Richmond ‘Dignity in Care’ awards see recognition for Jerald at Deer Park View

Richmond upon Thames recently honoured and celebrated health and social care employees who go above and beyond to ensure care home residents receive the right support.

Deer View Park’s Jerald won the award for Carer of the Year (Older People’s Care Homes) with judges sharing that Jerald won for dealing with residents in such a compassionate and gentle manner, treating all with dignity and standing out as a brilliant example of a Carer.

Jerald has been a care worker caring for dementia residents at Deer Park View since October 2017 and was nominated for the award by relatives of the residents. The team at Deer Park View were also hugely honoured to have been nominated by relatives for an award this year.

‘The Dignity in Care’ award ceremony took place on September 13, at Clarendon Hall in York House, Richmond, where tributes were made to the Personal Assistants and Care Workers who provide amazing support and care to some of Richmond’s most vulnerable members, with four awards being presented.

Councillor Piers Allen, Chair of the Richmond Council Adult Social Services, Health and Housing Committee, said: “Richmond upon Thames provides first-class care to those who need it most and these awards are about highlighting the carers who make this happen.

“Every single person nominated for an award should be proud of their astonishing achievements.

“Special recognition goes to Humera, Chloe, Jerald and Stacey, for raising the bar even higher by going above and beyond their duty.”

The ceremony – which started in 2012, also acknowledged employees who demonstrated that they respected and valued their client’s requests by offering each individual care and compassion.

Councillor Nancy Baldwin gave all nominees a certificate while Nadine Hassler of Richmond Council, Rob Burton, Chief Executive of Age UK in Richmond, Cathy Maker the Chief Executive for Ruils and Clare Taylor of AID’s in Richmond were judge panellists.
