Felizitas  Nothof  Home Instead  - Student / CAREGiver is Highly Commended at a very special Edge Hill University - Employability Awards 2015 Evening .

At a wonderful evening in Edge Hill University ‘University of the Year ‘, Liz Nothof was shortlisted out of eighty students, in the Student Employee of the Year (External) Award and received her ‘Highly Commended’ award from Steve Igoe the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Edge Hill University.

Jaquie Howe Head of Careers at Edge Hill University commented "Edge Hill University recognises employability as an essential component of students’ experience, and the Careers Centre plays a vital role in ensuring that our graduates are well prepared to succeed in a competitive labour market. The Employability Awards Evening provides an opportunity to recognise the progress and achievements that students have made in developing their ability  to stand out from the crowd and we would like to congratulate all of those who were recognised on the evening".   

Gail Godson Director, comments "We nominated Liz who in our opinion is already a winner as a first class student carer, who always provides an exceptional care service for her clients, Liz understands the value of delivering good care and where ever possible builds a very consistent, reliable, trusting and respectful relationship with the people she cares for. Clearly her studies must always take priority but when at work Liz always strives to put her clients first, with a happy smiley face at all times, Liz regularly supports vulnerable people in our local community with a wide range of care services , many of whom have very complex and challenging health conditions and needs".

Gail goes on to say "Liz is an excellent listener and communicator who recognises that the quality of her training with Home Instead and client relationships can help her to trigger timely GP intervention for clients  whenever she might see their general health and well-being decline, in turn this not only improves the general outlook for her clients, but it can also help them avoid going into hospital unnecessarily, something  that Liz has achieved on more than one occasion since joining Home Instead. Liz is a tremendous ambassador for Edge Hill University and we are very proud of her work with Home Instead in the local community".
