National home care provider Right at Home UK has announced its 2020 CareGiver of the Year.
Kellie Williams from Right at Home Cardiff and Newport was recognised for her commitment to providing “exceptional care” during the provider’s recent virtual Celebration Awards ceremony.
The caregiver, who has worked for the branch for seven years, was put forward by her managing director Joe Guishard.
Right at Home said Williams was chosen as the winner based on a combination of excellent client feedback; testimonials from her team; and examples of where she has demonstrated the provider’s four core values – trust, quality, compassion and respect.
On hearing about her nomination, one of her clients said: “I am not surprised Kellie has been put forward as your CareGiver of the Year. She is very special in so many ways. She has such a happy, outgoing approach to everything she does and her warmth and positivity bring real cheer and laughter into the homes of those she cares for, many of whom see no one else in their day.”
Commenting on her award win, Williams said: “I would like to say how much working in care has made my life so much more rewarding. To be able to visit Clients and know how much it means to them makes my day much better.
“Right at Home makes you feel very much a part of their family and the support and help that they give is also very encouraging.”
Also during the Celebration Awards ceremony, Sara Woodley from Right at Home Guildford and Farnham and Emily Colliss from Right at Home Basingstoke, were jointly named Registered Manager of the Year.
Speaking of the awards, Right at Home UK CEO, Ken Deary, said: “Our Celebration Awards are a fantastic opportunity to come together as a network and recognise the efforts of the offices and staff who are bringing to life our motto of ‘making a difference every day’.
“This year has undoubtedly presented a number of challenges for those operating in the social care sector, so it’s now more important than ever to come together and recognise the above and beyond lengths our network has undergone to keep our Clients, CareGivers and communities safe and supported during the pandemic.”
