Lois Read, a care assistant at Bramley Court, has won a Heart of Gold Award at a ceremony on Tuesday 17th January.

The Awards seek to recognise employees for their dedication and commitment in providing high quality care and compassion to all the home’s residents.

Nominations for the award came from residents and their relatives, co-workers, social workers and local health professionals. Lois was chosen from the list of nominations by a panel of previous Heart of Gold award winners from all the other homes in Bramley Court’s group.

Lois said: “I am so thrilled to be awarded this year’s Heart of Gold ambassador at Bramley Court.  I feel very privileged to be recognised in this way and thank all my colleagues.  I am an ordinary person with a wonderful job in a wonderful home”.
