Two employees at a Yorkshire home care company have received long-service awards.
Jo Wood and Carla Hainsworth joined Carefound Home Care when the company started in 2012 and are celebrating 5 years’ service with the team. They were presented with their awards at the company’s offices in Harrogate and, as a gesture of appreciation, will be able to choose from an extra day’s paid holiday or £100 worth of gift vouchers.
Jo is a member of the company’s Harrogate hourly care team and joined as a Registered Nurse having previously worked in hospitals, care and nursing homes and home care. She has a particular interest in supporting clients living with dementia and is a great example of the difference somebody with her expertise can make to an elderly person’s life in enabling them to continue to live at home.
Carla came to Carefound Home Care with no care experience but a clear passion to help others and learn. In only 5 years she has gone on to achieve her Level 2 & 3 Diplomas in Health & Social Care and progress to a leadership role as Senior Home Carer.
