How many awards do you give out per month?
Musica Music and Wellbeing CIC award a total of one award per month in each territory we operate in. At present, we currently work in the following areas: Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire, Bristol and Surrounds, West Sussex and Hampshire.
Which care homes typically win the achievement award?
We know there are many care homes who deserve recognition. These awards are for those care homes who in our eyes have gone above and beyond when it comes to raising the standard of person-centered care, and embedding music within their care, particularly whilst supporting those living with dementia. Nominated by our Musica Coordinators we are typically looking for homes that;
- Value the importance of music within dementia care
- Celebrate the individuality of people living with dementia
- Actively engage in Musica’s services
- Encourage residents’ families and carers to engage in Musica’s services
- Encourage other members of staff to engage with music both during and outside of our sessions.
Our Home-from-Home Stories showcase inspiring care homes who have won Care Home of the Month awards.
How do you choose a Care Home of the Month winner?
Care homes are nominated on a monthly basis by our Musica Coordinators and then judged by the Musica Head Office team. The team evaluate individual strengths accordingly to the five criteria points mentioned above and choose one care home to win the award in each territory per month.
Can a Care Home win more than one award a year?
In a word, yes. Although we encourage our Musica Coordinators to nominate as many care homes as they wish, if your care home is performing better than others, it will be consistently rewarded.
