Care Awards

NHI Care Awards

The NHI Care Awards in association with Homecare Medical is the definitive celebration of excellence across the nursing home sector. The awards promote best practice in nursing homes and pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence and dedication within their field of work. The awards reflect the diversity and many facets of nursing home life and recognise not only outstanding staff, but also resident contribution, innovative practice in the delivery of care, and interaction between nursing homes and their local communities.
