Widow puts care home forward for recognition

Have your say

Sheffield’s Springwood Care Home has been nominated for an award for the excellent care provided on its specialist dementia unit.

The Sheffield Carers’ Trust is marking Carers’ Week with a Town Hall awards ceremony on June 13. And the whole team at Springwood’s Daisy Way dementia unit has been nominated by Madeleine Doherty, the widow of Springwood resident Douglas Doherty.

“This is a fantastic accolade and we are all very excited,” said Anita Bland, manager of the Herries Road home operated by Sheffcare.

“The fact that we have been nominated by somebody who has first hand experience of the levels of care we insist on at Springwood means so much to us and we can’t thank Mrs Doherty enough for thinking of us in this way.”
