Pilgrims View care home shortlisted for the Kent Care Awards with the help from resident Joan.

Staff from Pilgrims View care home in Snodland, have recently been shortlisted for the 2018 Kent Care Awards. Three staff including Home Manager John Ogbe and Joan, a resident at Pilgrims View, spent the afternoon with a panel of judges at the Ashford International hotel on Thursday 21 June.

Joan had been involved at the very start of the award process when staff included her with the written entry form, she was thrilled when staff invited her to join them to meet the judging panel and share her experience and time at Pilgrims View.

Staff commented, ‘Joan had a wonderful time and loved having her photo being taken. After the judging panel we treated Joan to a hot chocolate and cake so she could tell us what she thought of the experience’.

Home Manager John Ogbe commentedWe met with a panel of four people whom asked us a series of questions about the care service we provide for our residents. We were delighted and proud to let Joan speak personally about her time at Pilgrims View and what she thought of the care she received’

Joan’s involvement was so positive and she had a lot to contribute. We are delighted to announce we have now been shortlisted for The Care Team Award, which Joan played an integral part in and of course will be joining us at the September award gala evening.

This award is a team award and I would like to thank the whole care team for all their hard work and effort for us getting this far, we will have our fingers crossed for the awards night in September!’
