Winners of the Great British South West Care Awards 2018 have been announced – and include two Brunelcare winners!
Friday 16th November saw over 400 of the very best in social care attend a glittering awards ceremony at Aston Gate Stadium in Bristol for the finals of the Great South West Care Awards, when category winners were announced.
The Great British South West Care Awards are part of the ‘Great British Care Awards’, a series of nine regional awards celebrating excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards is to promote best practice within both home care and care homes sectors, and pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
Brunelcare’s winners of the Great British South West Care Awards, together with the judge’s comments:
- Erin Taylor, Care Assistant at Brunelcare’s Deerhurst Care Home and winner of the Care Assessor/Care Planner Award:
“Erin is a young lady with an exceptional attitude to care. Her knowledge and value base was outstanding. She should be very proud of what she has achieved.”
- Clive Iles, volunteer with Deerhurst care home and winner of the Unpaid Carers Award:
“Clive Iles’ connection with Deerhurst was born in the foundations of the building. His mother was one of the first people to live in the home and since 1997 he has been a volunteer part of a larger group of volunteers.
“Clive is a constant presence. His enthusiasm to offer support to anyone who comes into contact with him is plain to see. In this tight financial climate volunteers can make or break a care home.
“Clive is such a positive addition to the care home I have never met another volunteer anywhere near as devoted. Often your contribution is only judged by the hole you leave when gone. I can’t envisage Deerhurst without that smile and greeting from Clive.”
