Bluebird Care Croydon are celebrating after winning two main awards along with six finalist awards at the Great London British Care Awards 2017, which took place on Saturday 11th November at the Hilton Bankside Hotel in London.
The team were up against all home care companies in Greater London for this major care awards event which received over 4000 entries. The awards are part of the Great British Care Awards, a series of 9 regional awards celebrating excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards is to promote best practice within both home care and care homes sectors, and pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
Kim Keohane was the WINNER of the Frontline leader’s award
The Frontline Leader Award recognises the person who has shown exceptional entrepreneurial skills in identifying, developing, implementing and establishing a new service; or a new administrative system; or the launch of a new product. This new innovation must demonstrate benefits for staff, the business and users of the service.
Commenting on her success, Kim said:
The Dementia Carer Award is given to an individual who can reflect the specific skills needed to manage and deliver services sensitive to the needs of older people with dementia, and which reflects an awareness of the provider organisation that investment in this type of service provision will meet increasing demand in the future.

They employ over 70 local care staff which has provided a great number of new jobs to the Croydon area.
