Achieve together’s Roseville House, a residential home that supports six people with learning disabilities, autism and additional complex needs, in Wem, Shropshire, has won Care Home Team of the year at last night’s award ceremony for the West Midlands Region.
The purpose of the awards is to pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work. The team won due to their dedication and commitment to the people we support by going above and beyond to promote wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic and putting the needs of the people they support above their own.
Roseville’s Service Manager, Jake Allen, shares his views on the home and some of the wonderful initiatives that were carried out during the pandemic, “Roseville House team have always had a family feel to it, where everyone is involved in everything. The people we support are supported to be independent and successful in an inclusive and empowering environment. The team recreated some important activities during the pandemic for those living at Roseville including a sports day, vegetable market, a barber shops and clapping for carers with a trumpet being played outside!”
Jake reflects on the award ceremony and what made receiving the award even more memorable “What made winning the award even more special was that one of the people we support at Roseville was at the ceremony and collected the award with the team in front of hundreds of people.”
In addition to Care Home team of the year, Roseville House was shortlisted for two additional awards: Rachel Boulter for the Ancillary Worker category and Jake Allen in the Care Home Registered Manager category.
A great night was had by all, we are incredibly proud of the whole team at Roseville House.
