Brunelcare's Nicola Davis wins Home Carer of the Year award for her work in Yate
A CARER who works in Yate has been named South Gloucestershire Council’s Home Carer of the Year.
Nicola Davis, who works for private care company Brunelcare, won the top award after being nominated by patients she looks after.
Nicola was praised for her willingness to take her clients shopping and helping them feel dignified.
She was nominated by Iris Mullins and Wilmot Richardson, who both live in Yate.
Mrs Mullins said: “She is very pleasant and thoughtful. When she takes me shopping if I want to go to another shop she takes me there also.”
Mr Richardson said: “All carers do a valuable job but some outshine in their dedication, Nikki is one of them.
“She has been my carer for the past five years and is efficient and very pleasant. I can't thank her enough for the difference she has made to my quality of life, always giving respect for my dignity and giving support to my wife."
Kellie Cutler from Mi Home Care works in Bradley Stoke, Thornbury and Filton and Olivia Kipling, who works in Yate for Brunelcare, were both runners-up.
Cllr Matthew Riddle, chairman of the council’s adults and housing committee, presented the winner with their awards.
He said: “All home carers have been nominated by the people receiving their services, or by carers of people who receive this service.
“This event provides an opportunity for these people and South Gloucestershire Council to recognise the wonderful work that home carers carry out on a daily basis. The difference this can make to the lives of these people is invaluable and I would like to congratulate all those who were nominated for the wonderful work you do, you are all winners.”
