North Norfolk care home wins National Dementia Care Award

NorseCare is delighted to announce that Munhaven care home in Mundesley on the North Norfolk coast has won the Best Dementia Care home category at the 10th National Dementia Care Awards.

The care home on Munhaven Close in the North Norfolk village of Mundesley was rewarded at the event in Doncaster where representatives from the care industry were gathered following the National Dementia Congress earlier in the week.

The home cares for up to 20 people living with dementia and has had an amazing 2019.  In March, they were recognised as one of the top 20 care homes in East Anglia based on recommendations made to the website.

Then in August, following an unannounced, regular CQC inspection, they were rewarded with an Outstanding report with inspectors stating how staff delivered “extremely sensitive and compassionate care” and how staff developed “open and trusting relationships with people and their relatives, maximising the benefit of the care provided.”

At the same awards, Surraya Mahmood, NorseCare’s Activities and Wellbeing Co-ordinator was also a finalist, shortlisted as one of the top 5 in the country in the Best Activities Coordinator for people living with dementia category.
