A carer at a care home in Bushey has been crowned regional Care Practitioner of the Year, making it through to the national finals.
Nolawtee (Nola) Moorut at Bushey House Beaumont Care Home in Bushey picked up the Barchester’s South Division title at the Barchester Care Awards and will now go through to the final in October.
She will be interviewed by the judges for the last round of judging alongside finalists from across the UK at a special awards luncheon to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won the national awarding title.
All entries have been of a very high standard and Nola is thrilled to have been named top in the division.
She said: “I wasn’t expecting to be shortlisted, but I am so pleased, and proud. We don’t work in care for the accolades but it’s wonderful to be recognised by my team and peers, it is nothing short of an honour.”
The awards celebrate staff and volunteers who go the extra mile for the benefit of individuals living in Barchester care homes. More than 1,900 nominations were received from homes across the UK.
General Manager, Azaad Saumtally, said: “This is an amazing achievement, and the staff residents and community are supporting Nola wholeheartedly. There isn’t a more worthy winner, and we’re really excited for the National Awards ceremony in October where Nola will hopefully take home the crown.”
