Last month we awarded a superstar Heather Harris from Whiteacres Residential Care Home. In only a few months we saw her complete 50,000 logs on our care system, and that's rarely been done! Now onto our May 2020 Carer of the Month: which is very special this time because we've got not one, but two winners!
Every month, we’re lucky enough to read hundreds of nominations for the Carer of the Month awards. but sadly we can only pick one winner. It’s very difficult because all nominees deserve to win.
Last week, senior carer Jade Budd nominated manager Lewis Edwards: “Due to only being in Management for a year and dealing with the current pandemic so well, adapting and changing no what comes his way. He is still staying calm with a level head and coming in with a positive/ upbeat mood. Going above and beyond his role, not only Manager but insuring his team are well cared for that we have all of the supplies we need all while acting as a therapist to many. So Thank you Lewis“
Lewis won the award, and we were very excited to share the news with him. But being an excellent Manager doesn’t stop there for Lewis. He expressed his concern about winning this one on his own and decided to share the award with Jade, the person who nominated him in the first place!
Not only that, but he also nominated Jade in return.
"I nominate Jade for all her hard work during the outbreak of COVID-19 and helping an individual shielding for 12 weeks to enjoy life in different ways and supporting me to make his environment and care safer as well as documenting the entire process.", wrote Lewis.
To top this one, Jade Budd had also been nominated by co-worker Simon Whalley:
"I nominate Jade for her amazing work with the customers and she is always going the extra mile for them. She is an inspiration and is an amazing person also who is always helping other Support Workers out with any issues. She totally deserves it."
If this isn’t the best story you’ve read today, we don’t know what is. Teamwork is truly what can make a team excel, even in times of crisis. Respect, encouragement and gratefulness are some of the key elements that make co-workers grow stronger. Well done The Pines, and the whole team. You’ve inspired everyone
