New Wymondham care home praised at awards

A Wymondham care home, which opened in April, have been honoured by its owners for its achievements in 2011.

Windmill House in Browick Road, Wymondham - owned by Runwood Homes - is a 57 bed care home catering for the elderly requiring residential care and also those suffering from dementia. Despite only opening this year, the home is now full and has a growing waiting list.

The site is part of the Runwood Group of Homes with a head office in Essex and 45 homes spread across five counties in East Anglia and Northern Ireland. Each year the company has an annual conference and an award ceremony for the 'Best Home of the Year' and 'Best Activities'. Windmill House achieved an award of being in the top three homes in the company in both categories.

Liz Fleming, the home manager, said: 'I am delighted for Windmill House to have received these awards in its first year of being open. It is down to the caring philosophy that we have and the commitment, enthusiasm and dedication of all the team in the various roles within the home.'

'I have great carers, who are becoming a close team to provide the highest care possible as well as the staff performing - activities, administration, domestic, catering and maintenance functions.'
