagging support to staff and families, you are recognised as a real team player and a rallying influence who can invariably turn negatives into positives and find solutions.
You are a born leader who demands the highest standards and shows the way by energetically leading from the front. Your success is there to be seen when anyone steps in the door and discovers a happy home and harmonious staff, all working effectively as a team with professionalism and compassion.
You will, of course, have achieved a top hygiene star rating and manage the kitchen to the highest standards of professional competence. However, we are also looking for someone who really takes the trouble to meet the individual food needs of residents and fosters a fun atmosphere both in the kitchen and the dining room.
What you lack in experience you make up for with your dedication to learn the individual needs of each resident; your positive attitude is a breath of fresh air and while you are eager to learn from colleagues you are not afraid to share your own ideas.
You might nominate someone for any number of reasons: Perhaps they have a heart of gold, are fun to work with or are always there for support. The winner will be someone whose personality brings something special to the daily life of colleagues and/or residents and their families.
