For the past few months now we have been taking nominations from our community as to who should be crowned our Carer of the Month and win the coveted box of goodies. Last month our Carer of the Month was Rosie, who'd been working incredibly hard and always been the most bubbly and lively of people. We've had plenty of nominations from the community, but this time around there was one particular individual who really stood out. So here goes:
Start the drum roll please!
Our carer of the month for October 2018 is Sion Wilcox!!
Last month we were given an insight into someone who exemplifies absolutely everything that is great about people who work in care. Sion runs a home in a rural area of Wales, which had suffered really bad flooding. Luckily the home itself was on higher ground and safe from the flooding itself, but the access roads to it were completely under water.
In order to make sure his residents were safe and well cared for, Sion actually braved the flooding and in his Land Rover, went out to collect his staff and bring them into the home, so his residents wouldn't need to be relocated. The picture below of what Sion braved was incredible. To navigate those kinds of conditions and make sure his residents were well looked after deserves a medal!
We don't have any medals (just yet!) but we thought that this added up to making Sion perfect for our Carer of the month award for his outstanding contributions to those in his care. Sion we salute you, keep up the good work and we hope you enjoy your goodies.
How does our carer of the month award work?
Every month we select the best and the brightest (as well as those carers who get nominated by their team) for the award. We bundle up a trophy and some goodies to provide some much-needed celebration for all of the hard work that our winner has put in.
How can you get involved in the Carer of the month?
Our monthly award is open to all carers, care managers and professionals who are part of the Log my Care community. All you need to do is keep logging the care you provide as usual and/or get nominated by someone in your team to be put in for consideration. To nominate someone just drop the support team a message via our live chat from your Carer App and we’ll put them into the final draw. At the end of the month, we collect everyone up and select the winner. Simple!
If you’re part of a care provider not using Log my Care, then fear not. The core system is totally free to use! So go and get yourself an account, you’ll be up and running in no time at all!
