Congratulations to our November winners and to everyone who was nominated.
Congratulations to our Maples branch who has received Employee of the Month for each of our values!
Stacey Moran – The Maples
Stacey’s commitments at home can change week by week meaning her availability to work changes regularly. She always emails the branch in advance of any changes to availability to ensure rotas are completed accurately in a timely manner and to avoid any confusion within the rotas.
Deborah Moran – The Maples
Deb has been amazing in helping a service user who is resistant to care to receive the quality care she needs. She is always patient and encourages the service user to accept assistance whilst continuing to maintain the service users independence and dignity. She is able to gain the service users to trust to help her with personal care and has even been able to take the service user to a salon.
Jullalies Kierendoongo – The Maples
During a difficult situation that required a service user to need to be taken to hospital by paramedics, Jullalies was able to calm and reassure both the service user and his wife and even assist the paramedics. Amazing work Jullalies!
Julie Gough – The Maples
Julie left an admin role to enter the care industry and very nervous about the change as she didn’t know if she could do it. Julie had the courage to stick with the role whilst learning new skills and has taken to care like a duck to water. She has become a very valued member of the team.
David Daly – The Maples
Despite living quite away from The Maples and relying on public transport over the festive period with limited or no service. David completed every shift and worked additional shifts to cover staff sickness. David you are an asset to the team!
Nicola Gubb – The Maples
Nicola recently stepped up when both the Branch Manager and Team Leader were isolating to ensure the smooth running of the branch. She liaised with Regional Director and Quality Manager as necessary, worked additional hours and dealt with all incoming calls. Amazing work Nicola!
