Care home managers from two Vale of York care homes have been nominated for a Healthcare Hero award for their commitment to residents.
The Community Pride Awards, held in conjunction with City of York Council, are a celebration of special individuals and groups whose sterling work marks them as true champions of the place where we live and work.
Alison Redhead, Manager of Minster Grange Care Home, has been nominated by her colleague Helen Degnan, who says Alison is “an exemplary example of a caring, committed and passionate nursing manager.”
Alison is thrilled to have been nominated and said: “I am truly humbled to receive this nomination and grateful that the excellent care delivered at Minster Grange has been recognised, I am proud to work here and keen to do all we can to support the vulnerable people in our community. It is wonderful that this award shines a positive light on the great work being done by Social Care”
Denise Thompson, manager of Wishing Well Care Home opened the doors over 20 years ago and has been nominated for making a difference to hundreds of people and family whose lives have been devastated by dementia.
The CCG congratulate both Alison and Denise on their award nominations and recognise their dedication to health and care in the Vale of York.
The winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony at York Racecourse in October. More information on the awards can be found by visiting: https://www.yorkpress.co.uk/communitypride/
