Summerwood’s Carly ~ Learning Disability Care Worker of The Year FINALIST!

Huge congratulations to our very own Carly Houghton, Deputy Manager at Summerwood care home, who is one of just 3 finalists in the Daily Echo Proud To Care Awards 2018!

Carly’s nomination was supported by family members of the individuals she supports and you can see from the newspaper article above just how highly valued Carly’s contribution is to their loved one’s care.

Jane Montrose, Managing Director of Apple House care homes, said, ‘Do we seem just a little bit proud of Carly? WE ARE BEYOND PROUD! For Carly, this is so deserved. She always goes above and beyond and so I am not surprised to learn of yet another occasion when Carly has prioritised the needs of those she supports and their families above her own personal obligations.  Carly is one hundred percent focused on each individual and her pro-active approach has been rightfully highlighted. Good luck Carly!’

Carly will be attending the awards ceremony and lunch this Thursday, 15th November, cheered on by Romaine Lawson, Director of Operations.

Daily Echo Editor Andy Martin said, ‘We are delighted to be hosting these very special awards for the second year. The dedication of all those involved in caring for others, whether they be professionally trained or informal or family carers is amazing and these awards are a tribute to them and all they do. Where on earth would we be without them? We heard some wonderful and inspiring stories in last year’s awards. I know it will be the same this year.’
