At an awards ceremony at the Copthorne Hotel Effingham on 18th November 2022, the Surrey Care Awards 2022 was attended by the great and the good across Surrey’s social care sector. Organised by the Surrey Care Association and hosted by Sylvie Blackmore from BBC Surrey, the team from The Burlington were treated to a night of festivity as the 12th annual awards celebrated the unrivalled dedication of care professionals and care providers across Surrey.

For the prestigious Care Home of the Year award, judges were looking for settings that were continually delivering great care and were innovative with purpose. Judges looked for examples that showed residents had access to friends, family and activities, examples of the service responding to feedback and for services showing a culture that gave people trust in the provision.

When reviewing the nomination for The Burlington, the judges noted that they “really liked reading about the Dementia Support Group set up for families and the dedication of team for delivering this.”

It was also said that “championing best practice” such as providing alternative menus and support for those who were not comfortable with group activities was also “highly evidenced.”

One judging panel member specifically praised The Burlington saying; “Kindness, dignity and respect for everyone shone through this nomination and is at the heart of what they do.”
