HENDRA House in Ludlow has been nominated for awards in the care home sector.

The care home in Sandpits Road has been selected because of their commitment to investing in staff.

All the finalists have demonstrated their expertise in recruiting the right people, how they develop their staff to meet the needs of the people they support and can demonstrate leadership and management best practice.

“Everyone at the home is so proud that we have made the shortlist for this prestigious national award that recognises the time and effort we have invested in up skilling our staff who are our biggest asset,” said Vince Burmingham, owner of Hendra House.

“All the people we work with are also delighted for the team and are keeping their fingers crossed we can bring home the national prize to complement another national award which we won last month.”
