The Norfolk Care Awards 2014 took place at a special ceremony at Dunston Hall in Norwich on Thursday night and saw individuals and care homes shortlisted in nine categories.

Willie Cruickshank, director of Norfolk and Suffolk Dementia Alliance, was highly commended in the outstanding achievement award.

This section aimed to highlight an individual or care service which had made a significant contribution to the advancement or development of care practices in their local area.

Mr Cruickshank has spent the last three years supporting individuals, groups and organisations working consistently to advocate for people living with dementia.

He said: “Norfolk has an ageing population with significant growth projected in the number of people over the age of 85. Never before has it been so important that we recognise and celebrate excellence.”

Other award categories were excellent person centred care, delivering excellence through learning and development, bringing people together through activities, motivational leadership, promoting dignity and respect in everyday life, effective coordination of end of life care, innovative dementia friendly environment and team award.

The awards were supported by Norfolk County Council, Norfolk and Suffolk Dementia Alliance, Norfolk Independent Care and English Community Care Association, HealthCare Homes, and N-Able.
