One of our much beloved CAREGivers, Enis, has become 1 of 5 finalists in contention for the Yorkshire and Humberside Great British Care Awards, for the Dignity in Care category.
Enis joined the company in 2006, she is a retired nurse who felt that she still had much to offer to the community, so she came to work for Home Instead. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her role, providing continuity of care to a number of vulnerable Clients.
Her oldest Client is 103 years, and with Enis’s support she is still able to go out for lunch once a week, her son has written to Home Instead to say “Mum looks forward to Enis’s visits far more at times than visits from us. The relationship they have built together provides Mum with some independence and confidence and brightens her week ”Enis’s benchmark is dignity and respect, and she show this at all times.
Her other client is one of Home Instead’s first clients, Enis has been providing support to a lady with advanced Parkinson’s, and has done this for the past 7 years. She offers care, support and dignity in her client’s home, also giving the clients daughter the reassurance that whilst she is not at home her mum is being taken care of by someone who really understands her mother’s needs, including knowing just the right level of care that her mum needs daily.
As if this was not enough Enis travels from the edge of Doncaster to provide this care as she loves what she does, one call means that she does not return home until nearly ten pm, which on dark cold nights or in the snow is commendable. Enis will not let her clients down and feels honoured to be able to make a real difference to her clients lives.
Enis is one remarkable CAREGiver and we aren't surprised that she has become a finalist for this award. The winner of the dignity in care award will be announced at the National Railway Museum, in York on the 8th November. We all have our fingers crossed for Enis!
