We are so pleased to announce that some of the staff at Beaumont Manor have been nominated as annual divisional winners. These awards are for staff groups, and individuals who go above and beyond within their roles to provide outstanding experiences and support to our residents. This year Beaumont Manor had three awards which they won in the divisional heats. On the 23rd March 2023 at the company's annual conference, the home will find out if our divisional winners will win the overall award for the whole company.
Beaumont Manor nominated Tammie for this award because she is an exceptional person who goes above and beyond her role as a hostess on our Dementia floor. Tammie started working at Beaumont Manor about 4 years ago as a Care-worker and after a year, due to her health conditions, changed her role to that of Hostess. Tammie truly is a very respected member of our team who makes others her priority and her kindness comes naturally to her. She pays attention to our residents' feelings and respects their needs and nothing is too much trouble.
Tammie is also a very creative person who makes some extraordinary decorations for our residents to enjoy, be it life-size Foot Soldiers, Reindeers’ and Snowmen at Christmas time, to balloon sculptures and hearts at Valentine's, 6ft Candy-cart for our residents with a sweet tooth and numerous Easter decorations. Nothing is too much trouble for Tammie, and it is evident that she gets as much enjoyment out of her creations as our residents get from seeing them.
Tammie should be commended for her care and attentiveness toward our End-of-Life Residents’ and their families. Tammie has even made pillows and decorative keepsakes out of the loved ones’ clothes after they have passed away, for families to keep for remembrance.
Tom joined the Kitchen Team in March 2022 after he dropped out of education due to Covid related issues. When we first interviewed Tom we could see his passion for food which is something he had developed during lockdown. Tom initially started working as a kitchen porter washing up and cleaning. He quickly progressed through the initial training schedule we had compiled and soon became skilled at baking cakes and desserts taking into consideration our residents' dietary requirements. He is regularly complimented on his famous chocolate roulade!
Tom has since gained further confidence and skills within the kitchen that allows his mentor, James the ability to let Tom lead breakfast and lunch service with minimal supervision. He is slowly becoming familiar with the admin side of the role by completing the daily HACCP folder. Tom is undertaking his apprenticeship qualification supported by the company.
We also as a whole home got the divisional award for 'Home of The Year'. This is a huge achievement for all staff from all departments who support all our residents, their families and each other to ensure the care and support we give to our residents is as individual as they are.
We look forward to seeing what the awards night holds for Beaumont Manor.
