Congratulations to our nurse, Kate Holownia, who has been named as a finalist in the ‘Care Registered Nurse’ category of the National Care Awards!

She makes our residents and relatives feel secure and supported and can always be relied on for some positivity which lends itself well to Avondale’s culture of care, compassion and fun. Kate is well-liked by her colleagues too and she goes above and beyond the call of duty for those her care. This sentiment is shared by residents, relatives and staff alike and we’re delighted for Kate on this nomination. The winner of the category will be announced during a gala evening held on 30th November in London. Good luck, Kate!
