On Saturday 9th November, carer Jordan Ellis was named as the winner of the ‘Dignity in Care’ award at the South East regional finals of the Great British Care Awards.
Jordan impressed the judging panel by demonstrating a ‘strong, natural understanding and commitment to the clients in her care’. Jordan expressed to the judges that she felt privileged to be a part of Penhurst Gardens and was crowned the winner at a glittering awards ceremony in Brighton.
The ‘Dignity in Care’ award is presented to an individual who can show they understand the significance of maximising independence and choice whilst respecting the privacy and dignity of those in their care at all times. The recipient is able to clearly explain the meaning of dignity and can demonstrate their plans to further improve what they do for those they look after. Next year, we’ll be attending the national finals and look forward to seeing if Jordan will be crowned the winner again!
