Ewa Ruskowiak of Edensor Care Home, and who was nominated for a Great British Care Award, beat eleven other nominees in her category, to win the ‘Ancillary Worker Award’.
The ‘Ancillary Worker Award’ is awarded to someone who offers an excellent, person centered service to clients and demonstrates dignity and respect through ancillary services and Ewa’s win allows her to attend the National Finals, on 17 March 2023 at the International Convention Centre, in Birmingham.
Ewa Ruskowiak, a Domestic at Edensor Care Centre, said, “I felt so happy, as I could see that people believed in me, and I have never had that recognition before. I felt very special.” And the domestic team at Edensor commented, “Eva is a beautiful person through and through, she treats every single resident as if they are family. She uses her magic fairy dust to bring everything to life. She is one in a million and we are so very proud of her.”
Lindsey Milliken, Deputy Manager, Edensor Care Centre, said, “Ewa’s compassionate care delivery over fifteen years definitely requires recognition. She is kind, caring and compassionate to all our residents and is in the true sense, an unsung hero. Although, as a domestic, she does not deliver hands on care, she proves to many that ancillary staff can make a real difference to resident’s lives.”
