A care home in Wimbledon is celebrating after its manager received a top award.

Nicholas Kee Mew, manager of Arthur House, in Arthur Road, Wimbledon, won the award for “Dementia Care Inspiring Leader” at the National Dementia Care Awards.

He said: “I'm lost for words. I'm really thankful to my colleagues for helping me to make Arthur House the great place that it is.

“This has been such a brilliant year for us and I just want to make sure that 2018 is just as successful.”

Arthur House was rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) when it was inspected earlier this year. It supports up to 12 older people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Nicholas received the award for being an inspiration to his team and developing morale. It was presented in a ceremony at Doncaster Racecourse.

There were 16 categories to enter overall and there were four or five finalists in each category with two independent judges.

Arthur House is part of The Priory Group, which provides care for around 30,000 people a year for conditions including depression, stress and eating disorders.
