Bluebird Care is delighted to announce that local Rusthall resident Claudia Oliviera has recently been announced as Care Assistant of the year for Tonbridge & Tunbridge Wells.
The award is an excellent opportunity to celebrate and recognise the good work that so many people who work in care do.
The award was presented by Cllr David Neve and Mrs Jill Neve, Mayor and Mayoress of Tunbridge Wells at a special afternoon tea on 23 February at the company’s office at Pipers Business Centre, Tonbridge.
Following Bluebird Care’s Every Visit Counts Campaign which raised awareness of the importance of the role of Care Assistants in combating loneliness, the award is a great achievement and creates an opportunity to celebrate and recognise excellence in care and highlight the importance of all those in a caring role.
Claudia who chose to work in healthcare because of her passion and love for people was nominated following a survey with customers and delighted to receive the award. She explained: "I did not expect to be recognized in this way for a job that I enjoy doing every day. I am honored to have been nominated Care Worker of the Year and would like to thank everyone who voted for me.
"I know that I am part of a great team of Care Assistants here at Bluebird Care and am grateful in addition for all the support that they have provided since I started!"
Claire Stanley, Care Manager explained that: "Claudia works very hard to make sure that all her customers’ needs are met and she always goes that little bit further to make sure they are well cared for. She is a real credit to my team and our company.
"We have received so many compliments about Claudia’s excellent approach to her role and one customer in particular commented: 'Claudia gets on so well with my husband and makes everything look so easy! She is so happy, cheerful and always takes time for a chat as well as providing care.'"
