Shocked staff at The Old Vicarage Care Home, Newcastle Avenue, were presented with the rose on Tuesday 19th February.
A woman whose mother is a resident at the home, said: “The staff are so very caring, they treat all of the residents.”
“They work very long hours and are never off their feet.”
“A lot come in on their days off in an emergency.”
“They try to keep a jolly atmosphere in difficult circumstances,”
“The manager and deputy managers also help out the residents family if you have a problem, even if not related to the home.”
Manager at The Old Vicarage Care Home, Pauline Clews, said: “It was very lovely to receive the award.”
“It is an honour that we have received it.”
“The residents were a little bit excited and were asking lots of questions.”
“I could not do my job without my staff, they are wonderful.”
