“The transformational workshop was just fantastic. Entering the home on the first day after the event, was like walking into a different home, people were smiling and laughing, being nice to each other and helping each other out. This translated directly onto the service the residents received. Several residents asked if we had secretly replaced the staff with look-alikes. There was a new energy in the home, one of excitement and optimism. We were on top of the world and we could change the home and make it a great place to live and work.

It truly was a transformation. I am so proud of what we have achieved since our time with Georgeanne; we use the tools for change regularly and these have helped us move through the inevitable difficulties that arise when you are running a home.”

Andrew G Mattocks-Lewis, Care Home Manager, Holland Park
