We are delighted to announce that Fairway’s self-grown Carer; Jodie has been awarded with the prestigious Home Care Newcomer Award at the regional Great British Care Awards. Jodie was described by the judging panel as “A passionate and dedicated individual who puts the service users at the heart of everything. An asset to the sector!”
Jodie has demonstrated her commitment to care from the start in July 2018; travelling 3 hours each day to attend our ‘My Care Portfolio’ programme in order to develop her professional skills. She ensured that her portfolio was completed to a high-standard, engaged with classroom discussions where she showed an understanding and empathetic approach to the reasoning and opinions of others. She was able to build her knowledge through a range of theory and practical based assessments and proved her willing at all times.
Jodie has since been working for Fairway as a both a Healthcare Assistant and Support Worker. She is able to demonstrate her versatility, flexibility and willingness to develop within her role when supporting others. During her career, Jodie has stood out as an individual who wants to continuously learn and grow – she is committed to understanding the needs of everyone within her care. Jodie has become an integral member of the team, receiving exceptional feedback from a range of services. She will go the extra mile and is committed to understanding the needs of everyone within her care.
Alex O’Neill – Operations Director at Fairway Homecare commented “We were enormously proud and even more elated when Jodie was shortlisted and won the Homecare Newcomer Award. Jodie is one more off the production line of wonderful self-grown, care professionals that are making a real difference in the West Midlands.
Jodie completed the My Care Portfolio programme and demonstrates all the key ingredients of a wonderful carer. Empathy, a caring nature and compassion are crucial and she embodies them perfectly.”
We would like to congratulate Jodie and thank her for her hard work throughout her career at Fairway so far. Jodie will now go to the National finals in March 2020 and we will support her all the way!
