2014 CAREGiver of the Year Regional Finalist

I am delighted to announce that our CAREGiver Lorraine Birkett has been selected as the Regional CAREGiver of the year. This is a fantastic achievement. She will now represent Home Instead Newcastle in the National Final in November.

Lorraine was one of our first CAREGivers, she has set the standard for the other staff we have, although this makes my job more difficult to recruit staff. It ensures we have the right staff in place to support our clients.

Lorraine has supported a number of clients when we asked her current clients what they thought of her they said;

" Loving, Organised, Realistic, Raring to go, Amazing, Intuitive, Never at a loss, Energetic."- 

"My CAREGiver is always smart and friendly, she acts as part of the family and is ever ready to engage in sensible discussion. She keeps me well fed and seems always ahead of the game. Since becoming involved with Home Instead my life has improved 100%".

We are very proud of Lorraine and the other CAREGivers who support her with the clients she serves.

Lorraine was presented with the Regional award by Karen Loughnane, Head of Standards and compliance at our Newcastle office.

There will be five other regional finalist at the presentation evening in November all, of course, will deserve to win but we wish Lorraine the best of luck.

We are always looking for new staff we offer a unique opportunity to people with a passion to support elderly persons within their home to work for our team in Newcastle. Please call us for further recruitment opportunities.
