The team at Deanwood Manor EMI Nursing Home in Orrell, Wigan recently attended the Wigan and Leigh Hospice Awards Ceremony, which recognises excellence in end of life care, and won an award for the most improved care home in Wigan.
Karen McGrady, home manager (pictured centre) said, “This means such a lot to myself and the team as we have worked really hard to change the negative reputation that the home had, particularly within the hospice and within Wigan.
During the night, we were also informed that we had been granted monies from Wigan Council towards converting the courtyard in the property to become a dementia friendly environment”. Jane Whittle (pictured right), a senior care worker at Deanwood Manor was also a winner when she was crowned dignity champion.
Congratulations to Karen and the team at Deanwood Manor Nursing Home.
