The Hennell Award winner 2021

A few weeks ago at the University of Worcester graduation the latest winner of the Hennell Award for Innovation and Excellence in Dementia Care was announced. A huge congratulations go to Sue Ashcroft, who is the Approaches to Care Lead for Dementia and Lifestyle Services at Care UK.

Sue with Suzanne Mumford (Head of Nursing, Care and Dementia at Care UK), who nominated her for the award

Sue was a student on the Postgraduate Award: Expert Practice in Delivering Person-Centred Dementia Care, and – despite the pandemic – has trained more than 260 staff in the past year as well as supporting them to feel confident and valued. The judges for the Hennell Award recognised Sue’s outstanding contribution to the development of dementia care at Care UK, and I think we can all agree that it was well-deserved.

Unfortunately, June Hennell who sponsors the award in memory of her late husband Brian was unable to attend graduation in person, but the team made sure she was still part of the event by having her photo on the table!

If you would like to nominate someone (or maybe yourself!) for the next Hennell Award, please see our website for details.

Congratulations Sue!
