Deer Park View carer Tina wins Carer of the Year Award

Tina Ravenhill has been named Carer of the Year by Richmond Council in their recent Dignity in Care Awards. Tina, who works as a Senior Care Assistant at Deer Park View Care Centre in Teddington, was nominated for the award by Mary Mitchell the daughter of a resident at the home.

In her nomination Mrs Mitchell commented: “Tina is a pivotal part of a strong, caring team. I have met a lot of care workers but Tina stands out. She is always dependable and if she says she will do something she does it. If she notices someone needs something, or that a resident is trying to do something she simply helps, striving to ensure the dignity of residents is maintained. It is these small things over and above the essential caring that makes Tina so special.

She treats the residents as if they are part of her family, and is endlessly kind to both them and their relatives and friends. To summarise, Tina’s dedication, kindness and understanding is second to none. She (along with her colleagues) has to deal with some heartrending situations and she is always there with a kind word or a big smile. She is a ray of sunshine.”

Tina lives in Surbiton and has worked at Deer Park View since 2011. She was one of four carers at Deer Park View nominated in the Care Worker of the Year (Older People’s Care) category. She received a certificate, trophy, £100 in high street shopping vouchers and a large bouquet of flowers at the awards ceremony at the town hall.

Isabella Mackenzie, Home Manager, said: “What wonderful news! We are very proud of Tina for winning the award and delighted that four of our team members were nominated independently by relatives of our residents. Tina is very dedicated to her role – so much so that she travelled to the awards ceremony in her uniform and returned to finish her shift afterwards!”
