Norwich CAREGiver Monique is an Award Finalist

Monique Buckley, a Caregiver from Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich is over the moon to be one of three finalists in the Rising Star category at the Norfolk Care Awards 2020.

Monique, who visits her clients within their own homes, joined Home Instead Senior Care Norwich in March 2019 because she wanted to work directly with her local community and help others.

Over the last 11 months, Monique has been recognised for going above and beyond with all her clients, all of which have unique needs. From clients living with dementia, Parkinson’s and other health related issues, Monique has won them all over with her joy for life and desire to help others.

One of her clients has described her as ‘charming, helpful and cheerful, the perfect carer’.

Monique commented on the award: “It’s wonderful to be acknowledged for doing a job I love. Being a caregiver gives me great satisfaction each day to know I have left my client happy, safe and well looked after. It is an empowering rollercoaster, where I am learning continually about adult senior care.”

Chris Carter, co-owner of Home Instead Norwich, said: “We are so proud of Monique. She demonstrates a continual commitment to her clients and colleagues, paying attention to the details that enable her to deliver high-quality care.

“Finalists in the Rising Star category demonstrate an understanding and empathy with people who use care and support services and are always willing to go the extra mile, which is exactly what Monique does.

“Monique has made a fantastic start to her career in care, with much to offer the older people of Norwich and the care sector and we look forward to seeing her career develop. Good luck!”

The award final is at Sprowston Manor Hotel on Thursday 20th February 2020.
