Care award finalists with their certificates

Two of our star employees are celebrating having won awards in the prestigious Great British Care Awards, Eastern Region.

Gerardine Church, Manager of our extra care scheme, Kingfisher Court, won the Dignity in Care category, recognising her passion for people and ensuring they are involved, have a voice and are truly respected through every aspect of their care and housing.

Gerardine Church receiving her awardSenior Care Worker, Sam Fearon, won the Frontline Leaders Award.  The judges saw that Sam’s enthusiasm for her role really shines through, and her leadership skills have resulted in many positive benefits for Cross Keys Care.

We are currently celebrating the fifth anniversary of our care service and in that time it has become Peterborough’s largest provider of independent living solutions, offering two extra care schemes, care for people in their own homes and the LifeLine emergency alarm system. Our person centred care puts the client’s needs at the heart of the service and is able to combine technology and traditional personal care to ensure people are able to live the life they want, in their own home.

Sam Fearon receiving her awardClaire Higgins, our Chief Executive said of the award wins: “Cross Keys Care is dedicated to excellence in all we do, and it is fantastic to have this commitment recognised. To win these awards is an amazing achievement for the team and a great reward for all their hard work in making Cross Keys Care a service to be proud of. I am very proud to have Gerardine and Sam as part of our team”

Gerardine and Sam will now go forward to the national awards, later in the year.
