“GOING THE EXTRA MILE”
University Hospitals NHS Building Healthier Lives
SOLIHULL SUPPORT TO CARE HOME TEAMS CONFERENCE 2019
Swallows Meadow Court won the “Going the Extra Mile” Award in recognition of staff working over and above their job roles in the development of the Bluebird Tea Room and the transformation of the garden.
Mrs Cathy Twilton was the main driving force behind the makeover of the garden and she worked tirelessly on the planning, raising funds and organising teams of volunteers to achieve our objective. Cathy and her team have continued to maintain the garden and she has since joined the Board of Directors of Solihull Care Limited.
The Activities Team, Danielle Dowling, Cheryl Pegg and Mehru Mirza, provided a Power point presentation to the Conference on the recent creation of the Bluebird Tea Room and Registered Nurse Anne Catchpole presented photographs and a plan of the work in the garden that she and Team Leader Rebecca Brown had achieved; Rebecca was also involved in redecorating the Tea Room.
All of the volunteers and staff who were involved in both of the projects are to be congratulated on their achievements, which have proved to be of great benefit to our residents, their loved ones and visitors and also to our staff.
WELL DONE EVERYONE
