Monkscroft Recognised at Gloucestershire Care Awards
Monkscroft Care Centre in Cheltenham had two finalists at the Gloucestershire Care Providers Association Care Awards held at Hatherley Manor on Thursday 10th October 2019.
Carol Parker, a Nurse at Monkscroft, won the End of Life Care Award, and her colleague Lynne Donaldson, who is Head of Care, was a finalist in the Dementia Award category.
Helen Bayliss, the Trust's Regional Assistant Director for Gloucestershire (East), attended the prestigious awards ceremony with Carol and Lynne and Monkscroft Home Manager Doreen Paisley.
Helen said: “We were delighted to have been shortlisted for the GCPA awards with two of our colleagues from Monkscroft.
“Carol’s win was a wonderful achievement for her and the Trust and Lynne being a finalist added to the richness of our recognition and presence in these Gloucestershire care awards. The dedication of all our employees is a testament to the values and ethos of the Trust which places the resident at the heart of everything we do.”
Carol will now represent the Trust as a finalist in the South West Region finals being held in Bristol later this month.
