Buxton Lodge's Activities Coordinator, Theresa Stanton, has been named as a ‘Leader in Care’ in a prestigious report by leading health and social care sector publication, Care Home Professional.
Theresa Stanton, Activities Coordinator at Buxton Lodge care home, was recognised for her work in delivering innovative and engaging activities for older people which helps them to stay happy, active and healthy. It is the second year in a row Theresa has been named, by Care Home Professional, as one of the top 50 people nationally working in the care sector.
Theresa was praised for her passion, dedication and hard work – with particular acclaim for her efforts in training to become a qualified ‘Dementia Friend’ so that she can work to improve the activities on offer for residents with dementia.
Theresa is now leading the charge at Buxton Lodge to have every single member of staff, from support staff to the senior team, trained as a ‘Dementia Friend’. This compliments the existing in-depth training programme, and will make sure all staff, irrespective of their day-to-day role, can support residents with dementia.
Theresa commented,“ I am delighted and honoured to be named in Care Home Professional’s 2017 Leaders in Care report. I feel very lucky to work with the amazing residents at Buxton Lodge every day, who always bring a smile to my face with their enthusiasm for the activities I organise. I would like to thank them for making my job so much fun, and also thank the staff who work so hard to deliver great care.”
