Two care workers at Gold Care Home have been recognized for their contribution in care by reaching the finalist categories for the National Care Awards and the National Dementia Care Awards.
Theresa McElligott has reached the finalist category in the National Care Awards for Lifetime Achievement in Care, alongside Ronnie Lane, who is a nominated finalist for the Care Home Champion category.
In addition, Ronnie Lane is also a nominated finalist for The Dementia Care Awards for the Dementia Care Personality category.
Ravi Gidar, Managing Director at Gold Care Homes said: “Gold Care Homes is in the process of a major transformational journey. To be nominated by our peers is a great indicator that we’re moving in the right direction.
“Theresa’s dedication and commitment to care is second to none. She has successfully mentored many new recruits within the business and was the main driving force in developing and implementing the Gold Care Code of Excellence. No staff member across our 1500 employees has received more letters of thanks or recommendations of excellence than Theresa. She is truly one of a kind.
“Ronnie has benefited from the influence of characters such as Theresa, and, over 15 years, has developed from a Carer to an exceptional Care Manager – now leading a CQC OUTSTANDING rated care home (The Tudors in Peterborough). His new ideas and innovative ways of working are helping shape the role of the Care Manager for the future here at Gold Care Homes. Both nominees are fantastic assets to the Gold Care family.”
Winners of the National Dementia Care Awards will be presented with their trophies by Hazel Blears on Thursday 8th November at the Hilton Brighton Metropole. Winners of the National Care Awards will be presented with their trophies by James Nesbitt on Friday 30th November at the Hilton London Metropole Hotel.
