New Century Care has honoured its most committed and outstanding staff in their second ‘Caring Hearts’ awards – held to recognise those staff who go above and beyond to provide the highest quality care.
In total, 28 members of staff from across all 21 of New Century Care’s care homes were honoured by fellow staff members, residents, and family members who were grateful for the warmth and care given to their loved ones.
Among the recipients were Sarah Johnstone – who was named ‘Nurse of the Year’ for her ability to connect with residents and provide quality care, and Julie Hayes – who picked up the ‘Meaningful Activities’ award in recognition of her work in putting together a fun-filled activities programme which keeps her residents happy and healthy.
The winners were chosen by a judging panel based upon the recipients’ extraordinary dedication and commitment to upholding the vision and values of New Century Care and consistently going the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of residents.
Each winner picked up the award at a ceremony held in the Macdonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham. Guests were treated to a delicious three course meal before a formal trophy presentation was made by the senior leadership team at New Century Care.
This is the second year that New Century Care has held the company wide award ceremony. The evening is intended to be a celebration of the unwavering hard work and commitment to the highest quality of care, demonstrated by New Century Care staff up and down the country
Jo Wildman, Quality and Governance Director at New Century Care commented:
“The Caring Hearts Awards was a fantastic experience and a wonderful opportunity to showcase and celebrate our award-winning staff who go above and beyond to provide the best possible care. Everyone at New Century Care is extremely proud of all of the winners, who provide a wonderful example for us all.”
