We’re Finalists in the Care Awards!

12th Oct 2018

This year, the judges have shortlisted – not one – but four members of our team as regional finalists in their categories! These are very special awards for us as finalists are chosen for their compassion, knowledge and achievement in each field.

Two members of of the team from our day care centre have been nominated and we want to share this wonderful news with you all!

Gill Sinar has been nominated for ‘The Dementia Carer Award’. This important award has been created to reflect the specific skills needed to manage and deliver services sensitive to the needs of older people with dementia. Gill has a huge wealth of experience of the needs of those living with a dementia and can support them with compassion, as well as being a huge support to their loved ones too.
