Norfolk Care Awards: Nightingale Lodge Highly Commended

Background Image

Nightingale Lodge didn’t bag the title for best person-centred care at the Norfolk Care Awards – but they’re winners to us!

Sandra Rowe has been manager of Nightingale Lodge for over two decades, and has taken the home from strength to strength under her leadership; building a brilliant team of dedicated staff who are always willing to put in the extra effort.

We couldn’t be prouder of Sandra and the team for achieving an ‘Outstanding Overall’ in their latest report from the Care Quality Commission last year – making them one of only nineteen in Norfolk and Waveney.

Despite not winning the award, our team were very happy to receive a highly commended award which will sit proudly in the home, taking centre stage. To even be nominated in the Norfolk Care Awards is an enormous honour and we’re very grateful to have been a part of the splendid evening.

We had a fantastic time being entertained and hosted by the talented singer/comedian Siobhan Phillips who you may recognise from Britain’s Got Talent 2019.

We couldn’t be prouder of our brilliant team at Nightingale Lodge and we want them to know that they’re winners to us.
