Mitzi Lockwood – Care Assistant – Clacton
Mitzi takes her time to learn what her service users need from her during their care calls. She also takes an interest in those closest to her service users which was an absolute blessing when she realised the wife of one of her service users was having a stroke. Mitzi took the time to make sure the service user and his wife were ok, arranged emergency medical care and potentially saved a life.
Donna Simpson – Care Assistant – Liverpool
Donna recently received a call from a friend of her service user and when she arrived to the service user she was faced with a very distressing situation. Donna rang 999 and followed instruction from the call handler until paramedics arrived. Whilst waiting for paramedics Donna had to clear the service user’s airways and was required to perform CPR until paramedics arrived.
Helen Gregson – Care Assistant – Southport
With a recent staff shortage in branch sue to illness Helen has stepped up to assist with coordinating team’s rosters and still helping with field care activities. Her knowledge of the service users and staff is amazing, Helen is an asset to the team.
John Booth – ECM Officer – Bolton
John has been a credit to the team recently and has been there to support all staff. Nothing has been too much trouble, going above and beyond to support the branch on top of his usual workload.
Hannah Arthan – Field Care Supervisor – Stoke
Hannah has been a huge asset to the Stoke branch since joining the team. Hannah is highly dedicated to her role, staff schedules are way in advance and she is making a big impression in branch. Hannah is always willing to help out no matter the circumstances and is an asset to the team.
Katie Berry – Care Assistant – Bolton
Katie has given so much love and care to her role and often goes beyond above and beyond for the service users in her care. Katie was recently caring for a service user who sadly passed away and the care and attention she gave the service user was simply amazing.
