In association with care industry-specific magazine, Care Home Management, The Care Home Awards, are a celebration of innovation and excellence across care homes in the UK and recognise the very best achievements in the care industry.

Helen McGowan, Manager of Dearnevale and Bernadette Hinchliffe, Regional Director of Operations attended the ceremony on behalf of Exemplar Health Care on Thursday 27 June at the Platinum Suite at Excel London. The awards are held as part of the annual Health and Care Show and are judged by a panel of independent, high profile judges from across the sector.
