Koppers gets top ten ranking in the South West after being recommended by residents, friends and relatives

A Kilmington care home has been voted one of the best in the South West.

The Koppers came eighth out of 2,370 similar establishments from across the region to receive an award from online directory and industry website carehome.co.uk

The accolade was based on the home’s online recommendations from its residents, their friends and relatives.

Director of carehome.co.uk Davina Ludlow said: “We felt the best people to rate a care home were the people who really know its ins and outs, its residents and their families.

“The Koppers has proved that it provides a great service and we’d like to congratulate them on being a top recommended home in the South West. It’s a brilliant achievement to be recognised for your hard work but particularly from the people who you work hard for.

“The care home will be recognised on our website as a top rated home and will receive a certificate from us.”

Koppers’ owner Vivian Baksh said: “It was wonderful to hear that we have won the award of being the eighth best home in the south west. It has boosted the morale of the home and given the staff a sense of pride as they feel their dedication and hard work have been recognised and rewarded. Here at The Koppers, our core values enable us to offer a home tailored to individual need.

“The team at The Koppers are dedicated, caring, well-trained and committed in providing the best possible care to our residents.

“We are planning to have an afternoon tea party with our residents, their families, friends and staff to celebrate our proud moment.”
