Chawley Grove Scoop Top National Award
Residents and staff at our Oxford care home are celebrating after scooping a prestigious award for best new care home.
The awards, which saw record numbers of entries this year, included judges from Care England as well as leading healthcare providers across the sector.
The Care Home Awards recognise excellent care, business success and also emotional engagement, empathy and sympathy.
Home Manager Theresa Whitford said the Care Home Award was a huge credit to the team.
She said: “We are delighted to have won the overall prize in the Best New Care Home category.
“This is all testament to our wonderful residents, their supportive families and the fantastic team we are lucky enough to have.
“Thank you also to the community for welcoming us as a new home and in particular for being so supportive through the last few months, which have been a challenge for everyone.
“The award offers us great cheer and the confidence that we can go forward and continue to provide the very best care for our residents as well as excellent support for families.”
And it’s double the joy for our Oxfordshire home because in January, less than a year after opening we announced that Chawley Grove had achieved a 9.9/10 rating on carehome.co.uk – the leading review site for care, residential and nursing homes.
Our 70-bed home opened in May 2019 providing residential, dementia and nursing care. It also provides short breaks for the elderly, all in a luxury setting.
It is the first home in Oxfordshire to offer the award-winning Homemakers care model, a holistic approach to care which allows care professionals to work as carers, housekeepers and provide companionship for residents.
Homemakers work in collaboration with the clinical team ensuring they can provide continuity of care.
Chawley Grove combines boutique hotel interior design with leading-edge dementia and innovative specialist care.
As well as offering a beauty salon, haircuts and styling as part of a wellbeing and lifestyle programme, it offers menus tailored to individual tastes, an elegant café offering gourmet food and a well-stocked bar.
