Carer Olive shortlisted for top award

St Georges care home carer Olive Whiting was shortlisted as Carer of the Year at the Caring Homes Group Recognition Awards.

With more than 5,500 employees across the group Olive beat off stiff competition to be recognised for her dedication to the caring profession.

The awards were presented at a glittering ceremony hosted at the Grove Hotel in Watford and presented by musician and singer Ronan Keating.

St Georges is a modern, purpose-built care home in Bristol. Located in a quiet residential area three miles from the city centre, St Georges provides specialist nursing care for up to 67 people.

Olive has worked at the home for 20 years and in that time has always shown dedication to her role, always willing to pick up extra shifts when necessary.

Following a review of over 3,000 nominations received from colleagues and people supported for the awards, Olive was shortlisted for Carer of the Year 2017.

The judges shared the views of one nomination which stated; “Olive is loved by the residents at the home as she puts herself out and is a caring, kind, positive and joyful person.”

Attended by over 340 guests the evening was a great occasion, with colleagues and business partners coming together to celebrate the very best care and support provided by outstanding people.

Paul Jeffery, CEO, Caring Homes Group stated; “The Recognition Awards 2017, provided an opportunity to showcase talent, dedication and commitment, as well as demonstrate the crucial role our professionals play in caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

It’s very important that we celebrate success, from the finalists nominated, to the thousands of our colleagues making a significant contribution to caring for and supporting people all over the UK.”

The event was generously sponsored by Caring Homes Group’s business partners, who together made the event possible.

Visiting St George is the best way to experience life at the home and talking to residents about their experiences.
