Braemar Lodge shortlisted for top national award

Braemar Lodge is a finalist in the ‘Dignity and Respect Care Home of the Year’ category at the National Care Awards, now in their 23rd year
Organised by care industry body, the awards are designed to ‘celebrate the very best people in the long-term care sector, highlighting excellence and rewarding those who work tirelessly to provide consistently outstanding care’.

Home Manager Alison Bremner said: “The shortlisting is testament to our investment in staff and their development.
“It’s all about enabling that sense of loyalty and commitment to the community of Braemar Lodge and being the best we can be.”
Feedback from residents also reflects our home’s success.

105-year-old Iris Stowell, our oldest resident, was among a pop-up choir who recently made a short trip from the home to the city’s Victoria Park for a public performance of songs from the Abba musical Mamma Mia.

Iris said: “We had so much fun. It was brilliant.”

A second Colten Care home, Outstanding-rated Kingfishers in New Milton, Hampshire, is on this year’s shortlist in the category of ‘Care Team’.

Winners of the National Care Awards are due to be announced at a ceremony at the Hilton London Metropole in November 2021.
