Care Assistants commended for their Care and Kindness

Angela Linney and Veronica Haggart, Care Assistants from Preston Glades Care Home in Preston have received an award after being commended for their caring nature.

Angela and Veronica were nominated for a Recognition of Care and Kindness (ROCK) award by a family member of a resident in their care. The nomination read: “They both provide exemplary and exceptional care and support to the residents at all times. They undertake their roles in a professional manner with dignity and respect. My mum passed away in May and both Veronica and Angela cared for her during her final days. They treated mum with love and tenderness as if she was their own mum. My sisters and I appreciated all their kindness and endless cups of tea. Nothing was too much trouble for them. This exceptional level of service was also demonstrated by all the nursing staff and other care workers at the Preston Glades. I would like to praise the management and all staff at the Preston Glades for the continuous care commitment they provide to all their residents.”

A ROCK award is a nationwide honour that specifically highlights the impact a Four Season Health Care employee has made on the lives of people living in one of their care homes. An internal prize, staff are nominated for an award by either residents, their relatives or friends, who have witnessed or experienced staff members demonstrating excellent standards of care and kindness in their role.

Jacqui Longden, Home Manager said: “This award for Veronica and Angela is very well deserved. I want to congratulate them on their success and thank them for all of their hard work and determination. The ladies are fantastic advocates for this award.”
