Throughout 2019 we had a number of carers who we felt deserved the title of ‘Carer of the Month’. Below you will find a selection of these carers and find out who they were and why they were chosen.
Susan was announced as Private HomeCare’s ‘Carer of the Year’ at the company’s 30 year anniversary in December. She has worked as a carer at Private HomeCare for over 20 years.
Private HomeCare’s MD Elizabeth Nicholson said, ‘Susan is an excellent carer who shows empathy and compassion to all her clients and is an excellent team member to colleagues. Susan’s clients comment on her professionalism, her sunny disposition, and the confidence she brings to them to remain in their own home.’
Tina was awarded the ‘Carer of the Month’ in November last year. Managing Director Elizabeth Nicholson said : “We have seen a massive increase in confidence in Tina as she has come on in leaps and bounds, both academically and socially within the classroom.
Tina recently showed up for filming on day 4 of a QQI despite the fact that her daughter was awaiting a blood transfusion in hospital.”
Yetunde was our chosen carer in October. She was chosen by our Evaluation Committee who said “Yetunde is very obliging and never cancels shifts. Clients are very happy. She communicates very well with both clients and the office and is up-to-date on all of her training courses.”
Aoife was our ‘Carer of the Month’ in September 2019. The Evaluation committee chooses our carers based on a number of criteria including Client Focus, Accountability, Respect and Effective Communication. Aoife was currently working through her QQI modules and was very committed to education and her continuous professional development. She interacts very well with other learners, has a positive attitude and is accountable for her actions.
August’s chosen carer was John Madu, who was also a finalist for ‘Carer of the Year’. Upon winning the award John said “I am very happy to be working for Private HomeCare. Everybody is so pleasant and nice and are always willing to listen and support Carers”. John told us he showed his letter confirming his award to his children and told them “this is what can happen when you work hard and are nice to people.”
