The team and residents at a Sanctuary Care home in Scarborough are overjoyed for a much-loved nursing assistant who is a regional finalist in the Great British Care Awards.
Julie Crayton, of Dunollie Residential and Nursing Home, is in the running for The Care Home Worker Award in the Yorkshire and Humberside regional finals of the prestigious awards next month.
The awards celebrate excellence in the care sector, with a series of regional events across England.
Julie, who has worked at Dunollie, in Filey Road for 16 years said: “I am so pleased to have been nominated; this is something which has never happened to me before! I was shocked when I heard the news but really pleased; it is so nice to feel so appreciated. I hope I am doing the home proud.”
Speaking about the residents at Dunollie she said: “They will be really pleased for me. I am here for them and always do my very best to do things which make them happy. If they are happy I know I am doing my job properly.”
The Sanctuary Care home’s deputy manager Janine Lawrence, who nominated her for the award, said: “Julie is an incredible member of our team here and we are over the moon she has been shortlisted. She treats our residents with such kindness and compassion; they absolutely adore her and will be so proud if she wins this award.”
Julie will be attending a black tie awards night in York on Saturday 17 November, where the winner of this and other awards categories will be announced.
