A Care Home Manager from Bradford has received a top accolade in the Great British Care Awards.

Home Manager, Mishel Ingle, from Anchor’s Ashcroft care Home on Kelvin Way, was thrilled to be crowned the winner of the regional event of the national competition.

Mishel, who has worked at Ashcroft for 2 and half years, won the category for Care Home Registered Manager Award across Yorkshire & Humberside.

Staff and residents from the care home were celebrating her win this week but were not surprised she had been recognised for their commitment to providing high quality care.

Mishel will now attend the grand final in London where she will find out if they have won the national title.

Ashcroft’s District Manager Teri Kirk said everyone at the home was pleased Mishel had won first prize in the competition.

She said: “This award means that Mishel has been recognised nationally for the great work she does.

“Mishel is a valued member of staff who is committed to making our residents happy by providing person-centred care.

“I am so pleased as this puts Ashcroft’s name on the map and highlights the dedicated members of staff who work here.”

Winner Mishel said she couldn’t believe she had won the regional final. She will now go on to the national final of the Great British Care Awards which will be held in London.

She said: “I was shocked when they called out my name. I love working at Ashcroft and I absolutely love my job so it is amazing to be recognised for something that comes naturally to me. Ashcroft is a wonderful home so this is for all of the staff and residents living there as much as it is for me.

The staff all recognise how much our residents have given to society, we want to celebrate their lives and support them to have as much fun as possible whilst ensuring that they feel safe and comfortable in their home.”
