Homelife Carers Celebrate with their first ever Carers Awards Event
HomeLife Carers have recently celebrated their first ever Carers Awards, recognising all those who have been champions in the eyes of their colleagues and clients. Held in Exeter, the event was spread over two weekends ensuring that sufficient cover was provided for clients in the community whilst allowing all staff to attend at least one of the evenings. A total of 220 people attended, celebrating the achievements of the team split into five categories; the Carers Carer, the Clients Carer, Dedication to Service Award, Best Newcomer and the Managers Award (this award was given to the individual who despite a difficult year, had not allowed events to impact their work, remaining committed to their role and clients).
‘Whilst the events were held as an award ceremony, the evenings themselves were much more than this; this was a real opportunity for us, as an organisation, to say a massive thank you to all the care team for their dedication, support and loyalty they show their clients. All too often we hear in the news negative stories about the care industry, but not all stories need be negative and in fact, there are so many positive and incredible things which carers all do as a matter of their daily routines with clients. These events were our opportunity to recognise and celebrate those brilliant traits the care team all have.’ said John Griffiths, Managing Director. ‘It really has been a wonderful experience for all involved and a fantastic way to celebrate the incredible work all the team do.’
