Celebrating Excellence: Activities Lead wins National Care Award

Amica Care is thrilled to share the exciting news that our very own Ben Line, Activities Lead at St John's Court, has been recognised as the Care Activities Co-ordinator/Facilitator of the Year at the 25th National Care Awards in London last Friday. Sponsored by TLC Care, this prestigious accolade honors individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the quality of life, health, and happiness of those they support through outstanding activities.

Ben Line's commitment to creating unforgettable memories for the residents at St John's Court has set him apart. From transforming the living room into a nostalgic 1950's diner to crafting a Dickensian street during Christmas, Ben's creativity knows no bounds. He has even brought the beach experience to St John's Court, covering the front lawn with sand. Ben's efforts go above and beyond, enriching the lives of our residents through unique and thoughtful activities.

The National Care Awards are the largest and most respected awards in the social care sector. They recognise professionals who provide exceptional care and exemplary service.
