The whole team won the 'Outstanding Residential or Nursing Home Care Worker or Team' category at the ceremony, which was hosted by BBC Spotlight's Justin Leigh.
s The recognition comes less than a year after Park House was at serious risk of closing due to recruitment issues.
The award was for an individual (or team) who made an outstanding contribution to the care and/or support of others in home or domiciliary care. The judging panel looked for evidence that the nominee had "gone beyond what might be routinely expected of them and is someone who is highly regarded by the people they care for and/or by their colleagues".
There were 420 nominations across the awards' 13 categories.
The awards are run by the CAHSC (Cornwall Adult Health and Social Care) Learning Partnership.
The Council of the Isles of Scilly's Lead Member for Adults Adrian Davis previously congratulated staff for making the final three, telling This is Scilly: "We're all very pleased and grateful. This is thoroughly deserved recognition for a small but very busy team over here."
