SALLY GILMAN, a carer at Green Acres, has been nominated for the Carer of the Year Award, sponsored by Specsavers.
Her anonymous nominator believes she is ‘the loveliest carer they’ve ever seen.’
‘She is absolutely amazing with the residents of Greenacres - she tries to put a smile on every single resident’s face and she brings so much joy to the home.’
‘The residents are looked after in such a professional and caring way by all the staff but Sally deserved a special mention for being quirky and uplifting.’
‘She is the one telling everyone ‘it is nearly Christmas’ and dancing up and down the living room, making jokes and making sure everyone has everything they need.’
Sally has been working at the dementia care home for two years come September, and the nominator believes she has a real bond with the residents.
‘She is an absolute gem, who is 100% in the right job.’
