Sharon Hunt, senior carer at Caring Homes’ Huntercombe Hall in Henley-on-Thames, has been honoured at the Oxfordshire Social Care Awards 2018.
The senior carer was given Highly Commended recognition in the event’s Care Home Worker Award category.
Sally Lorch, Regional Manager for Caring Homes, said: “Sharon is a true care deliverer, she not only cares for and understands each resident’s individual needs, but also cares for the relatives, staff and Huntercombe Hall as a whole. A true representative of the ethos of Caring Homes Group.”
The Care Home Worker Award recognises the significant role of the care home worker in consistently providing a high quality standard, for people living in residential or nursing care, including hospices providing end of life care. Sharon was praised for her total commitment in going the extra mile for residents and colleagues alike.
She has demonstrated a full commitment to caring for older people living with dementia by achieving Caring Homes’ in-house City and Guilds accredited, Living in My World Gold Award. This required Sharon to complete three levels of training and reflection, and evidence of how this had benefited residents, family members and herself.
Huntercombe Hall provides residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 42 elderly residents. The Hall’s historic character was carefully preserved during its conversion to a care home in Henley-upon-Thames.
