Notaro Homes staff are celebrating success at the Care & Support West Awards.

Ali Kinsella, a manager at Campania alcohol-related brain damage care home in Ellenborough Park South, received the Disability Care Award while Stuart House residential dementia care home in Clevedon Road was a finalist in the Dementia Care Award category.

The ceremony, held at Ashton Gate, showcased the outstanding work done by companies and individuals in the care sector across North Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

Ms Kinsella said: “I manage the home on a day-to-day basis and ensure high standards are maintained.

“I also look after staff retention and recruitment, and complete assessments and ensure smooth transition into the home.

“I work with the staff and residents on a three-step enablement programme to ensure that residents engage in the activities that they enjoy and lead a fulfilling life while here at Campania.

“I really enjoy working with my residents and seeing them progress.

“A simple smile when they achieve a task is so rewarding.”

Ms Kinsella also works with Avon and Somerset police to provide mental health training to student officers.

Nunzio Notaro, Notaro Homes managing director, added: “The care awards are a fantastic opportunity to highlight and celebrate the exceptional work done by those in the care sector.

“It is these people that truly make a difference to countless people’s lives.

“They are ambassadors for the industry, extolling the very best in care.

“We are incredibly proud to have a winner and a finalist in these awards, and all the directors and management would like to congratulate the individuals and teams involved.”

Sandford Station Retirement Village was also recognised on the night, picking up the Older People Care Award.

David Smallcombe, Care and Support West chief executive, said: “It is important that we regularly tell staff how great they are, and remind them and ourselves that every day they go above and beyond what their various job descriptions and employers ask of them.”
