Sara Kite, a care assistant at Honey Lane, has won a Heart of Gold Award at a ceremony on 29th November. Sara has worked at the care home since 2012.
The Awards seek to recognise employees for their dedication and commitment in providing high quality care and compassion to all the home’s residents.
Karen Dean, manager of Honey Lane said, “Whilst all our carers have hearts of gold, I am delighted that Sara is this year’s Heart of Gold ambassador and it is very well deserved. She is a kind, thoughtful and gentle carer who is adored by the residents, their families and the staff team here at Honey Lane. I am proud to have her in my team – well done Sara.”
Sara was presented with a Tiffany necklace to commemorate her success by Alnur Dhanani, Chairman of Carebase.
Nominations for the award came from residents and their relatives, co-workers, social workers and local health professionals. Sara was chosen from the list of nominations by a panel of previous Heart of Gold award winners from all the other homes in Honey Lane’s group.
Sara said, “Everyone is so lovely here at Honey Lane and all have hearts of gold. I am overwhelmed to be this year’s Heart of Gold Ambassador. Thank you to everyone for all the support and help you have given me to do my job to the best of my ability.”
Altogether there were 29 nominees for the award at Honey Lane and all nominees received a Heart of Gold lapel pin.
