Lucy Dean, Quality Development Officer at home care provider Carewatch, won ‘Support Role of the Year’ at the company’s annual awards, which culminated in a glittering awards ceremony at Eastwood Hall near Nottingham recently.
The awards recognise exceptional achievements in home care. They offer employees an opportunity to share knowledge and best practice techniques, as well as have some fun in the process.
Competition was fierce, but Lucy stood apart from the rest for her central role in the head office in Milton Keynes. She was the driving force in the company achieving its quality rating from Certification International, which recognises Carewatch as a robust company with quality-driven administrational processes and procedures in place.
Judges noted Lucy’s on-going passion to her job and dedication to supporting the company’s network of local offices, ultimately helping them to provide outstanding levels of care to customers in their respective areas.
On the night of the awards Lucy was presented with a winner’s certificate, bottle of bubbly, £100 retail voucher and a rapturous round of applause.
The company provides national care and support services since 1993. It focuses on giving high quality support to those who want to live at home, providing a tailored and flexible approach to meeting the requirements of individuals in need.
Lucy says: “I am delighted to win this award and would like to thank my fellow staff members at Carewatch for their support and encouragement.
“The job is hugely rewarding and sometimes very challenging, so it is great to get this recognition.”
CEO Scott Christie comments: “Lucy is a deserved winner of this award and an absolute credit to Carewatch.
“We always emphasise hiring highly capable staff and Lucy epitomises the attributes and values we treasure.”
