#National award recognises Caremark employee as Carer of the Month

A home care worker for top franchise, Caremark, won a national award which recognised them as Carer of the Month for January 2010. The winner of the award, Nazir Hardisty, joined the home care providing franchise (Kingston) in June 2008 as a senior staff member. This makes her a big influence on junior employees.

Director of Caremark in Kingston, Carl Ward, said that Nazir personifies the franchise’s approach to provided care in the home. He said that she works with a level of desire and dedication that will make a difference to her clients’ lives. Caremark has a franchise network of more than 50 brances in Ireland and the UK. With this much competition, being awarded Carer of the Month is a great achievement for Nazir.

Winning the award for the month of January - when the franchise suffered from snow and conditions that made it difficult to visit clients - displays her sense of duty and resolve. Caremark holds the award as a chance for carers throughout the franchise to be recognised for their commitment and dedication for delivering the best level of care to clients in their homes.

The franchise’s local offices have started giving away their own awards to reward staff members and winners are then put to the head office support team so that they stand a chance to win a national award.
