At the heart of the community

With the care sector under increasing pressure to meet the needs of a growing senior population, it’s more important than ever to celebrate the efforts of those who give their all to better the lives of others and contribute to their local communities.

Coming up in April, our CEO Jane Hayward will be attending the Orchard ‘Heart Awards’, an event which we’re proud to be involved in sponsoring.

Following a successful inaugural year in 2018 the awards are returning once again in recognition of Orchard Care Homes’ own staff – applauding the achievements of individuals who excel in a range of areas that are integral to the delivery of exceptional standards in high-quality care.

Orchard Care Homes is rapidly developing a reputation as an employer of choice. These awards reflect one of the ways in which the company is working to attract and employ the best staff and to give something back to them at the same time, making them feel appreciated.

“In any service setting it’s the people that make the difference,” Jane commented. “That’s what makes these awards so pertinent and relevant. In celebrating commitment to hard work, talent and expertise, Orchard Care Homes is also successfully showcasing a number of innovative ideas and approaches that are driving positive change in care standards. We really are privileged to support such a worthy initiative.”

Amongst others, the twelve categories include Carer of the Year, Care Home of the Year, Rising Star, Catering Hero, the Good Nursing Award and the CEO Choice – a special award for the employee who has gone above and beyond during their time at Orchard Care Homes.

Having already dipped into her wardrobe and selected one of her most fabulous outfits, Jane tells us she’s really looking forward to celebrating with the winners and finalists at the glittering black tie dinner taking place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Leeds on 4th April.
