Proud winners of The Daily Sparkle Competition July 2018
Silverpoint Court Residential Care Home are proud supporters and users of the The Daily Sparkle – a reminiscence newspaper specially developed to provide daily stimulation, interest, enjoyment and fun for older people and people living with dementia.
The newspaper ran a national ‘Activities for All’ competition back in May, which aimed to celebrate Activities Staff who go ‘above and beyond’ to prevent isolation and boredom in Care Homes and engage residents who don’t always want to join in with group activities. Silverpoint Court’s Lynda Spellacy and Amanda Lee received a ‘highly commended’ in recognition of their dedication to their roles.
Daily Sparkle’s July competition focused on good practice and preparing for a CQC inspection. Jacqui Shuttleworth, Manager at Silverpoint Court, entered Lynda and Amanda again – highlighting the impressive range of activities they co-ordinate for their residents, their ability to meet the needs of individuals and their dedication to good practice within their roles.
We are delighted that Lynda and Amanda were chosen as one of the winners for July, which is a fantastic result for a national competition with entries from across the UK!
Alice Clough from The Daily Sparkle commented:
“We received some very high quality entries, but I am happy to say that you are among our 3 winners of £50! We chose your entry because of the selection of practical tips you offered, as well as the focus on being flexible in response to the residents’ needs.”
Martin Barrett (Managing Director) and Glenda Osmotherly (Director of Operations) personally congratulated Jacqui and her team for their impressive entry and commitment to their residents’ wellbeing.
Well done to Lynda and Amanda – your hard work really shines through!
