#Premium Home Care Company In Running For National Care Award

A premium home care company is currently in the running for receiving a prestigious Care Award through the Great North East Care Awards 2011.

Caremark (Redcar & Cleveland), part of a national home care company Caremark Limited, put forward their Care Manager, Jackie Everidge, for the Home Care Registered Manager Award and have been informed that they are in the final four competing for the prize!

Jackie recently went to the Hilton, Newcastle where she met and was interviewed by the panel of judges. While there, Jackie was photographed and videoed and although she found the experience daunting, she felt she did a good job in representing herself and her company.

As there were a high number of nominations for this Award, Jackie was informed that she had done extremely well to get to the place of one among four finalists and that more Managers of her caliber were needed within the industry.

When asked by the judges how she approached managing her staff, Jackie said, “I place strong emphasis on valuing my team. Through implementing the Caremark system I am able to and give them all the support they need, both as a team and as individuals.”

Caremark (Redcar & Cleveland) are now looking forward to the Awards Dinner on November 19th 2011 to be held at the Hilton in Gateshead when the final winners will be announced.
