Home Instead is delighted to announce that Helena Adjeke, Care Coordinator at Home Instead in Leicester, collected the coveted national ‘Dignity in Care’ award at the finals of this year’s prestigious Great British Care Awards on Saturday 23rd June.
The ‘Dignity in Care’ award is presented to an individual who demonstrates the significance of maximising a client’s independence and choice, whilst respecting and maintaining privacy and dignity at all times.
Lisa Carr, Director of the Great British Care Awards commented, “Helena demonstrated a passion and clear understanding of what “dignity in care” is. She is very enthusiastic, clearly adores her job and shows a commitment to both the staff and service users.”
The glittering awards ceremony, held at the Grosvenor House Marriot Hotel in London, was presented by celebrity singer Jane MacDonald.
The awards celebrate excellence across the social care sector and pay tribute to individuals who have excelled in their work.
Home Instead had three other finalists at the awards, all of whom, like Helena, had won their regional finals.
CAREGivers Pauline Rose from Solihull and Mary Hayes from Barnet, both took home a finalist award in the ‘Home Care Worker of the Year’ category. Lynda Oates from Ipswich won her finalist award in the ‘Dementia Carer’ category.
Commenting on the four finalists, Trevor Brocklebank, CEO of Home Instead said, “It gives me great pleasure to see the work our teams do across the country being recognised at such a prestigious event. My congratulations go to Helena, Pauline, Mary and Lynda.
“The work we do enriches the lives of older people and gives invaluable support to their families. It is our stated aim to change the face of ageing and the recognition we have received at this year’s Great British Care Awards, in particular picking up the Dignity in Care Award, tells me that this is exactly what we are doing.”
