Advinia Healthcare Celebrate Success at ‘Care Sector’s Got Talent’ Final

Hillview Care Home, operated by Advinia Healthcare, is celebrating after winning the ‘Care Sector’s Got Talent’ final held in Derby Arena. The winning duet, a note-perfect performance of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s ‘Shallow’, was sung by Michael Gallagher, Wellbeing Coordinator, and Charlene Reeves, Senior Care Assistant.

The annual talent competition showcases the diverse talents of care home staff from across the UK, and this year, Advinia Health Care had two finalists, with Craig Smith from Newcarron Care Home also putting on a fantastic performance with his Elvis tribute.

According to organisers, the standard of competition was exceptional, and the panel of judges were impressed by Michael and Charlene’s chemistry, the way they supported each other, and the beauty of their voices blending. The judges praised the duo’s performance, saying it “epitomises all that is great about social care.”

Both Michael and Charlene have been working in the care sector for several years, and they were thrilled to represent Hillview Care Home in the competition.

Speaking about the win, Michael said, “The care sector is phenomenal, and it was an honour to be a part of the competition.”

Charlene added, “Performing in the final was an amazing experience, and we felt like superstars. We want to do it all again!”

As winners, Michael and Charlene not only received the title and prizes but will also be performing at the Care Sector’s Grand Fundraising Ball in London in September. The event raises funds for two great charities, Alzheimer’s UK, and the Care Workers Society.

Paul Lawson, Customer Relations Manager at Advinia Healthcare said “ We are proud of our staff for the many talents they possess. Congratulations to Michael, Charlene, and Craig on their performances in the competition. The company is committed to promoting and supporting the diverse talents of its staff and ensuring that all residents receive the highest quality care.”
