A big congratulations to our general manager, Jan Wilkins, who has been named the region’s top care home manager in the industry’s leading care awards.
Jan, who has led the home since 2011, was selected as the Registered Manager of the Year at the South West heats of the Great British Care Awards. The event was held recently at the Passenger Shed, Brunel’s Old Station in Bristol.
The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events held throughout England to celebrate excellence across the care sector. The regional awards lead to national finals.
Bristol-born Jan has worked in nursing all her career and has overall responsibility for residents, staff and Riversway Nursing Home itself.
Staff members Terri Fisher, Matthew Reed and Rachel Smith were also shortlisted in the awards.
Jan said: “It’s such an honour to be recognised by your peers in this way, and it shows that the hard work being done every day by all the staff at Riversway really is industry leading.
“I have a great team working with me and this award really is down to the tireless commitment of everyone to providing the highest levels of care possible.”
