Danielle Woolgar, Senior Care Assistant at Woodlands House care home, located in the New Forest, was delighted to be nominated by residents, family carers and her fellow colleagues for ‘The Care Home Worker Award’ 2015.
The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout England and are a celebration of excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards is to pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
This year, they received over 2,000 applicants for ‘The Care Home Worker Award’ and we are proud to announce that on Wednesday 7th October, Danielle attended her first interview at Cheltenham Racecourse where she was successfully shortlisted down to the final 6. All of the residents at Woodlands House wished her the best of luck by sending her off with a beautiful bouquet of flowers!
Home Manager, Amanda Tanner commented: “I am extremely proud of Danielle and this nomination is so well deserved. We are fortunate at Woodlands House to have so many fantastic staff and carers who show such kindness and compassion. Danielle has been described by one relative as a “Guardian Angel” and never has that seemed more fitting. Everyone is wishing her all the best”.
Danielle went on to say: “When Amanda called me to tell me I had been nominated for such an amazing award I couldn’t quite believe it! I was overwhelmed and the first thing I did was call my mum to tell her. Of course, I am very pleased and very grateful to be nominated, but it is easy being caring when you work with such an incredible team … we really are lucky!”
The Great British Care Award Gala Evening will take place on Thursday 19th November where the winner of ‘The Care Home Worker Award’ will be announced. From everyone at Hartford Care, we wish Danielle the best of luck.
