A company which runs a care home in Arnold is celebrating after three of its staff made the shortlist for awards which recognise the best carers in the East Midlands.
The staff from Ernehale Lodge, which is run by Milford Care, have made the shortlist in three categories in the Great East Midlands Care Awards, part of the Great British Care Awards.
Caroline Kirk has been shortlisted for a Dementia Carer Award; Teresa Rigby has been nominated for the Palliative Care/End of Life Award and Julie Jepson is up for the Good Nurse Award.
The finalists will each be interviewed at the end of October and the winners will be presented with their award at a special ceremony on November 19 at The Nottingham Belfry hotel.
Last year Milford Care won the Care Employer award after judges recognised the company’s commitment to staff and the individuals they support. Staff from the homes also won awards in three other categories.
Sam Palmer, at the Milford Care group, said: “We are delighted to have 20 of our staff in the finals of these prestigious awards. We hope to come home with at least one award as all of our staff are outstanding at what they do.”
Milford Care also has homes in Belper, Milford, Ashbourne, Alfreton and Hucknall.
