Against worthy competition in all the categories, Avery scooped up arguably the most significant award of Best Larger Care Group! We also took the awards for Best Sporting, Social or Leisure Activities, based upon our innovative approach Well-being programme, Best Nutrition, Food and the Dining Experience, and finally Best Training Initiative.
Sharon Winfield, Chief Operating Officer, commented “It was absolutely amazing to sweep the board at the Care Home Management Awards for 2018, and to win some of the really important categories such as Best Large Care Home Group. This is testament to the consistent hard work and dedication of all of the Avery staff, no matter what role they have within the company, which all goes towards providing our residents with the best in care and hotel quality services”.
