Today (Friday 24 May) Beth met councillors during a visit to the Yate day centre where her work has been recognised at a national level, and to see the wonderful facility available to older people with dementia.
Cllr Matthew Riddle, Chair of the Adults and Housing Committee, was joined by Cllr Ian Boulton, Chairman of South Gloucestershire Council, for a tour of the day centre before Beth was presented with some flowers in recognition of her award-winning work.
Beth, from Chipping Sodbury, has been working in older people’s services for 22 years and has been Centre Manager at Cambrian Green Day Service since it opened in 2010. She was nominated for a Great British Care Award by day service users, their families and fellow staff at the centre.
Cllr Matthew Riddle said: “Warmest congratulations go to Beth on her outstanding achievement. Gaining this national recognition for the work she does with older people with dementia here in South Gloucestershire is something she should be really proud of. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Beth and the team at the day service, people with dementia have an excellent facility which they can come to where they are cared for safely.”
Beth’s manager Beverly Cordy added: "Beth is an inspirational leader and she is very proud of her achievements. Cambrian Green Day Service is always a delight to visit – the service users who attend can be assured that their day will be filled with so many different opportunities for fun, laughter, emotional support, care and a keen interest is taken in them as individuals."
The visit coincided with national Dementia Awareness Week.
The Great British Care Awards celebrate excellence across the care sector and are supported by a range of partner organisations including the Department of Health. The purpose of the awards is to pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work. More details are available online at www.care-awards.co.uk
