National Home Care Company in the running for Great South East Care Award

A well known home care company is currently in the running to receive a prestigious Care Award through the Great South Eastern Care Awards 2011.

Caremark (Aylesbury & Wycombe), part of national home care company Caremark Limited, put forward Nicola Pomroy, a Field Care Supervisor recently promoted from the Care and Support Worker team, for the Care Newcomer Award and has been informed that Nicola has been shortlisted for the Award.

Nicola recently went to Brighton, in Sussex, where she had to attend a short interview by a panel of independent Judges representing the social care sector. The Judges asked Nicola a series of questions about her role and she submitted a 50 word biography for inclusion in the souvenir programme on the evening.

Nicola said: “I have two children and four grandchildren. Hobbies include gardening and riding my motorbike, camping and rallies. I live with my partner Stan and two cats.

“My job is fulfilling and rewarding. I love challenges and keeping busy. I believe that good home care is an important contribution to giving people choice and control over their own lives.”

Caremark (Aylesbury & Wycombe) are now excitedly awaiting the Gala Awards Dinner, which will be held at the Brighton Dome on November 25, 2011.

Janis Anderson, Managing Director of Caremark (Aylesbury & Wycombe) commented: “We are all very excited by Nicola being shortlisted for this Award and are crossing our fingers for her. Nicola proved to be a valuable member of our care staff, so much so that she was rapidly promoted to Field Care Supervisor and has demonstrated dedication and excellence to all our customers”.
