A Clinical Services Manager at Signature at Elton House is celebrating after being awarded special recognition for her work at the luxury care home.
Cristina-Amor Uy, who works at the care home in Bushey, is being hailed for her impact as a role model. She is setting up a program for Elton House to start receiving student nurses so she can mentor them as part of their nurse training.
This, along with her ‘unwavering, positive, can-do attitude’ resulted in her being named among Trusted Care’s Nursing Superstars.
The care home search website picked Cristina as one of four winning submissions from care homes across the country. Cristina was presented flowers by her colleagues at the care home and championed as a deserved winner.
Karen Fleming, Client Liaison Manager at Signature at Elton House, who nominated Cristina for her award, said:
“Cristina always has a very sunny disposition and inspires her staff and colleagues.
“Cristina has come in on her day off to cover last-minute sickness to ensure all of our residents are provided with the care they deserve. We really admire her selflessness.
“She is always keen to help other departments when she can, going over and above what is expected of her. Cristina is always thinking about others and is in the process of setting up a program for Elton House to start receiving student nurses so she can mentor them as part of their nurse training.
“This is just one example of her kindness and willingness to give up her own time to help others.”
Reflecting on her award success, Cristina said:
“I was overwhelmed being nominated for the award; I feel truly blessed to be recognised for doing the job I love.”
Speaking about Cristina, one resident added:
“I always know it’s going to be a good day when Cristina is on duty. er smile lights up the room and her care and compassion know no bounds.”
