Katie More (30), Manager at Cloverleaf Care Home in Lincoln won a prestigious award at Tanglewood Care Homes ‘Annual Awa rds Ball’. Katie beat off stiff competition to scoop one of the biggest accolades of the evening, the award for ‘Outstanding Contribution’.
The award ceremony was held in the stunning Nineteen33 & Kabia’s suites at the Boston Stadium and dedicated to Tanglewood’s care homes and team members. The gala event was hosted by Shaun Williamson aka ‘Barry from Eastenders’ who warmed up the audience, announced the winners and kept everybody in stitches with a barrage of his cheesiest jokes and anecdotes.
At just 30 Katie is a jewel in Tanglewood’s crown. Driven by her passion for care, Katie joined the Company in 2017 as Deputy Manager for Toray Pines Care Home in Coningsby and was quickly identified as a rising star. Katie was soon promoted to Home Manager where she established herself as a natural leader with the ability to influence change and enthuse others to realise their potential.
In 2021 Katie was offered and accepted the position of Home Manager for Cloverleaf, a new 72 bed nursing home in Lincoln. Katie continued to flourish at Cloverleaf and once again inspired her team to promote a culture that encourages independence and inclusion. Katie is constantly driven by her desire to ensure that residents are happy and cared for with respect, dignity and compassion.
Home Manager Katie More said,
“I was thrilled to receive the Tanglewood award for ‘Outstanding Contribution’, it’s amazing to be recognised in this way! My ethos has always been that we work in our resident’s home, and not that they live in our workplace. Therefore we treat residents and their home respectfully. Cloverleaf is a warm and inclusive community where we consistently aim to meet the aspirations of residents as well as their needs; consequently our home is a happy home. I truly love working in the care sector and feel fortunate to have found my vocation early in my career.”
Tanglewood Director for Quality & Compliance Caroline Greaves said,
“I am incredibly proud of Katie, she is a fantastic ambassador for Tanglewood and the care industry. It was apparent from the very beginning that Katie has the attributes of a leader, she is kind, caring and compassionate and also fearless, inspirational and passionate. Katie has a golden future ahead of her, I wish her continued success in the sector she loves so much. Congratulations on your award Katie, well deserved.”
