Angela Gardner, who has worked at Castle Keep Care Home for 20 years, was thrilled to be named ‘Memory Lane Champion 2016’ at the Barchester Care Awards for the fantastic care she gives to people living with dementia in the home’s Memory Lane Community.
The judges said: ‘Angela views herself as someone completely unremarkable but the opposite is true! She goes above and beyond in her role and will go into the home on her days off to make sure residents have an extra special time.’
Castle Keep had already won two awards in the first heats of the Barchester Care Awards. In addition to Angela, who won both a regional and national award, carer Shaun Hales won ‘Carer/Support Worker of the Year’ in the regional heats.
Well done, Angela!
