Angela Boyle, Housekeeper come Administrator at Regency Care Home in Whitefield has been crowned Values Champion for the North West of England in the Four Seasons Health Care Awards 2016 and is through to the national finals.
These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Angela demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Values Champion award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including someone who strives to bring a little joy to everyday experiences, whilst always being respectful, trusted, caring and making a difference.
Angela was nominated by her colleagues. Her nomination read: “Angela is undoubtedly one of the greatest assets, not only to Regency Care Home but to Four Seasons. She has embraced the corporate values and goes the extra mile in everything she does. She is a great inspiration. Embracing all of the company policies and procedures, she has taken on additional roles and responsibilities and never complains. She continues to prove herself time and time again. When she isn’t cleaning, supporting the administration of the home she is supporting our activities team in engaging our residents in meaningful life skills such as home baking sessions. We don’t know what we’d do without her.”
As the winner for the North West of England, Angela is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. She will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Angela Clarke, Regional Manager for Four Seasons Health Care for Greater Manchester, said: “Angela is a fantastic asset at Regency Care Home. She lives and breathes our company visions and values knowing that nurturing those and the team around her will yield the best results. There’s not a thing she doesn’t know or put her hand to in the home. Well done Angela! You are truly deserving of this award.”
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in the North West of England, said: “Angela is a passionate and caring individual. The fact that she helps out all over the home shows that she’s not afraid to muck in. She encourages and inspires her team and upholds the company values whilst always putting the need of the residents and their families first. Congratulations Angela!”
The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
The 14 categories have been created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Registered Nurse of the Year’ to ‘Care Home Manager of the Year’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.
“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”
