The Residential Care Services (RCS) Stars awards recognise individual and team excellence at more than 120 care homes nationwide across Care UK’s RCS division.
Maggie Ziemianska, deputy manager at Manor Lodge, on Manor Road, took home the Deputy Manager of the Year award, one of 20 accolades handed out during the event.
The panel of judges praised Maggie for being a hands-on, effective problem solver who assists in every aspect of home life. However, it was Maggie’s ability to think outside of the box which set her apart from competitors in the category. An example of Maggie truly making a difference was when she recognised the benefits animal therapy for older people, and started bringing her own dog, Toffee, in daily, bringing ‘utter joy’ to residents, relatives and colleagues.
The Chelmsford care home was also highly commended in the ‘Outstanding Leadership’ category at this year’s Essex Care Sector Awards, which took place in November.
Juliana Miles, home manager at Manor Lodge, said: “The RCS award ceremony was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our most inspirational colleagues and shine a light on those who make a real difference to the lives of residents each and every day.
“Here at Manor Lodge, we strive to create a warm, friendly environment where we can support residents to lead active and fulfilling lives – Maggie is integral in ensuring this ethos is shared across the home so we are thrilled that she has won this award. She has been instrumental in ensuring our standards of care remain high, always pushing herself and the team to go and above and beyond. Well done Maggie!”
