A Head Chef from A HC-One care home in the West Midlands has been shortlisted in The Above & Beyond Special Award at the 2018 Care Home Catering Awards.
Louise, who works at Roxburgh House, was shortlisted after judges noted her baking skills and dedication to her role.
Louise has been with the company for over 12 years, showing commitment both to Roxburgh House and to the hundreds of people she has looked after during that time.
Her main role at the home in Cradley heath is to manage the kitchen team to cook and serve nutritious, healthy meals that residents will love.
Louise said: “I feel privileged to have been shortlisted for this award and at the same time fortunate that at Roxburgh House we have a passionate team and support structure who make my job a joy to do.
“I have dedicated a large amount of my working life to working with the elderly and feel truly privileged to have been considered for The Above & Beyond Special Award, which would not have been possible without my team of chefs at the home whom I am very grateful of.”
HC-One’s care home manager, Julie Jones, said:
“We are very proud to have Louise as part of our team and delighted that her hard work has been recognised in this way.
“Louise has always been a committed and dedicated member of the Roxburgh team and on behalf of all of us here, we would like to wish her the best of luck at the awards.”
