Dawlish care home wins two awards

Staff at a care and nursing home in Dawlish were delighted to win two prestigious care awards in the space of just a few days.

They were named ‘Care Team of the Year’ in the national Caring UK Awards.

And the manager of Sefton Hall, Gabriela Ogreanu, was surprised with an award for Exceptional Leadership from the South West Academic Health Science Network.

She said; “The leadership award was presented unexpectedly during a training webinar. I am thrilled to have been recognised in this way. I am also so pleased for the team to have won the Care Team of the Year award. But our best achievement as a home is to see our residents, their families and friends giving such good feedback from the service they are receiving – especially in the past two years of the pandemic. It’s good to hear from them that they feel there is a high level of care and that they feel valued, listened to and that their views matter.”
