A Kesgrave care home boss and her team have been recognised for her efforts during the coronavirus crisis by the Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk.
Andrea Cowley, general manager of Alice Grange care home, and her staff have been awarded a Certificate of Merit from Clare, Countess of Euston.
Ms Crowley took over the reins at the care home, in St Isidores, earlier this year and has helped turn around its fortunes after it was placed in special measures.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspected the home late last year and rated the service 'good', praising the "significant improvements" it had made.
In her letter from the Lord Lieutenant, Ms Crowley's "innovation, collaboration, courage and generosity" were praised.
