The HC-One of a Kind Awards was the first annual awards ceremony to recognise colleagues who go above and beyond to deliver the kindest, high quality care to residents.

The evening was also an opportunity to celebrate HC-One’s fifth anniversary.

The Home of the Year Award recognises the home, and its colleagues, within the HC-One family who demonstrate exceptional quality care, and have an excellent reputation with residents, their relatives, colleagues and industry stakeholders.

The staff at Bankwood Care Home were recognised as worthy winners for their devotion to every resident’s needs and their understanding of how the home was an integral part of the local community, both within the home and as part of the wider local area.

Bankwood also has a second reason to celebrate as home manager Izeta Hamza was shortlisted for the Home Manager of the Year Award and was highly commended for her achievements and dedication to the home.

HC-One is committed to investing in staff, and has recently been named as a Skills for Care Centre of Excellence.
