A manager and her assistant from Ashlyns Care Home in Berkhamsted scooped two gongs at the Hertfordshire Care Awards 2013 for the work they do with residents suffering from dementia.
Diane Delicate and Kelly Huxtable won the Dementia Champion Manager Award and the Dementia Champion Award respectively.
A delighted Diane said: “I knew Kelly was going to win so I’d kept that a seceret, but I had no idea I had won too, so that was a great surprise.
“It’s a great recognition of the care we provide here, especially as there has been some recent negative press about care homes in general.
“It’s an amazing achievement for the team.”
